Undulating greens, ocean-hugging holes, challenging fairways and a fresh Ayrshire breeze; this is links golf at Turnberry. Discover one of the most magnificent golf destinations in Scotland

A Cherished Classic – Golf at Turnberry Resort, Scotland

Imagine rolling hills, sandy dunes, a stiff breeze blowing off the Ayrshire coast. Before designer courses, before manicured greens and major championships, these lands inspired local Scots to play the game of golf. Beloved since its first formal course was built in 1901, Turnberry’s fairways have been shared by the game’s elite and casual enthusiasts from around the globe. Even the conversion of its links to runways during two world wars could not diminish the desire to play here, a place made for golf, where countless competitions have been waged that shall never be forgotten.

Beautiful in sun, exacting in cold and wind, Trump Turnberry Resort’s three courses are both part of golf’s legacy and part of its future. A round on The Ailsa, The Kintyre or The Arran is the kind of extraordinary experience that changes a player, professional or amateur.

The draw of that experience will keep golfers returning here forever.

Day 3

Full Scottish Breakfast.

Play Royal Troon Golf Links

Famous 8th Hole – The Postage Stamp.

Royal Troon Golf Club is a links golf course located in Troon, South Ayrshire, Scotland. The club was founded 137 years ago in 1878, initially with five holes. George Strath was appointed in 1881 as the club’s first golf professional.[1] The club was granted its “Royal” accolade in 1978, during its centennial.
Its Old Course is one of the host courses for The Open Championship, one of the major championships on the PGA Tour and European Tour. The Club has hosted the Open eight times, last in 2004, won by Todd Hamilton in a 4-hole playoff against Ernie Els. It is scheduled to host again in 2016.

Past Open champions at Royal Troon include Justin Leonard, Mark Calcavecchia, Tom Watson, Tom Weiskopf, Arnold Palmer, Bobby Locke, and Arthur Havers. The last six Opens at Troon have been won by Americans.

Royal Troon is home to both the longest and shortest holes in Open Championship golf. The par-3 8th hole (“Postage Stamp”) measures a short 123 yards (112 m) and is regarded as one of the top holes in the world, while the par-5 6th (“Turnberry”) extends to 601 yards (550 m).

Video of Carnoustie

The Championship Course has hosted seven Open Championships, one Ladies Open and one Seniors Open making it one of the very few to have done so in the UK. It is one of the three courses used for the annual Dunhill Links, the others being Kingsbarns and the Old Course in St Andrews. The Open Championship will return to the Championship Course in 2018. Generally regarded as the toughest of the Open venues for those who understand the game a little more will know it is probably the fairest too. Without doubt though Carnoustie Championship Course does have the toughest closing stretch of holes anywhere and those finishing the final four holes with no more than a bogey should be suitably content with their play.

Carnoustie is decribed as ‘ A monster ” and is known as the most difficult golf links in the world and affectionately named “Carnastie”.

Later Open winners at Carnoustie include Henry Cotton of England in 1937, Ben Hogan of the USA in 1953, Gary Player of South Africa in 1968, Tom Watson of the USA in 1975, Paul Lawrie of Scotland in 1999 and Pádraig Harrington of Ireland in 2007. The last three championships were all won in playoffs.

Kingsbarns Golf Links located just 7 miles from the “home of golf” is part of the long heritage of links golf centred around St Andrews. Golf has been played on the present site since 1793 when the Kingsbarns Golf Society was established as the 11th earliest golf society in the world. The Society was later reconstituted as The Kingsbarns Golf Club which remains active to this day. Kyle Phillips designed the course in its present championship layout which was opened in 2000.

Kingsbarns is proud to join The Old Course at St Andrews and Carnoustie Golf Links as a co-host venue of the annual European tour’s prestigious Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The Old Course at St Andrews is considered by many to be the “home of golf” because the sport was first played on the Links at St Andrews in the early 15th century. The Old Course is also home of The Road Hole, the par-4 17th, one of the world’s most famous golf holes.
While winning the Open Championship is a crowning achievement for any golfer, a win at St Andrews is considered particularly important due to the course’s long tradition. Past winners at St Andrews include Tiger Woods (twice), John Daly, Zach Johnson (first Monday finish since 1988), Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus (twice), Tony Lema, Kel Nagle, Bobby Locke, Peter Thomson, Sam Snead, Dick Burton, Denny Shute, Bobby Jones, Jock Hutchison, James Braid (twice), John Henry Taylor (twice), Hugh Kirkaldy, Jack Burns, Bob Martin (twice), Jamie Anderson, Tom Kidd, Lorena Ochoa, Louis Oosthuizen, and most recently Stacy Lewis at the 2013 Women’s British Open.
