The reputation of Western Gailes as one of the game's finest and more exacting courses has spread worldwide as evidenced by its numerous visitors from around the world including golfing legends from this and the last century.

The great Harry Vardon arrived at Western Gailes in June 1903 celebrating his fourth Open victory. In 1923 its attractions were being lauded by the then US Open Champion Gene Sarazen who played the course with three other outstanding professionals.

Greats from the second half of the 20th century such as Gary Player, Tom Watson and Tony Jacklin have also visited, while from the modern game Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson have all tested their mettle over this classic links course.

The clubhouse sits at the very heart of Western Gailes – both geographically, as unusually for a links course it sits halfway along the course, and for the traditional comforts it offers our members and visitors.

From the moment you step into the clubhouse you will relish the day ahead. The entrance is warm and welcoming, while the main hall indicates the pleasures that lie ahead, including a first glimpse over the Firth of Clyde to Arran. The main bar provides a warm haven in which to anticipate the treat ahead or reflect on the glories or challenges of your round. The dining room allows you to overlook the course while enjoying lunch or dinner and to again enjoy the ambience enjoyed routinely by the members. Elsewhere, the main locker room provides a unique insight to the very earliest beginnings of the present clubhouse, for here the original lockers remain in place with some having been handed down from founding father to grandson and beyond.

Come and walk in the footsteps of some legends of the great game of golf.
