The Trump Turnberry Resort boasts three incredible courses. The par 70, 7,211-yard Championship Ailsa course has been ranked as the no.1 course in the UK. It has hosted four Open Championships and has shaped some of the most remarkable moments in the tournament’s history.
On its stony ridge on the edge of the sea, the 9th hole is Turnberry’s trademark. The landmark lighthouse casts shadows over the 13th century ruins of Bruce’s Castle, the reputed birthplace of Scotland’s hero king Robert the Bruce, and the narrow path to the tee and the drive across the corner of the bay fills players with trepidation.
Host to the 2004 Open Championship Final Qualifying round, the superb par 72 King Robert The Bruce course (formally the Kintyre) is another exhilarating course waiting to test your nerve and skill. The legendary Donald Steel revised the old Arran course, originally constructed in 1909, into a 6,921-yard course that incorporates a set of turbulent swells in elevation.
The signature hole is the 8th. it involves a drive from an elevated tee towards the sea and an unforgettable blind second shot. Utterly hidden by a narrow ridge, the green is set in a cove that seems to merge with the rugged beach beyond.
The 9-hole course is a wonderful mix of par 3s and par 4s and is set against a beautiful backdrop of the timeless Turnberry Lighthouse. The course is characterised by its undulating greens tight tee shots, pot bunkers and thick, Scottish rough and is the perfect place to practice a full range of links techniques and shots.
