The formation of six‐ and seven‐membered ring ethers from hydroxy‐tethered propargylic esters was efficiently catalyzed by a cationic gold(I) complex with a semihollow‐shaped triethynylphosphane ligand. This gold catalysis showed a tolerance toward the reactions of primary, secondary, and tertiary alcohol substrates with various substitution patterns. A sterically congested 2,2,6,6‐tetraalkyl‐substituted tetrahydropyran derivative as well as 6,6‐ and 7,6‐fused bicyclic diethers were obtained in useful yields. In addition, the gold catalysis was applicable to the reaction of a sulfonamide‐tethered propargylic ester to give a piperidine derivative.
