Winter Golf Guarantee at Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, Scotland

Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, Scotland, has so much confidence in its unusually mild climate that it is offering a guarantee to golfers staying in the hotel this winter.

Situated just 50 miles from Glasgow on the breathtaking Ayrshire coast, Turnberry basks in warmer air from the northern extension of the Gulf Stream, so rarely sees the snow and prolonged ground frost during the winter months that can hold up play.

It is therefore guaranteeing rounds of golf on the Championship Ailsa and Kintyre courses, for individuals pre-booked prior to any course closure notification, against closure from 1 November 2010 to 31 March 2011. If, due to the weather the course is closed and residents of Turnberry Resort with pre-booked golf are unable to play during their stay, they will receive a complimentary night’s stay with a round on the course originally booked plus an additional round on the Kintyre course.

The legendary Ailsa course hosted the 2009 Open Championship which saw Tom Watson almost re-live Turnberry’s finest Open moment, the famous ‘Duel in the Sun’.

The Ailsa, consistently ranked as the UK and Ireland’s number one course by leading golf publications Golf World and Golf Monthly, underwent a number of enhancements in advance of hosting The 2009 Open.

The course has increased in length to 7,211 yards and the new layout features six new Championship tees and 21 new bunkers.
