Played this magnificent course as part of the Gailes experience in 2012. Dundonald and Glasgow Gailes are obviously excellent courses but WG is in another league. I’m from Australia and I would like to play every links course in the world. Luckily I have an English wife so for the past 10 years my annual trip has been to the UK therefore most years I get to pick and choose a place to stay for a week. When I chose Troon I was not interested in the Royal course, leave that till later, but did play these 3 along with the municipal courses (Darley a cracker) and Barassie. WG was simply stunning. The starter let me know in no uncertain terms it was far superior to GG and DD and I think everybody would have to agree. I won’t bore you with hole by hole descriptions, all you need to know is it is a course that is simply fantastic. Of the 33 links I have played so far (using True Links’ 246 as THE list) this is #2 behind the Old course. I can't believe there are, according to this website, 20 odd links courses better than this. I can't wait!
