Although it s not a British Open course, Western Gailes is regarded as one of Scotland's very best and is used often as an Open qualifying site. To preserve their seaside course, members have fought a long series of architectural battles to save the course from ever-threatening tides. Western Gailes is generally accepted as being a difficult course and a great test of ones patience, perseverance, and concentration.
7 km north of Troon (A78)

|Despite having just two par fives and three par threes, this is as fine a links course as can be found anywhere in the British Isles. The course is placed between the railroad lines and the sea, making for narrow holes that demand exact tee shots. Especially on the long stretch from the fifth to the thirteenth, right down the coastland, the wind makes Western Gailes not only a trial of skill but something of an endurance test as well.
