HOME OF THE ICONIC AILSA COURSE, HOST OF FOUR OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS
Trump Turnberry has three golf courses, including the Championship Ailsa course, the Championship Kintyre course and the 9 hole Arran course.
The legendary Ailsa course is home to four Open Championships, including the 1977 Duel in the Sun. This iconic course will undergo a substantial renovation at the end of the September, with renowned golf architect Martin Ebert, of Mackenzie & Ebert, being commissioned to oversee the changes. Mackenzie & Ebert have completed a meticulous historic study and modern day review of the Ailsa course, and in close consultation with the R&A, have revealed plans for extensive but sympathetic changes many of which have been sought for decades. For further information on the changes, please visit www.trumpturnberry.com/ailsa-course-changes.
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. The Kintyre course remains open during the Ailsa course closure from 28th September 2015 – 1st June 2016.
With the same difficult elements as Ailsa and Kintyre, the Arran has been designed to acquaint golfers with the typical challenges of links golf.
