Trump Turnberry Resort, Turnberry, Ayrshire
Luxury Five-Star Links Golf Resort. Country Location
There are only a few places worldwide that are synonymous with the game of golf and Turnberry is one of them. From a golfing perspective, Turnberry has witnessed its fair share of dramas over the years with the 1977 Duel in the Sun between Tom Watson & Jack Nicklaus; and the Watson playoff loss to Stuart Cink in 2009 to the forefront of the memory but the hotel itself is quite an experience. The hotel was extensively refurbished in 2009 prior to the Open Championship and there are a variety of rooms to choose from in the hotel, along with a selection of eight-bedroom lodges, which are ideal for groups of golfers. Turnberry has been recently acquired by the Trump organisation, who have completed a range of further improvements to the resort.
Scotland - Ayrshire & Southwest
Great golf is only part of the story when considering what makes the perfect golf trip. Thankfully, the other essential component parts are all found in abundance in Scotland, not least in the sights to see department. Whether scheduling a day off from golf or filling an afternoon after your morning round, there are many options regardless of which region you are visiting. The below is intended as a very general guide to sightseeing in the Ayrshire region.
Playing golf in Ayrshire is likely to see you staying no further south than Turnberry, from where some of the nearby attractions include the impressive ruins of Caerlaverock Castle near Dumfries and Dundrennan Abbey near Kirkcudbright. Only ten minutes from Turnberry is Culzean Castle & Country Park (above) and this is well worth a visit when travelling to or from Turnberry.
And while you are likely to be far too busy playing great golf courses like Turnberry, Royal Troon, Prestwick and Western Gailes, other attractions north of Turnberry in the Troon area include Dundonald Castle & Visitor Centre in Dundonald Village, Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, Souter Johnnies Cottage in Kirkoswald and Dean Castle Country Park in Kilmarnock.
You may not actually stay in Glasgow during your trip but there are plenty of sightseeing options including a visit to 13th century Bothwell Castle about ten miles southeast of Glasgow and the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve. The many museums in or near Glasgow include the impressive Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride, which provides an insight into rural life in Scotland in times past. If you are looking for a distillery in the area, Glengoyne Distillery, about 14 miles north of Glasgow is an excellent option.
