I read my own review from four years ago and found that I rated it five balls and the review was certainly complimentary, but I seem to remember thinking that the course was not nearly as exciting as many of the others we played. I have changed my mind. I saw the Gailes Links in a completely different light this time around. First, it was in superb condition as they were preparing the course for the Open qualifier. The greens were the best we played among the eleven courses on our tour. I remember number 5 particularly: A par five with a partly blind approach to bowl-like green. Number 6, an elegant par three, is a perfect follow up. We played that day in a hard rain for nearly the entire round, but the conditions didn't diminish my admiration for the course. I still rate it five balls, but it is a very stong five-ball rating.
