Course Review and Comments

On your travels from Turnberry to St. Andrews I would suggest a stop over at Gleneagles Hotel.

Apart from the Michelin star rated restaurant, spa and numerous other amenities such as fishing and shooting, they have three very good golf courses.

The Kings, Queens and the newer Centenary which will host the 2104 Ryder Cup.
Most consider the Kings to be the top choice but my favorite is the Queens course.
It's a bit shorter but no less a challenge than the Kings.
The Centenary replaced an older course. This new course was originally known as the "Monarch" when first designed by Jack Nicklaus.

Some say it is more American than Scottish in style which would not be surprising given its designer.

The profile shown above for the Queens states that carts are available. Unless something has changed very recently Gleneagles does not allow carts anywhere other than the Centenary course.

So if you have time on your Scottish trip, go stay a few days at Gleneagles Hotel and enjoy the food, hospitality and some good inland golf. Play the Queens and the Kings but skip the Centenary.
