Played here at beginning of July with much anticipation due to profile of the upgrade on the course. Well it is truly spectacular. Easily the best golfing experience I have had. Club house is classy and carries so much history. Practice facilities are excellent. The staff we met were so welcoming and pleasant. The lighthouse, which acts as a half-way... More

Stopped off for a drink and take in the views of a beautiful looking golf course. The club house had been tastefully decorated and furnished well. No expense spared on the carpeting throughout either, modern. We headed straight to the bar for a quick drink between or short journey. This area was serving food and drinks, with separated areas for... More

Just played Turnberry after major renovations were completed. We played June 7, 2016. The course just reopened June 1st and I will have to say I was impressed. There were a few areas around the bunkers where the sod was just installed but they were not a problem. We had great weather and the views were spectacular. Every hole on... More

The clubhouse is immaculate as is the pro shop and the staff are very helpful. The course has suffered due to the amount of rain that has fallen recently and a large number of bunkers were marked GUR. In some cases there was 2 feet of water in the bunker

My girlfriend and I played (and stayed) here during a driving golf/distillery holiday of Scotland/Ireland in August 2015. It was great to finally play a course I have played many times on Tiger Woods golf on the Playstation! The lighthouse is classical and the little food hut at the turn is lovely for snacks/beverages, and you can charge it to... More

The new Clubhouse to the left of the 18th Green on the Ailsa Course is absolutely superb, the design outside and inside is a triumph. The new Pro Shop on the ground floor is oustanding with excellent customer service. The 5* restaurant upstairs is excellent for a full meal beautifully served or just a coffee in comfortable surroundings with great... More

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.
