When Gleneagles first opened its doors in 1924, this magnificent countryside estate in the heart of Scotland was described as a “riviera in the Highlands”. Today, as a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, Gleneagles continues to offer an unrivalled array of attractions, including luxury hotel accommodation, a range of bespoke suites, three championship golf courses, an award-winning spa, and Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, the only restaurant in Scotland to hold two Michelin stars.
Gleneagles is truly the home of golf in Scotland and one of the country’s top golf resorts. Over the years, Gleneagles has hosted a number of major golf tournaments, the most notable being the 2014 Ryder Cup, which was played on the PGA Centenary Course. Gleneagles will also host the 2019 Solheim Cup, which is undoubtedly the biggest event in women’s golf.
The natural beauty of the Queen’s Course inspires the world’s most experienced players. The Queen’s Course, in its long history, has played host to some of the world’s golfing greats.
The beautiful settings and the challenge of the golf course have attracted such top golfers as Johnny Miller, Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, and Lee Trevino, as well as great names from the entertainment and sports worlds including Sean Connery, Burt Lancaster, Bing Crosby, Jackie Stewart, and astronaut Alan Shepard (the only man to hit a golf shot on the moon).
Threading through high ridges on the north and west sides of the estate, the Queen’s golf course offers lovely woodland settings, lochans and ditches as water hazards, as well as many moorland characteristics.
