Great fun playing the Ailsa with my wife on a calm day which we both enjoyed immensely, However our second round was with rain and wind which showed just how difficult the course can be. The staff were good fun which made it all the more enjoyable.

Played Ailsa Championship course with my daughter. Unbelievable experience I will cherish my whole life. Staff was great. Caddies were awesome. Course was phenomenal! Once in a lifetime. New clubhouse was open and beautiful. So much history. Only problem is Trump has stuck his name on EVERYTHING and CHANGED THE LOGO! Seriously?! Come on Donald, quite being so full of... More

Arrived to find the club house still closed which was a pity but not to worry ; helpful staff working in difficult conditions in the old golf academy building. late tee time no pressure, had time on the range with balls supplied but the range limited to 130 yards! due to earthworks. Greens rather slow for a championship course and... More

Playing Royal Turnberry is truly the pure golfing experience. We knew going in the weather was going to be rough, however, this game was the perfect way to knock this off my bucket list by playing "true Scottish golf" 50k winds, rain straight in your face, ahhhh.... Not for the faint of heart.... The views were incomparable, the caddie, excellent........ More

One of the world's famous courses, you play on a links course overlooking Ailsa Craig rock and the famous lighthouse. It is not as difficult a course as St. Andrews although with the gorse either side of the fairway wild shots are punished. And amazingly for such a course we just turned up and walked on and played round with... More

On a chilly march day with a cold wind blowing in from the Atlantic the Ailsa course is a true test of Links golf. The course was in fantastic condition with the fairways firm and the greens fast. Would suggest if you want to play this great course before the Trump changes start in September I would get your booking... More

The Ailsa Course sits next to the Irish Sea and offers beautiful views on almost every hole. The 9th hole, in particular, has an island tee that is surrounded by sea water and a good hit is required to clear both the water and a large hill for any chance of reaching the green in two. I would only place... More

You would be hard pressed to find a more scenic golf course, one of the finest and worthy of its ranking in the top 20 in the world. The course layout and conditioning, lighthouse, Bruce's castle and views of Ailsa Craig with the iconic holes along the coast makes this a truly meorable experience. We secured a twilight tee off...
