Western Gailes

View Western Gailes's impressive golf course situated in incredible Scotland.

Western Gailes

Located between Irvine Bay and the railway on Ayrshires remarkable stretch of links coastline, lies the magnificent Western Gailes Golf Club. The club dates its history back to 1897 and offers the golfer a blend of the traditional and modern. The course is highly rated and is 35th in the Top 100 courses of the British Isles and has played host to a number of tournaments, including the final qualifying for the Open at Royal Troon and Turnberry and the Curtis Cup and eight Scottish Amateur Championships.

Western Gailes presents a fair challenge with very few blind shots. It makes good use of the natural contours of the land but the placement of its bunkers is severe and they will undoubtedly catch any wayward shots. Major hazards include the railway line to the east of the course, the beach to the west, three burns and a testing breeze off the Firth of Clyde. Any change in the direction or strength of the wind, that typically varies between south-westerly and north-westerly off the adjacent Firth of Clyde, provides new challenges that are compounded by the undulating terrain and finely contoured greens cleverly located and set in the folds of the surrounding sand dunes.

Together with the line of dunes running down the coastal stretch from the 5th to the 13th holes, the out of bounds wall from the 14th onwards, the plentiful supply of pot bunkers plus the meandering burns, all combine to present variety and a memorable challenge.
