flopic7 review

Ahead of my trip to Ayrshire I received a lot of recommendations to play Western Gailes. And it didn't disappoint. In the current Corona pandemic the clubhouse has a few restrictions. The golf shop is basically closed (you can get a logo ball or tee marker though if you ask) and the clubhouse is littered with one way signs so that people can keep social distance. The locker rooms are very old school and had a very distinct smell. But not in a bad sense. The routing of the golf course is quite unique for an old school links course. Different to common out and back links courses, Western Gailes first 4 holes play in Northern direction, then the following 9 holes play in Southern direction and lastly 5 holes play in Northern direction again. The course eases you into the round with a short par 4 of 278 meters. A tee shot to the left side of the fairway is the play to have a good view of the pin. Otherwise you will face a semi blind approach into the green. The highlight of the front 9 are holes 6 and 7. The tee shot on the par 5 6th hole is semi blind over a sea of rough and heather. Lovely to look at and also exciting to play. You then need to make a wise decision for your second shot. Length wise you could probably reach the green in two shots. But all you see are two dunes and a marker pole. The green is hidden behind the left dune in a bowl. Quite an exciting hole with lots of strategies to play it. The par 3 7th hole is nestled in the dunes and not only pretty, but also quite challenging with multiple hidden bunkers around the green. It reminded me a lot of another world class golf hole, the 15th hole at Portmarnock Golf Club. The quality of golf holes remains high throughout the round. A personal favourite of mine on the back 9 is the par 4 17th hole. A big ridge is bisecting the hole and the fairway runs out at about 250 meters. The best play is to try to place the ball on top of the ridge to get a view of the pin and green. Otherwise you will have a tricky blind shot on your approach. A very interesting hole. I can definitely recommend playing Western Gailes. On my next visit I hope that the pro shop is fully open. The club logo is one of the best in the game of golf.
