Golf courses

Kings Course

The King's Course has been a frequent stop on both the PGA Tour and Ladies European Tour since its inception in 1919. James Braid was determined to create a course which placed the emphasis on the golfer's ability to shape his shots and be creative, which explains why Lee Trevino, one of the most natural players to ever play the game, said that, "If Heaven is as good as this, I sure hope they have some tee-times left."

Queens Course

Threading through the high ridges on the north and east side of the estate, the Queen's has many moorland characteristics, and offers beautiful woodland settings as the course meanders through the glen. With indigenous lochans and streams incorporated as water hazards, this is a beautiful and genuine Perthshire classic.

PGA Centenary Course

Jack Nicklaus' monster PGA Centenary hosts the 2014 Ryder Cup Matches, and while most agree that the Golden Bear has created a modern classic, Jack himself gave the credit to the canvas he was supplied with, saying that it was "the finest parcel of land in the world I have ever been given to work with."

Hotel Information

The Gleneagles Hotel is part of the Five Red Star Resort, and has recently celebrated its 80th anniversary. The quality of service on offer is unrivalled, with the hotel retaining a member of staff for each hotel guest.

The grandiose building was designed to emulate the opulent style of a French château, while the manicured gardens were inspired by the celebrated 18th century horticulturist Capability Brown.

Whilst it is luxurious and impeccably furnished, the management maintains a relaxed attitude, in contrast to the stiff, austere atmosphere of other 5* hotels.

Set amidst 850 acres of Scotland's most beautiful scenery, there are few finer destinations for a relaxing getaway.

The hotel's elegant bar stocks over 100 single malt whiskies.

Dining 

There is no shortage of dining options at Gleneagles. With the only two Michelin star restaurant in the whole of Scotland, the culinary experience is bound to delight.

At The Strathearn, the resort’s primary restaurant, you’ll discover fine dining using the best local ingredients with a menu designed with flavours from France and Scotland. The venue has been open since 1924 and has two Rosettes to its name.

If you want to experience Scotland’s only two Michelin star restaurant then at Andrew Fairlie you will find what the resort calls a “more exclusive dining experience”. A highlight is Andrew’s signature smoked lobster which results from a 12-hour infusion over whisky barrels. The fine palate will thrive here as the team guide you through a culinary journey.

Gleneagles resort also has a number of alternative dining options if you’re looking for something more casual. At Deseo, the Mediterranean-inspired bistro, the menu hails from Spain, Italy and Greece as well as serving a wide range of steaks and meat.

Afternoon tea and cakes can be taken in The Bar or you can relax at any time in Braid’s Coffee Lounge.

The Clubhouse

The Dormy Clubhouse Bar and Grill is the perfect place to relax after a round of golf. With views over the 18th holes of two of Gleneagles’ courses, it has a number of different seating areas as well as an all-day menu. There are a number of dishes - spicy choices from the restaurant’s very own tandoor oven or something more casual with modern bar food classics.

Practice Facilities

Gleneagles has a 320 yard double-ended driving range with capacity for 40 golfers to help focus on the long game, two putting greens, a short game pitching area, undercover pitching bays and three short game practice greens with five varied bunkers.

What else is there to do at Gleneagles?

The estate offers a wealth of outdoor pursuits including horse riding, shooting, fly-fishing, falconry, mountain biking, tennis, squash and off-road driving. Indoors at The Club there is state of the art fitness equipment, two swimming pools, an outdoor hot pool, tennis courts, a gym, Turkish baths, a sauna as well as first-class health and beauty treatments.

At the multi-award winning spa you will find a range of treatments ranging from Ayurvedic massages, natural facials and hydrotherapy to resident experts in Reiki and reflexology.

At the world famous shooting and fishing school you can turn your hand to clay-pigeon shooting, whilst at the fishing school your catch can be chilled for you to take home or it can be cooked by the chef for a celebratory meal.

The Equestrian School is renowned for being one of the best in the world. Horse riding lessons are on offer for every ability and the facilities cover 50 acres to include two arenas enabling 700 spectators to watch events. Its accompanying stables house 30 ponies and horses.

For something a little bit different you can try out the world’s first Gundog school. Guests are able to learn how to handle a trained gundog, exhibiting obedience and handling skills.

If you have a dog of your own then you’re able to bring it along with you and book a place in Gleneagles’ kennels. The resort also offers dog training lessons to instill obedience. Working with the site’s trainers you’ll be given a programme to help develop a better relationship with your dog.

Excitement is to be had at the 4x4 off road driving courses, known to be two of Scotland’s most taxing. Designed by some of the UK’s leading off-roaders, the courses have both natural and man-made obstacles including ditches, water splashes and gullies as well as the obligatory steep gradients.

Just thought I would let you know that the overnight stay you organised for us at Gleneagles hotel was first class, in fact I have recommended it to everyone I know and have given a few people your contact number. I hope this was ok. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was absolutely fantastic. Thanks again,

I recently went on a golf break to Gleneagles along with my father and our experience was out of this world. Both of us are keen golfers are were really looking forward to the experience of playing one of the top golf courses in Scotland amid the beautiful Perthshire countryside.

We were certainly not disappointed as everything at Gleneagles lived up to our every expectation. From the moment we walked in to the iconic Gleneagles Hotel to the last putt on the 18th green of the Kings course, we felt really lucky to be in such a grand golf venue. It was truly memorable. The course was in magnificent condition with a wind strong enough to increase the challenge. We absolutely loved the design of the Kings Course and both agreed it was the finest golf course we had ever played. The courses we play on future golf holidays certainly have a lot to live up to now that we have experienced the best of the best!

All staff in the Hotel and Golf area were thoroughly professional and extremely helpful. The hotel was on another level to other five star hotels and golf resorts we have been lucky enough to stay in the past.

We enjoyed a fantastic steak dinner in one of the restaurants which was cooked to perfection and of the highest quality. The service, whilst being efficient was not overwhelming and although a little more than I would normally pay, was worth every penny.

My dad and I often reflect on our weekend golf trip to Gleneagles and have agreed that it will forever be a feature in our annual golfing calendar.

I would like to thank for your assistance and allowing us to have the opportunity to enjoy such a world famous location. We would normally not have the means to experience such a golfing haven but thanks to the value for money on offer at Your Golf Travel we will be back time and time again.Thanks again and here’s to next year!

A memorable break

The whole experience on our golf break was absolutely fantastic. From the Sunday at the Johnnie Walker Classic to our departure from Scotland, the hotel, staff and the food were all unbelievable...Gleneagles has shot to the head of the class in my opinion.

The PGA Centenary golf course was fantastic; a dream come true and my husband even managed a birdie on one of the holes. I also loved my spa treatment and no matter what I say, I can’t praise the hotel enough!We did not want for anything throughout our stay.The golf break package Your Golf Travel put together was so good that I will be looking to book another golf vacation again for somewhere else in Scotland...although it will be hard to resist the call of Gleneagles when I browse your website!I think that Scotland is an underrated country because it is so picturesque all around Perthshire but there is so much to see and do.

So again, many thanks to YourGolfTravel, in organising this very special weekend golf break. I will also be looking to go to the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles...I understand you will be selling packages that will allow me to do this. Count me in!

The Kings was our favourite

Gleneagles - what can one say?

First class hotel - from the moment we arrived to when we left the service was absolutely top notch - nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived mid evening - having played the Rosemount course at Blairgowrie on our way down and had eaten there too.

The room was good and we watched Hunter Mahan win the Shell Houston open. Breakfast the next day was also superb and again the service was top notch.

We played the Kings course - me from the whites and my wife from the reds - and I started with a par - and then it rained and the wind got up. We persevered and by the time we finished the eighth hole the rain had stopped and the sun made a welcome appearance. We stopped at the wonderful halfway house for a very welcome bacon roll and cup of tea.

The back nine was much better as the sun was out and it was more downhill than the front nine - and I managed to finish with 3 pars and ended up playing to handicap. That made me very happy - this was my birthday treat - especially as the greens had been scarified and ended up with lots of tramlines - putting wasn't easy as the ball stayed in the grooves or if putting across them it bobbled a lot.

We had a cup of tea and a muffin each in the Dormy Clubhouse afterwards which was very nice and the atmosphere in the clubhouse was warm and friendly. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and I've now crossed off one of the 'must play' courses from my list.

Although there were quite a few blind shots - it was much more enjoyable than the Ryder Cup 2014 course which we've been round at the Johnnie Walker Championships.

Many thanks to Your Golf Travel for their help in organising this and we look forwards to our next trip.

It is rare that a trip exceeds your expectations, but our trip did. We went to the Open and then on to Gleneagles, and St. Andrews and it was exceptional.  The Open at Muirfield was spectacular and Phil’s winning was a plus, but I was pulling for Lee.  The Jury’s Inn, in Edinburgh was strategically located, and was very appropriate for a golf trip. It is a no frills property and if I returned I would stay in nicer property. The staff was very helpful and the location was very good. 

Gleneagles was off the charts on the nice scale. My wife would have taken up residence if we hadn’t had to move on to St. Andrews. The golf, facilities, food and service are second to none.  The caddie master at Gleneagles, Donald was very accommodating.  We played the Centenary Course which will host the Ryder Cup in 2014.  We enjoyed the layout, but the fairways will need a lot of work before they are ready to host the Ryder Cup.  We enjoyed the course and the experience of playing here. I shot an 82, which was a good score for me.

There is one word I would use to describe the Gleneagles experience, and that word is 'sumptuous'.  

From the moment of arrival, and a friendly welcome from Ian, resplendent in kilt and tweed jacket at the front door, to Joe the porter who immediately took charge of our luggage, to the concierge, "can I park your car for you, sir?", the warmth and friendliness completely enveloped us. 

We were lucky to be placed In a corner room, which gave a view of the rolling Perthshire hills on one side, and the tennis courts on the other. Luxurious comfort awaited us in this lovely room, and the quiet and stillness of the place ensured undisturbed sleep. 

The 18 holes of the Queen's Course the next day proved challenging for me, a relatively novice golfer, but the splendour of the views around us more than made up for the average quality of our golf. We were even lucky enough to have a couple of deer run across in front of us at one point. The golf experience was extremely well organised, and the Dormy Clubhouse was alive and buzzing with Ryder Cup fever. 

Back at the Hotel there were many other delights waiting to be explored. The Spa is the last word in luxury and comfort and in the evening, the food and service in the Strathearn Restaurant rounded off an incredible experience. 

We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have tasted the experience of two days with golf at Gleneagles Hotel. We are going to be working as Marshalls during the Ryder Cup, and we now know the experience which awaits the teams of golfers. Lucky boys!!

A special place to stay
5 Star Rating
Thank you for arranging our break to Gleneagles, it really was special. I was a bit dubious before arriving at the hotel that you had actually managed to get us booked in. I had made several attempts to make a booking but was told there were no vacancies. I was recommended your website by my son-in-law and following the great service we received we will recommend it to friends and family.

Our stay at Gleneagles was excellent. The booking had been made as a birthday celebration for my husbands 60th birthday. On checking in he was immediately wished 'happy birthday'.  A little personal touch which spoke volumes for their attention to detail.  Not only did this happened on three separate occasions throughout our stay but the hotel also delivered a small gift for him to our room with a hand written gift card, making our stay very special indeed.

After spending a restful evening we enjoyed a breakfast which offered a large variety of choice, to be eaten enjoying stunning views out over the grounds to the distant hills. Suitably fuelled up my husband took on the challenge of the Kings Course.  

From standing on the first tee he was anticipating a very enjoyable round of golf. The course was a challenge but very well maintained. The greens were faster than what he was used to with a lot if blind shots and a few words of encouragement from a green keeper, pointing out how to play the twelfth hole was greatly appreciated.

It was a beautiful day to play golf and I'm sure he would like to try the challenge of the other two courses. I know I wouldn't object to staying at the hotel. We recently stayed at another well known 5* hotel in London but I'm afraid it was way behind the standard of Gleneagles.

Thanks once again for helping me to arrange this special week-end.

We had a fantastic time at Gleneagles. We even met Tom Watson and Keegan Bradley on the course (we stayed around The Open Championship) and even saw Gary Player in the hotel!

Very well organised and hassle free - many thanks -for your help.

It was a very interesting experience, but one night was too short a stay; Gleneagles Hotel has evolved dramatically into a varied and self-contained, modern resort, whilst retaining an olde world charm. At one time it was primarily about the golf - then the Kings, Queens and Princes courses - but now there's so much more to see and do. To do justice to the Hotel would take, in my opinion, a minimum stay of 3 nights, just to sample what it has to offer. The golf is world class, albeit the Kings seems a lot more undulating than previously remembered. The Queens is quirky in places (in particular the 10th), but absolutely magnificent. Didn't play the PGA, but it looked tremendous and will be a fitting venue for the Ryder Cup.

We have just arrived back home after a memorable time in Scotland culminating in the visit to Gleneagles and we were going to contact you but you beat us to it.

We had the most fabulous time at Gleneagles from the start when it poured with rain but Helen, the Guest Relations Manager, stepped in and was brilliant. Our room was ready so she took us to it and explained everything including Archie’s accommodation with blanket and two bowls! Robbie had ordered a bottle of bubbly for us that we opened there and then and toasted our children. Helen also gave us a Gleneagles present that was a surprise and much appreciated and Heather is sending her a card of thanks.

Let’s do golf first. Heather played the Kings on the first afternoon with just a caddie but there was an enormous society and the round was quite slow so she stopped at the 14th as we would have missed dinner. Day 2 the Queens with two other golfers and a very good caddie. She had a great round and thoroughly enjoyed it.

My fishing was superb both at Breco and then on the Gleneagles lake dry fly fishing for brownies, a great honour for me. The ghillies were very friendly and I was even allowed to take Archie to the lake. Gleneagles hotel is an experience in itself. Magnificent service in every department, two great restaurants with food that above all was flavoursome and enjoyable. The room in Braid was perfect especially with the patio to let Archie out and then to walk him. We could go on and on for ever.

Finally to you. It would not have been possible or so special without your organising it. Every detail was covered and the whole visit (weather excepted) went off without a hitch. Many many thanks for your exceptional service and helpfulness and it is obvious that your rapport with Gleneagles is a major part in ensuring that we the customers have an outstanding experience.

Having come from the 5* Star Old Course Hotel our breath was taken away by Gleneagles from the first moment - it truly is something else. The surroundings, accommodation, food and particularly the staff are just outstanding - this is a 'must do' too. As for Golf, the PGA Ryder Cup course is sensational, yet the Kings course is in equally good condition and arguably far more scenic. Very simply 10 out of 10.
