Playing Western Gailes on a very breezy day gave us a true test of our golf skills. The winds required our caddies to regularly adjust our club selections. The course is a classical links course along the Scotish coastline with wonderful views. Demands and challenges abounded with undulating fairways, sand dunes, berms, bunkers, hidden greens, and plenty gorse in which to lose balls. The day we played the wind was very strong and the weather changed from overcast to clear, to a rain shower, to clear again. So glad I wore my rain gear as it helped a lot against the strong cool wind and saved time trying to put it on when the showers came. The caddies were terrific giving great guidance on how to play each hole, read putts, and locate balls. We had a terrific day of golf on this over one 100 year old course. Western Gailes is a “hidden gem” that should not be overlooked when playing in Scotland’s Ayeshire/Prestwick /Irvine area. Lunch afterward in the Clubhouse was excellent and we learned even more of the course’s exciting history. We highly recommend caddies for playing the course.
