We are pleased to say that the courses at Gleneagles are in excellent condition following a programme of winter maintenance and a bout of dry, sunny weather in May and June.

One of the most significant projects at Gleneagles recently was the extensive development programme with a veiw to restoring The King’s Course to its original glory.  The James Braid-designed course is in fact due to celebrate its 100th birthday in 2019 and is widely regarded as a masterpiece in course design. 

The King's Course is famed for hosting the very first match between British and American professionals in 1921 and this historic course has been taken back to how it would have been in Braid’s day. The relaunched King’s Course now tests different skills and offers golfers a more traditional playing experience to the pristine and defined PGA Centenary Course.  From the feedback received so far, guests are delighted to have this choice.

Further investment in the Gleneagles’ golf offering includes a programme of development at the PGA National Golf Academy. The retail offering has been enhanced to provide an even broader range of leading golf brands, including Titleist, Taylor-Made, Mizuno, Ping and Callaway.

The golfer’s journey has also been enhanced with the launch of a brand new bar, Auchterarder 70, in The Dormy Clubhouse.  Auchterarder 70 – which is the hotel’s original telephone number – is an atmospheric, 1920s-style bar, which offers striking views over the 18th hole of The King’s and Queen’s Courses and an outstanding range of locally-sourced craft beer and snacks.

A number of different lessons are available at the school, ranging from introductory 45-minute sessions to family tuition and hawking sessions where hawks are flown at wild quarry, all under the expert tutelage of seasoned falconry instructors. 

Ferreting: Children aged 8 and upwards and animal-loving adults can enjoy 45-minute lessons during which they will learn how to handle and work friendly ferrets. After walking the ferrets on a harness, guests can also enjoy racing them and tracking their ferrets through an artificial rabbit warren.
