Golf Australia Express : September 2014
As its name suggests, the course runs throughout a glen (or valley) and while many of the holes are wide without too many trees in play, there’s always the danger of deep rough swallowing balls from wayward drives. After all, we are in Scotland and some things just are. Long in parts — take the 618-yard par-5 ninth for example — yet fair throughout, what makes this Scottish gem a matchplay master’s dream track is it offers opportunities to stay in the game no matter where you find your ball. If, that is, you’re brave enough to take on a risk. As spectators, be prepared to witness some amazing escapes during the Ryder Cup. Also expect most matches to go deep, with the team able to traverse the tricky, undulating (sometimes two-tiered) greens best, declared the eventual winner. And finally, be sure to take in the surrounds no matter who is winning. You’ll be wanting to put this place in the itinerary for your next golfing trip to Scotland.
