Donald Trump reopens £200 million Turnberry

£200 million investment sets Turnberry 
resort apart as an opulent masterpiece

Donald J. Trump officially reopened Trump Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, at last week’s grand opening ceremony, attended by his family and VIP guests. 


“To me, there is nothing more important than supporting my children," said Mr Trump, "and I am honored to be here with my family for the orand opening of the iconic Trump Turnberry. Our vision of creating an absolute masterpiece, that is unrivaled anywhere in the world, has now become a reality. It is incredible to see Turnberry return back to its original grandeur.      
  
"As a businessman, I have created many of the most amazing properties in the world, remaking skylines and employing tens of thousands of people in the process - from Trump Tower on 5th avenue to a city on the Hudson River, Trump Place, and soon the historic Old Post Office Building in on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. 
  
“Trump Turnberry is not only an iconic property, but it is also an important statement about the financial bonds between America and the United Kingdom, and how both our societies together benefit from our strong relations in trade and commerce." 

Set along a richly historic landscape and coupled with the incredible renovation of Turnberry’s legendary Ailsa Championship golf course, the resort now takes its position as one of the most opulent luxury retreats in the world. This £200 million renovation involves every facet of the 800 acre property, from the magnificent remodeling of all guest rooms and suites to the new state-of-the-art grand ballroom, world-class restaurants, the restoration of the iconic Turnberry Lighthouse, the Golf Academy at Trump Turnberry and much more. The grand re-opening of Trump Turnberry marks a new chapter in the hotel’s illustrious 110 year history, which has hosted four of the most exciting championships in all of golf, housed some of the most influential people in modern history, served as the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom through two World Wars and was the birthplace of Robert the Bruce, King and Founder of Scotland, in 1307.  

Leading the renovation alongside his father, Eric Trump commented: “Trump Turnberry is truly a masterpiece, and we have spared no expense as we underwent this truly transformative renovation. Every facet of the property has been improved, from the ballrooms and guest rooms in our spectacular hotel to the legendary championship Ailsa course. There’s no question that Turnberry will continue to top the charts as one of, if not the most, iconic golf resort anywhere on Earth.” 

Turnberry, located along the majestic Ayrshire coastline, consists of 103 state-of-the-art guest rooms, including four magnificent suites (named after Tom Watson, Nick Price, Stewart Cink and Greg Norman, past winners of the prestigious Open Championships hosted at Turnberry). Additionally, included in this iconic renovation is the Grand Tea Lounge & Bar, the world-class Duel in the Sun and 1906 restaurants, as well as the creation of the Donald J. Trump Ballroom, a 500 person grand ballroom set to open in August 2016, which will be the most luxurious meeting facility anywhere in Europe.  

Adding to this substantial list of enhancements is the full restoration of the historic Turnberry Lighthouse, which for over a century has acted as an iconic image of Scotland and beautiful Scottish golf. The Turnberry Lighthouse has been transformed into the finest halfway house in the world, creating an experience that is truly unrivaled. Additionally, the lighthouse will offer the United Kingdom’s most spectacular two-bedroom presidential suite, which will be priced starting from £3,500 per night. Elegant in its d├ęcor and grand in its aura, the Turnberry Lighthouse, overlooking the Firth of Clyde, offers breathtaking views across the Irish Sea, the Isle of Arran, the famous Ailsa Craig and beyond. 

A range of experiences are available for guests, including exhilarating outdoor pursuits within the onsite Turnberry Adventures facility and The Spa at Turnberry. The resort is a convenient 25 miles (20 minutes) from Glasgow Prestwick Airport, 55 miles (one hour) from Glasgow Airport and 100 miles (one hour and thirty minutes) from Edinburgh Airport. 

Overnight accommodation rates for the hotel start from £389, including breakfast, and from £3,500  per night for The Lighthouse Suite.
