Played golf at Turnberry and decided to book a table for dinner afterwards. This truly is a 5* dining experience. Food and service fantastic. Would recommend the club steak. 2 huge rib eye steaks cooked on the bone shared between four. Awesome!!!!

Whether you go for a coffee, or for lunch, the attention you receive is simply superb. From the greeting at the door, through to the service it is fantastic. And the view of Ailsa Craig are just stunning.

We spent 3 nights at the Turnberry Resort, and being a child of the 70s, I could not resist trying out my own Duel in the Sun at Turnberry, the site of so many British Open moments. Turnberry concierge staff took care of all the details well beforehand. My tee-off time was early, and drew no additional participants, to my... More

I didn't make advance tee time reservations before we got to Turnberry due to some scheduling uncertainties but that didn't wind up being an issue. We got on at a 5pm sunset rate (125 pounds give or take) and easily played 18 before dark. The Ailsa course is challenging due to the long rough and relatively narrow fairways -- especially... More

This gold course is gorgeous! It is well maintained and lovely! We walked down the middle of the course to the lighthouse where King Robert the Bruce's Caste once stood. It is ruins now but one can imagine how lovely it must have been.

Now I know why Trump is blowing up the golf course and starting over. When I watched the 2009 British Open, I thought the course looked unbelievable on TV and put this place on my list of must plays. I just got to play it and it was just okay. I played all the other British Open courses and this... More

It's old but eloquent. Visions of yesteryear are everywhere. The elevators are ancient, and they've really tried to upgrade everything you see, but it's scheduled for a complete renovation this winter and I can't wait to see it after the redo.

We travelled to watch the Women's Open at Turnberry and then played the Ailsa course the day after. It was stunning. Brilliant. Awesome. How many adjectives can you use? The design of the course, its condition, the breathtaking views are all truly magnificent. I've played most of the Open venues but this is simply beyond compare. It costs a bomb... More
