The Turnberry Golf Club was rescued from near extinction by golf architect Mackenzie Ross in the 1950s. Since then the Ailsa and Kintyre golf courses have played host too many amateur and professional championships, and rightly so.
18 holes, 71 par, 6376 yards. Links.
The Kintyre Turnberry Golf Course is renowned for offering golf at its best. Consisting of undulating fairways and challenging pot bunkers, this is a tricky round of golf. The elevations, peaks and troughs built into the terrain create beautiful perspectives of the surrounding scenery, as well as adding a stern challenge to your round of golf. However, you are treated to stunning views and relaxing shoreline holes which do offer some respite for the struggling golfer.
The Kintyre Course is situated within the Turberry Golf Club, 15 miles south-west of Ayr and within a 1 hour drive of Glasgow International and Prestwick airports.
