Turnberry Resort offers a beauty and history unrivaled by most golf courses. The storied Ailsa Course is ranked as Britain's no. 1 course. Named after the third Marquis of Ailsa who owned the land on which it is situated, the course has hosted countless events over the years, including four Open Championships. Golfers will enjoy rugged coastal scenery while being subjected to the strong breezes, which can definitely affect your game. The ninth hole, the course's signature, is perched atop a stony ridge along the edge of the sea. This hole is as memorable for its scenery as it is for its level of difficulty. There is a lighthouse that casts shadows across the 13th century ruins of Bruce's Castle, the birthplace of Scottish hero, Robert the Bruce. The path leading to the tee is narrow and the hole requires an intimidating drive across the corner of the bay.
