From the Rocky Mountains to the World's Top Golf Destinations

Founded in 1897 by 3 members from other golf clubs in Glasgow. Their vision was to create a golf course on the Ayrshire coast away from the industrial fog of the city, and free from winter frost that would allow golf all year round. The first nine holes were ready for play by the spring of 1898. Areas have had to be reshaped in the past 60 years as a result of wartime tank manoeuvres across the land. The course is used for final qualifying when the Open is played at Turnberry or Royal Troon.
**Visiting a great club the 1st time is usually special. After exhibiting at the Scottish Golf Show 2015, I relished the opportunity to play Western Gailes. Treated like a distant relative and given the clubhouse tour by Mr. Vice Captain, it was a privilege to soak up the atmosphere & the history of this magnificent club. The course is excellent and fair. An inviting hole to start, the 2nd shows its teeth! The par 5 6th has to be in the mix for top par 5's I’ve ever played while the 7th has to be the hardest stoke index 15 in Scotland! Surrounded by neighbouring courses on the coastline, this is one you don't want to miss!**
