Gleneagles, The Centenary CourseLocated in the heart of Scotland, Gleneagles opened in 1919 with two courses, The King's Course and the Queen's Course, both designed by James Braid. The third and newest course at the Gleneagles complex was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1993.  The Centenary Course contrasts with its predecessors in style and most obviously in length. It is in fact the longest inland course in Scotland and features narrow doglegged fairways with frequent elevation changes.  The front nine begins toward the southeast toward the glen of eagles and progresses up the Ochil Hills toward the summit and back.  Along the way there are spectacular views of the beautifully lush countryside. The back nine, unusually contains an equal number of par 3's, 4's and 5's. The Centenary Course at Gleneagles bi-annually hosts the PGA cup and will host the 2014 Ryder Cup matches.
