Gleneagles Kings
A masterpiece designed by James Braid, whose plan for the King's was to test even the best players' shot-making skills.

All the holes have evocative and pithy Scots names. For example, the fifth, "Het Girdle" (Hot Pan), is a challenging Par 3, with trouble every-where except on the green, while 17th's name, "Warslin' Lea" (Wrestling Ground), reflects the difficulty so many golfers have had with this long, sweeping Par 4.

Selecting the right club for each approach shot is the secret on the King's, but even if you don't make a good score, it's certainly one of the most beautiful and exhilarating places to play golf in the world - sweeping views from the tees all around, the rock-faced mountains to the north, the green hills to the south and the peaks of the Trossachs and Ben Vorlich on the western horizon.
