  Ailsa Course
 
Turnberry Golf Course
This is a Mackenzie Ross masterpiece, one of the finest places on earth to play golf. The mixture of views over the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran, the ominous presence of Ailsa Craig constantly watchful over a stretch of links land that is second to none.

The Ailsa course has been an Open Championship venue since 1977 having been the host to one of the most dramatic Open showdowns in history. The “Duel in the Sun” saw Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson square off against each other.

There is no finer place to be on a long, hot, lazy summer’s day and when the golfing day is done, what better way to relax than in the Westin Turnberry Resort, a lavish 5 star establishment one of the top 10 best golf resorts in the world.

Kintyre Course

The Kintyre is a challenging test of links golf that runs along the same peninsula as its famous brother the Ailsa Course. Although it does not have the history of the Ailsa, it does have some great golf holes, spectacular views and in many cases asks more of you on driving accuracy and well worth a round. The 8th and 9th holes are two of the most impressive.
