The PGA Centenary Course, created by Jack Nicklaus at the Gleneagles Hotel property, is a modern classic. Even for a champion and acclaimed golf architect like Nicklaus, the PGA Centenary Course was a challenge. It had to be unique enough to test the greatest players.
The tees are graded at each hole in five stages, including a challenging 6,804 yards from the white markers down to 5,263 from the red. Fittingly, the golf course begins by playing southeast toward the glen, sweeping up the Ochil Hills to the summit of the pass below Ben Shee, which joins it to Glendevon.
A feature of the PGA Centenary Course is the feast of views of the spectacular countryside in which Gleneagles is set. Putting on the two-tier second green, golfers can be distracted by the lush panorama of the rich Perthshire straths. Over the next few holes, the rugged Grampians come into view on the right, then distantly purple ahead, Ben Vorlich and the mountains above the Trossa.
