Gleneagles (2nd Hole) by Peter Munro
The golf courses at Gleneagles are situated in the heart of the beautiful countryside of Perthshire, nestling amongst the foothills of the Grampian mountains. Although the land was first surveyed before the First World War, the Kings and Queens courses at Gleneagles were opened in 1919. The two courses were designed by one of the great names of golf, James Braid, who was the first man to win five Open Championships. The Kings Course, a par 70 measuring 6471 yards, is around 500 yards longer than the Queens, which is a par 68, and both courses were such an immediate success that a forerunner of the Ryder Cup was staged at Gleneagles as early as 1921. In 1993, the Monarch course, the first in Scotland to be designed by Jack Nicklaus, was also opened for play. The Monarch is the third Championship course at Gleneagles and measures over 7000 yards from the back tees, making it the longest inland course in Scotland. A feature of the Monarchs is the feast of views of the spectacular countryside in which Gleneagles is set and Peter Munro has chosen to depict one of the courses most stunning holes in this, his latest work. The 2nd hole is named Wester Greenwells after the adjoining ruined croft. The most memorable par 5, with a two-tier narrow green, which rises from front to back and which is well protected by fierce bunkers and a small loch.
