THE GOLF COURSES

PGA Centenary Course - Host venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup Matches.

The PGA Centenary Course, created by Jack Nicklaus, is a modern classic.
Even for a champion and acclaimed golf architect like Nicklaus, The PGA Centenary Course was a challenge. It had to be a great golf course and, set as it is in the heart of Scotland, the country that gave the world golf, Nicklaus described the course as "The finest parcel of land in the world I have ever been given to work with".
The tees are graded at each hole in five stages, including a challenging 6,815 yards from the white markers down to 5,322 from the red. Fittingly, the PGA Centenary Course begins by playing southeast towards the glen, sweeping up the Ochil Hills to the summit of the pass below Ben Shee which joins it to Glendevon.

A feature of the PGA Centenary Course is the feast of views of the spectacular countryside in which Gleneagles is set. Putting on the two-tier second green, you are distracted by the lush panorama of the rich Perthshire straths. As you move westwards over the next few holes, the rugged Grampians come into view on the right, then distantly purple ahead, Ben Vorlich and the
mountains above the Trossachs.

Kings Course

The King's Course, opened in 1919, is a masterpiece of golf course design, which has tested the aristocracy of golf, both professional and amateur.
James Braid's plan for the King's Course was to test even the best players' shot-making skills over the eighteen holes.
You find out all about it with your first approach shot. If you have driven straight and long from the tee, you will have what looks like a simple pitch to the elevated green. But you must be sure to select the correct club, because the shot is always a little longer than you think, with the wind over the putting surface often stronger than you can feel it from the fairway. And if you do not make the severely sloping green, a bunker yawns twenty feet below.
Selecting the right club for each approach shot is the secret on the King's. It is certainly one of the most beautiful and exhilarating places to play golf in the world, with the springy moorland turf underfoot, the sweeping views from the tees all around, the rock-faced mountains to the north, the green hills to the south, and the peaks of the Trossachs and Ben Vorlich on the western horizon.
Readers of Celebrated Living, the luxury magazine for American Airlines, voted the King's Course 6th in their Platinum list of International Golf Courses.
All the holes have evocative and pithy Scots names. For example, the fifth, "Het Girdle" (Hot Pan), is a challenging par 3 with trouble everywhere except on the green, while 17th's name, "Warslin' Lea" (Wrestling Ground), reflects the difficulty so many golfers have had with this long, sweeping par 4.

Queens Course

The natural beauty of the Queen's Course inspires the world's most experienced players. The Queen's Course, in its long history, has played host to some of the world's golfing greats.
The beautiful settings and the challenge of the golf course have attracted such top golfers as Johnny Miller, Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, and Lee Trevino, as well as great names from the entertainment and sports worlds including Sean Connery, Burt Lancaster, Bing Crosby, Jackie Stewart, and astronaut Alan Shepard (the only man to hit a golf shot on the moon).
Threading through high ridges on the north and west sides of the estate, the Queen's golf course offers lovely woodland settings, lochans and ditches as water hazards, as well as many moorland characteristics.
At 3,192 yards long, the challenge of the first nine can be deceptive, with even some of the best players finding it a test to make par into a fresh south westerly breeze. Do not be lulled into a sense of false security as you stand on the first tee. The "Trystin' Tree," or lover's meeting place, after which the hole is named, is a challenging opener. The ground falls away at your feet, the fairway swings round to the left and slopes towards the trees, and there are a couple of cunningly placed bunkers testing your approach into the miniscule green.

THE HOTEL

When the Gleneagles Hotel opened in 1924 it was described as 'a Riviera in the Highlands' and 'the eighth wonder of the world'. Today, this luxury hotel remains dedicated to excellence, just as it was in its earliest days when "the avowed intention of the management was to create happiness".
The hotel was built by the former Caledonian Railway Company, with its own railway station just minutes away, and is now owned by Diageo plc, custodians of iconic brands such as Johnnie Walker, Guinness, and Tanqueray gin..
Dining is an essential part of the Gleneagles experience. Inspired by the pick of field, wood, river and sea, the menus are bursting with flavour and imagination. From the grand formality of The Strathearn to the bustling vibe of Deseo, from the Michelin magnificence of Andrew Fairlie to the clubby ambience of The Dormy Bar & Grill, the restaurants suit all tastes and occasions.
Elegant SPA offers a wide variety of Ayurvedic massages, Orient-inspired reflexology, natural facials and hydro therapies to cleanse the body.
