Quotes:
" The PGA Centenary Course course is much more about a clearedlandscape, bulldozed earthworks, plenty of water, big bunkering and vast greens- all adding up to a corner of Americacarved into a very Scottish setting. When the professionals play at Gleneaglesthey tend to play on this course, and they too find the going far from easy."
