Golf Courses

Ailsa Championship Golf Course
18 holes
Par 70
Home to four Open Championships, the Ailsa has shaped some of the most remarkable moments in the tournament's history and was voted best course in the UK by two leading golf publications. In 1986 Greg Norman won the Open at Turnberry, in 1977 Tom Watson beat Jack Nicklaus by one shot and in 1994 Nick Price was victorious. Stewart Cink conquered the title at an incredible championship in 2009.

This par-70, 7,211-yard championship course is one of golf's storied places. Its first three holes pose a fairly tough opening, particularly when the wind blows from the direction of its namesake, the brooding isle of Ailsa Craig, 11 miles out to sea. From the 4th to the 11th, the coastal scenery is magnificent and the course is demanding. Commanding a passage of stout hitting throughout, the 5th to the 8th holes are framed by sandy hillocks, while the 9th, 10th and 11th are flanked by craggy rocks.
Kintyre Championship Golf Course
18 holes
Par 72
Building on the challenges laid down by the famous old Arran course, the Kintyre is links golf at its exhilarating best. Undulating greens, glorious fairways, magnificent ocean holes, and all with stunning views of Kintyre, Arran, and the famous Turnberry Lighthouse. In 2004, the Kintyre hosted the Open Championship Final Qualifying round.

Getting there

Turnberry Resort is at the heart of a rare land, a fabled land.

This is Scotlands South West, a land bound by sea, marked by history. The land of poets and heroes, like Rabbie Burns and Robert the Bruce. Mile upon mile of coastline and gently rolling hills. Here you can savour the art of whisky making on Arran, experience the thrill of playing a fish in a fast-flowing Kintyre river or wonder at the mystery that is the rocky island of Ailsa Craig. Close at hand lies the magnificent Culzean Castle, where a whole days exploration and discovery await. A little further away you can discover the dynamic, pulsating heart of Glasgow, one of Europes most exciting cities, and beautiful, historic Edinburgh, home to the worlds largest international arts festival.
