Although Turnberry has long been recognised as one of the world’s great golfing experiences, recent course developments have taken it to another level. Our 2019 event was won by Russell Forster from Castlerock Golf Club in Northern Ireland who scored a total of 67 points over the two rounds.
Our competitors really are walking in the footsteps of legends, with Turnberry having staged The Open on several occasions – most memorably the famous 1977 ‘Duel in the Sun’ between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus.
At this event our field will be split over the two courses on both days – those playing the King Robert The Bruce course on Monday will play the Ailsa on Tuesday, and vice versa.
Named after the King of Scotland who was born in Turnberry Castle and who went on to triumph at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, the King Robert the Bruce course is a world class sibling to the legendary Ailsa course with great views, distinctive bunkering and swathes of gorse.
With Arran and Ailsa Craig as spectacular natural backdrops, the Ailsa course is one of the most highly regarded in the world. Following some clever recent developments, this masterpiece has got even better and is without question a golf experience not to be missed.
For those who don’t like too long a journey to the 1st tee, we have teamed up with Turnberry Resort to offer Links Golf Salver competitors discounted room rates when staying over at the on-site hotel. When you book your place in the competition, don’t forget to ask the organisers about our discounted room rates.
Experience warm Scottish hospitality from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave at this iconic landmark on the Ayrshire coastline. All rooms are superbly appointed, and our guests will also have access to the luxurious spa facilities – perfect to help you unwind after a day on the golf course.
Rates for B&B vary depending on room options, email firstname.lastname@example.org for full details.
