course description

Jack Nicklaus did not receive the applause he is used to for his PGA Centenary course at Gleneagles. The problem isn't the quality of the golf, but rather the way that the contemporary design, which dominates the landscape, clashes with the club's other layouts, which seem to emerge from the terrain on which they are built. In Nicklaus' defense, he was hired to create a course that could separate out the very best from the best, and in that respect he definitely delivered. So the Centenary may not be very enchanting, and its holes may lack individuality, but it is hands down the most difficult eighteen at Gleneagles. As such, Nicklaus' course attracts tournaments as promised: the Johnnie Walker Championship takes place here annually, and the Ryder Cup came in 2014. There is ample space here for the Tour and all the press and support staff and spectators that come with it.

Superb course in the middle of a beautiful hunting region. The setup is wild, pure and inspiring. Better to avoid rainy / wet conditions but overall an absolute jewel !

Played the PGA Centenary Course a week before it closed for host the 2014 Ryder Cup and the conditioning was already superb. A £500,000 investment in a sub-air system has transformed the greens and...
