Gailes Golf Classic to be staged on classic courses for first time
Being among the best at something is no mean feat, and that is never more relevant than when it comes to golf in Scotland. It’s no surprise, then, that the popularity of golf in Ayrshire has continued to grow and grow.
You have the chance to experience some of Ayrshire’s finest courses for yourself by taking part in the inaugural staging of the Gailes Golf Classic, set to be played over Dundonald Links, Gailes Links and Western Gailes.
For Dundonald Links, news that it had been chosen to host the inaugural P&H Championships for the Tartan Tour might have been cause for celebration alone, but add in the prestigious Golf Environment Awards Course of the Year 2014 honour and the good news just keeps coming for this modern links classic in Ayrshire.
A short distance away, Gailes Links has been one of the mainstays of Scottish links golf for decades. Owned by Glasgow Golf Club, which is the ninth oldest golf club in the world, it has been on the R&A’s Open qualifying roster since 1973. It has hosted numerous championship golf events over the years, and will be the sole Scottish host of final Open qualifying for four consecutive years until 2017.
Much like Gailes Links, Western Gailes is very experienced in hosting championships, having hosted the 1972 Curtis Cup and the 2007 European Amateur Team Championships. Regarded by many as the hidden gem of Scottish links golf it gives everything need for an enjoyable yet challenging round.
