Golfers visiting Turnberry can choose from a range of restaurants, bars and lounges introduced as part of the resort’s recent multi-million pound renovation programme. The true favourite amongst enthusiasts is the Duel in the Sun (pictured above) which takes its name from the epic match played at Turnberry by Watson and Nicklaus during the 1977 Open Championship. It draws on the spirit of camaraderie as the pair left the sun-soaked 18th green. The inviting bar offers a fine selection of bottled beers, wines and cocktails. It is the ideal place to enjoy a drink and a light snack. There is also the buzzy and busy Tappie Toorie restaurant, situated in the Clubhouse, offering spectacular views over the opening and closing holes of both the Ailsa and the Kintyre courses.

Turnberry, A Luxury Collection Resort, Scotland

Located in Ayrshire, Scotland Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort first opened in 1906 and quickly established itself as the premier destination for social and sporting events. Converted into an airfield during both world wars, the Ailsa course, designed by Mackenzie Ross, reopened to the public in 1951. The course emerged from acres of runway, foundations of brick huts; hangars and transformer houses left over from the Second World War and has been established as one of the world’s most renowned golf courses. The Spa at Turnberry was added in 1991 and the new Golf Clubhouse June 1993.

The Colin Montgomerie Links Golf Academy, the first of its kind in the world, opened in 2000, offering a unique teaching environment with state-of-the art facilities. This was followed with the opening of the Kintyre course in 2001. With its spectacular setting, challenging golf holes and awe-inspiring views, each course is world renowned. The Onsite Outdoor Activity Centre offers guests a variety of distinguished outdoor activities including, quad biking, horse-riding, fishing, off-road driving and more. The Arran course, a par 3 and 4 course, opened in 2002 as the ideal venue for on-course lessons for novices and offer expert players a warm up round prior to their game on the Ailsa or Kintyre. In 2001 Turnberry greatly expanded its accommodation options by building nine two-bedroom luxury cottages, ideal for couples and families, as well as twelve luxury lodges with either six or eight ensuite bedrooms, adjacent to the hotel with breathtaking views across the golf courses and sea.
