GLENEAGLES 5* GOLF RESORT
The World-Class Gleneagles Golf Estate is celebrated for having 3 of the top inland courses in Scotland. Kings, Queens and PGA Centenary. Over the years Gleneagles has played host to some of the world’s top golfers, celebrities, and championship golf tournaments. The Queens Course, which was designed by renowned Scottish Architect James Braid, is the shortest of Gleneagle’s three courses. Queen’s was designed to be a reprieve from the tougher and adjacent Kings course. However despite having a front that plays just 3,192 yards long the challenge and difficulty of Queens are often underestimated. Over the years some of the best golfers in the world have found the course to be a good test to make par into the predominant fresh southwesterly breeze.
Due to the Queen’s shortish length. James Braid who was known as a designer who throws in plenty of challenges for golfers of all abilities did not disappoint. The course follows the hollows of the land and threads through high ridges on the north and west sides of the estate. Expect to experience beautiful woodland settings, lochs, ditches, and water hazards, as well as many moorland characteristics.
The Queen’s Course completed a renovation program in 2017. Eighty-nine bunkers of the original bunkers were rebuilt to improve drainage and enhance the sand line visibility on each of these hazards. Fairway mowing lines were also modified to return the course to James Braid’s original design plan. Additionally, the 16th green, which is laid out in a natural bowl shape, was also upgraded to improve drainage.
To sum up. The Queen’s delivers many of the same ‘to die for’ scenery as the King’s course next door but has fewer blind shots. Many golfers and locals are torn between the Queens and The Kings as they are both unique and extraordinary in their own way.
