Plan Your Trip
Long regarded as one of the finest courses in the world, the Ailsa came to international prominence with the famous "Duel in the Sun" between Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson over the four days of the 1977 Open. The Ailsa has hosted four Open Championships and is consistently rated as one of Britain's top three courses, confirmation that gives it eminence worlwide, with regular rankings within the world's top 20 courses. Set alongside the glorious Ayrshire coastline, with Arran and Ailsa Craig as backdrops, the par-71, 6,474-yard Turnberry Ailsa scenery mesmerizes golfers as they navigate one of the most challenging and stunning golf courses in the world. Perhaps the ninth hole is Turnberry's trademark, the remote tee set on a rocky promontory on the edge of the sea, the drive across the corner of the bay and a glimpse of the site of Bruce's Castle. Golfers can stop at the turn for a "wee dram" or a quick lunch at the Turnberry iconic lighthouse before continuing your round over the last nine.
