Gleneagles Trail

It was here in the heart of Perthshire that James Braid created what is widely regarded as his masterpiece. The majestic setting of the King's and Queen's courses at the famous Gleneagles Hotel stand as a monument to his contribution to the game as a golf course builder. Follow this trail and enjoy a game here or at the nearby courses of Crieff, Taymouth Castle and Alloa. The PGA Centenary Course, also at Gleneagles, will host the Ryder Cup Championship in 2014.
