The scene of several Open Championships the most memorable being the great Watson v Nicklaus head to head in 1977 – ‘the Duel in the Sun’ and the most recent being 2009 when Tom Watson looked like he might hold the Claret jug again! The magnificent Ailsa course and sister Kintyre course offer breathtaking views over Turnberry Bay and out to the iconic Ailsa Craig.
The Ailsa is set for a major refurbishment at the end of this year in time for summer 2016. Presently rated in the top 20 golf courses in the world, the courses are only available to members and hotel guests. Ailsa 6408yds sss 71 Kintyre 6276yds sss 69http://www.turnberry.co.uk/golf/
