Gleneagles Hotel (Queen's course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1919

Gleneagles Hotel (Queen's Course): Although overshadowed by the better known King’s course, the character of the Queen’s is very much in the spirit of its royal neighbour, and well worth playing. The views over the Perthshire hills are just as captivating and the course itself another parkland/moorland gem designed by James Braid.

The Queen's threads its way through high ridges on the north and west sides of the Gleneagles estate. Here you'll find a mix of lovely woodland settings and more open moorland stretches. There are many excellent and testing holes set out over the wonderfully rolling terrain, with lochans (ponds) and ditches as water hazards.

Stay & Play at Gleneagles: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

The original trio of courses at Gleneagles included the current King's and Queen's layouts as well as the short, tight and testing Prince's course. The Prince's predominantly comprised par-3 holes, and provided an excellent warm-up course prior to taking on the more senior regal pair. The Prince's course no longer exists, having made way for the Jack Nicklaus-designed PGA Centenary course in the early 1990s.

Published ranking

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
