Western Gailes is a highly traditional Scottish private members club renowned for the exceptional condition of its undulating links and friendly clubhouse where all their visitors are ‘members for the day’.

Unlike many links courses where the sea is almost completely hidden by massive dunes, or where the course itself is now a long way from the sea, at Western Gailes you are always aware of its presence and beauty, particularly so on the marvellous stretch of holes from the 5th to the 13th.

The course puts no more emphasis on length than it does on the delicate approach shot or the well-struck medium or long-iron, but all these skills are examined during a round at Western Gailes. Perhaps that is why, combined with its beautiful setting and most warm welcome, it has captivated so many golfers for so long.
