Western Gailes Golf Club

Western Gailes

Region: Scotland

2021 Average Rating: 5.00 

Golfshake Rating: 4.82

Review Comment: "Played it at the end of an unusually dry summer, the course was fantastically baked out like an Open from the 1970s. Greens were very smooth and pure, ran much quicker than you'd expect on a links perhaps because they're a little sheltered from the wind. Every shot needed thinking about, it's quite mentally draining! I scored well but still came away feeling it had beaten me. A formidable foe."
