Imagine rolling hills, sandy dunes, a stiff breeze blowing off the Ayrshire coast. Before designer courses, before manicured greens and major championships, these lands inspired local Scots to play the game of golf. Beloved since its first formal course was built in 1901, Turnberry’s fairways have been shared by the game’s elite and casual enthusiasts from around the globe. Even the conversion of its links to runways du…ring two world wars could not diminish the desire to play here, a place made for golf, where countless competitions have been waged that shall never be forgotten.
Beautiful in sun, exacting in cold and wind, Turnberry’s three courses are both part of golf’s legacy and part of its future. A round on The Ailsa, The Kintyre or The Arran is the kind of extraordinary experience that changes a player, professional or amateur.
