Gleneagles is an AA Five Red Star golf resort hotel set in 850 acres of stunning scenery. The resort celebrated its 90th anniversary in June 2014 and was when it was opened on 7 June 1924 it was described as ‘a Riviera in the Highlands’ and ‘the eighth wonder of the world’.

Golf at Gleneagles is an unashamed pleasure. In March 1999, Gleneagles reintroduced Visitor Golf to make the three championship standard courses available to a wider audience. Playing over the immaculate greens and fairways provides unrivalled views of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The courses were the inspiration of two of the world’s most famous golfers, James Braid, five times winner of The Open, who designed the King’s and Queen’s, and Jack Nicklaus, Golfer of the Century, who created the PGA Centenary Course (formerly named the Monarch’s).
