The most famous golf course architects have their masterpieces – think MacKenzie’s Augusta National or Ross’ Pinehurst #2 – and they too deeply rewarding experiences. The best way to describe the King’s Course at Gleneagles is to say that is the masterpiece of James Baird, one of the most prolific and accomplished architects of all time. And like other masterpieces, it’ll take your breath away.
