The Queen’s is a very picturesque moorland course set through the pines on the high ground of the Gleneagles Estate. It may be short, but don’t be fooled. Tricky holes like the split-level 12th, ‘Tinker’s Gill’, test both strategy and skill. The turf is firm and springy as the holes wind, rise and fall through woodland to excellent sheltered greens.

Panellists’ comments: “The prettiest course of all on the Gleneagles Estate”; “A real premium on accurate approach play”
