Western Gailes

Course Info

Ayrshire, Scotland
All Courses

The west coast of Scotland is home to some of the finest courses to be found anywhere in the world, and Western Gailes is one of the very best. This classic links is a test of all your golfing skills, so be sure to bring all fourteen clubs because you’re surely going to need them. Many of the world’s greatest players have enjoyed a round here, and we can help you to do the same.

Located on the Ayrshire waterfront, Western Gailes has a reputation for being tough at times, especially when the wind blows in off the sea, but also fair. Put simply, it rewards the good shots and can punish the bad ones. Miss fairways on the one side and your ball could end up out of bounds on the railway line, miss to the other side and it may be on the beach! Keep your tee shot straight, and watch out for the deep bunkers and the punishing rough.

If you need a day off from the golf during your trip, there are a number of impressive landmarks and attractions waiting to tempt you. They include the likes of Dundonald Castle, Barassie Beach and Shewalton Wood, home to an excellent nature reserve. And in nearby Irvine, you can explore the highly rated Scottish National Maritime Museum.

Accommodation options in the local area are many and varied, so be sure to get in touch with our team and to tell us about your preferences. Here at Platinum Golf, we know how stressful it can be for tour organisers to get all the right boxes ticked, but we can do it all for you, including tee times, sightseeing, accommodation and transport. Leave it all to the experts, then just settle back and savour an unforgettable golfing odyssey.

To turn that dream into a glorious reality, just call the Platinum Golf team today on 07711282442. We look forward to chatting with you about your iconic Scotland golf tour.

Platinum Golf Scotland Testimonials

Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.

Michel & Marc

It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well.  Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows.  As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations.  And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable.  Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.

We loved our trip.  If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green.  Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special. 

Russell & Kelly

Thanks again for a fantastic trip !

We look forward to the next one !

We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!


Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!


Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.

Michele & Johannes

Hi Lynda & Stuart,

First, back home safe & sound.

From the bottom of my heart, the two of you are absolutely amazing and delightful. But more than that, so capable. A truly glitch less nine days. So fun!


Our Scottish Golf and Whisky experience was wonderful! Thank you for putting together such a fabulous itinerary. Everything was so well thought out and perfectly timed

Basically, you put together a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything. We would highly recommend you to our friends who are interested in a Scottish golf experience.. Also, thank you for the lovely welcome gifts and taking the time to meet us that Sunday morning at St. Andrews.

When I asked Kevin to describe the trip in one word he said “perfect”, Glynnis said “spectacular” and my word was “awesome”. Pretty simple but the words fit our pictures (almost 1,000) and our memories.

Bill, Kevin & Glynnis

Thank you Lynda and Stewart, the trip was excellent in every way


We got the photo from Panmure and it is so good! Definitely going on my office wall!

My boys and I loved Panmure. As we have discussed before, it is exactly the kind of course and club I love to visit when here. While all the trophy courses are wonderful, they do have a bit of commercialism that I like to ignore. None of that at all at Panmure, just pure golf and pure class.

Thanks for these photos, they are great.

All my best and thanks from my entire family,


What a fantastic journey at St Andrews. Great city, great atmosphere, 3 great courses. I did not like the castle course the same way. I think that the hotel is THE perfect location because we could walk around, go everywhere without using a car , restaurants and bars were max 5 to 7 minutes, perfect.

I would recommand this to every of my golf friends. That is an experience every golfer should live .

My friends were very happy about your professionalism and about the courses , the perfect timing, and the gifts.
