The PGA National Golf Academy
The Academy has a 320 yard double-ended driving range with a capacity for 40 golfers to help focus on the long game, there are undercover pitching bays, a short game pitching area, three short game practice greens with five varied bunkers and two putting greens. The golf practice opportunities are endless.
History repeated itself as the Wee Course was then resurrected mostly on the ground that formed the original course using turf from the Prince's greens. Former Golf Courses and Estate Director, James Kidd, and his staff built the course themselves, recapturing the spirit of George Alexander's design.

"Gleneagles is a wonderful place to play and practise golf. I have been very fortunate growing up just twenty minutes away. I have made good use of the fantastic practise facilities: the range, the short game area and the many practise putting greens, over the years. The professionals and all the other staff at Gleneagles are exceptionally friendly and have been very helpful in furthering my career in golf, by allowing me the use of the facilities whenever I want. The range is great all year round - in the summer, there is a grass tee at the bottom I can use and plenty of space to do an intensity practise session. There are undercover hits bays that have allowed me to keep working on my swing during the cold winters in Scotland. For anyone that has not had the chance to use the practise facilities or play any one of the three wonderful courses, then they should try their best to come to and see what a gem Gleneagles really is."

"I feel very privileged to be able to use the excellent facilities that Gleneagles has to offer. It has everything I could ever ask for - three fantastic golf courses, a good driving range and a first class short game area. I want my game to be as sharp as possible when I go out on tour and I know that Gleneagles offers me the very best when it comes to practicing and testing all areas of my game. The icing on the cake for me is that it's very close to my home, so I really am very lucky"
