The East rarely receives the same criticism as the Queen’s at Gleneagles – cries of little sister – but in many ways it is similar as it is a par 68 with just one three-shotter, measuring under 6,000 yards from the regular tees.

It is also a test of accurate shot-making, where the score needs to be made on the shorter par 4s to counter any mishaps on the six very demanding longer ones.

It would perhaps be hard to recommend playing this in preference to the more celebrated West, even though the fees are roughly half the price, but it is still an excellent sister course. SP

+ Great conditioning and experience; excellent shorter test of golf
– Fewer memorable holes than the West
