Glasgow Gailes is the second course for the Glasgow Golf Club, was founded in 1787 and is the ninth oldest golf club in the world. Originally, Glasgow Golf Club started in Glasgow City and the members then opened a course in 1892 down by the coast. In 1912, Willie Park Junior revised the course. Glasgow Gailes is a classic links course and the greens always seem to be green and true. This links course is notorious for its gorse and heather-lined fairways and with smaller greens; it is a tough test for final qualifying when the Open is at Troon. Straight and good driving is required to score well and Glasgow Gailes is another of the Link Clubs hidden gems.
