Make your own history at Gleneagles
As the best players from Europe and USA go head to head in Paris, Team USA and their star studded team will be looking to retain the title after a dominant victory on home soil in 2016. But fortune may be on Europe’s side if history has anything to do with it.
Team US hasn’t won on their last five visits to Europe, the last being in 1993 at the Belfry. This will give Team Euro the determination to make sure it stays that way.
The European team’s last victory took place in 2014 in the Perthshire hills on the PGA Centenary Course at the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland. The lively Scottish locals and European fans helped Europe to a convincing third consecutive win and Gleneagles hosted quite the show for golf fans all over the world.

The King’s Course:
“If heaven is anything like this, I hope they save me a tee time,” were the famous words of Lee Trevino describing the King’s Course at Gleneagles. A fine example of ‘Inland Links’, the King’s Course is regarded as one of James Braid’s masterpieces. Standing on the first tee, the sense of anticipation is overwhelming.

The Queen’s Course
Originally a nine-hole layout opened in 1919, the James Braid-designed Queen’s Course was extended to 18-holes in 1925 and is now one of the finest par-68 golf courses in the UK. Threading through high ridges on the north and west sides of The Gleneagles estate, The Queen’s offers a variety of woodland settings, lochs and ditches as water hazards, as well as many heathland characteristics.

The PGA Centenary Course
The PGA Centenary Course has grown in reputation as a modern classic since its official opening in 1993 – its refined and defined fairways and greens having gained global attention as a former Ryder Cup host venue. The par-72 layout was described by designer, Jack Nicklaus, as ‘the finest parcel of land in the world I’ve ever been given to work with’.
