Played the Ailsa Golf Course earlier this morning and can confirm that the recent changes to the golf course are a great success. This course will certainly soon figure in the top 12 golf courses on the list of the best 100 golf courses in the world. There are some truly spectacular holes along the ocean where the scenery is...

This is now a truly world class experience. Having played all over the world and fortunate to be a member of some great clubs in Florida and Scotland I can say that this new course could easily be the best of them all. Nothing has been overlooked from turf condition to design and difficulty. Played from the white, furthest back... More

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
