Tough golf challenge for us non-European duffers! Pristine condition, it ain't. Challenging and interesting, it is. Rock Bottom (sorry Scratch!) deals to be had here for golf, lodging, food packages, etc. Yes, you'll be "roughing" it in most respects vs. going to Pinehurst, Pebble Beach,...More

The Gailes is a links course full of pot bunkers and heather, a sweeping vista that reminds you of the Scottish courses that you see on TV. A good shot can easily turn into disaster with the number of pot bunkers and deep bunkers with...More

Be sure you take enough balls! We heard this from many players and were glad we listened. The course was in very good shape except several cups were set crooked. Flags would not stay straight. A true links course with lots of heather, grasses and...More
