Formed in 1897, the Club has hosted a number of prestigious tournaments, including the Scottish Amateur Championship, which returned for the eighth time to Western Gailes in 2011, the 1972 Curtis Cup, the 1964 PGA Championship, and in 2007 was host to the European Men's Amateur Golf Team Championship. The course is used for final qualifying when the Open is played at Turnberry or Royal Troon, and also as a final qualifying venue for the Seniors Golf Open.
This natural links course offers undulating fairways, occasionally interupted by three meandering burns. Greens that are cleverly located in naturally folded ground, some protected by burns whilst others guarded by sand dunes. The course is highly rated and is 35th in the Top 100 courses of the British Isles.
The Clubhouse sits proudly overlooking the links, with views across the bay to the Isle of Arran beyond. The perfect setting to relax after the challenge of our famous course.
