Gleneagles Hotel launches leisure complex club after £5m refurb

The Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland, has officially launched its new leisure complex club after a £5m, 12-month refurbishment.

Led by the Gleneagles team, the project was overseen by London interior designers Sedley Place.

The adult pool has darker lighting to give a more relaxed feel, while the "leisure" pool is lighter, with a bright, glass faÁ§ade.

The new opening coincides with the 232-room hotel's 90th anniversary, and is also timed ahead of the hotel's hosting of the 2014 Ryder Cup in September.

It is part of an on-going renovation project for the site, including the £3m overhaul of the Dormy Clubhouse and the outdoor cigar and whisky "Blue Bar" in 2011, the £1m investment in the PGA Centenary Course in 2012, and the £1m spent last year on renovating 36 rooms.

Memberships to the club cost from £1,015 per year and include fitness classes as well as access to the spa and leisure facilities. There is also a crèche for junior members. Memberships also offer discounts on food, drink and room rates to the hotel itself and the PGA National Golf Academy.

The historic Gleneagles hotel opened in 1924. One hour's drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow, it has three championship golf courses as well as its spa and bedrooms. This year it will host the 2014 Ryder Cup - the first time the competition has been held in Scotland since 1972.
