James Braid

Britain prospered in the years after World War I, and Gleneagles is a living memory of that long ago time. The club was established in 1908 by Donald Matheson, who decided that his Caledonian Railway Company could profit from a destination resort that would bring in (and out again) well-heeled vacationers. The architect chosen for the course was James Braid, who worked in concert with C. K. Hutchinson with input from Matheson himself; the course finally debuted in 1919. The setting could not be more promising: knolls and valleys cloaked in evergreen and birch trees amid gorse and heather extending to reveal a superb panorama in every direction. In a variation on a common sentiment of designers, Braid is quoted as saying of the King's, "God made this golf course, I only found it." The layout is gentle enough for resort golfers but tough enough for numerous competitions over the years.

Great course, some blind shots. If playing for the first time recommend a caddie or someone who has played the course previously.
