The King's Course opened for play in 1919 and in 1921 hosted the first informal Ryder Cup match between Great Britain and the USA. The British team included James Braid who was the designer of both the King’s and Queen’s Courses at Gleneagles. The King’s Course is widely regarded as one of the best moorland courses in the world, with sweeping views of the Ochil hills and the peaks of the Trossachs, this is a golf course with breathtaking scenery. For a golfer to play in the early evening of a Scottish summer is to experience one of the most harmonious and exciting rounds of golf in a perfect Scottish setting.
Braid’s Brawest, Braid’s signature hole, happens to be my favourite hole on this course.
