Trump Turnberry Resort

Trump Turnberry Resort

For many golfers, hearing the word Ayrshire brings one name to mind - Turnberry. With two championship-standard 18 hole courses as well as a nine-hole course, you can easily plan a golfing getaway around this resort.

Ailsa Championship Course

The Ailsia holds a special place in the heart of the golfing world. It is one of the most beloved courses in the world. Having hosted The Open four times, the greens are steeped in history. Ever since the historic battle between Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, The Ailsa at Turnberry has been known as the place for dramatic golfing moments.

Martin Ebert redesigned to course in 2016 and gave it a new lease on life. Martin took a great course and made sure that it will long remain one of the world’s best.

King Robert the Bruce Championship Course

Once Martin finished with The Ailsa, he moved on to her sister course - The Kintyre. After a lot of work, the King Robert the Bruce course was born. The course lets you play around the iconic Turnberry lighthouse and enjoy the stunning views over the cliffs.

The course lures you in with opportunities to balance risk and reward. The fairway bunkers, with marram grass and sand, are sprinkled amongst the greenside bunkers, which are deceptively challenging. The course builds wonderfully on the reputation that The Ailsa has built.


If you are new to links golf, then the Arran is the perfect place to brush up your skills. The course has all the features that make the Ailsa such a memorable and enjoyable course. However, as the holes are all par 3 or 4, the course is perfect for beginners and advanced players alike. 

If you’re looking for the perfect golfing break, then there is nothing better starting with the Arran, moving on to King Robert the Bruce, before finally challenging the Ailsa. It’s a golfing experience you’ll never forget.
