Have you got what it takes to play on 2 of Scotland’s most infamous courses? If you think so, these tours will take you for a day out at either Turnberry or Gleneagles’ golf courses for 18 holes followed by lunch in their clubhouses if you can handle it!
Home of four Open Championships, the legendary Ailsa course has hosted some of the most iconic names in golf. Named after the third Marquess of Ailsa, who owned the land on which it was built, this par-71, 6,474-yard championship course is one of golf’s storied places. Reborn in June 2016 at the hands of renowned architect, Martin Ebert, the transformation makes the Ailsa the number one ranked golf course in the UK & Ireland (Golf Monthly, 2019). Set alongside the glorious Ayrshire coastline, with Arran and Ailsa Craig as a stunning backdrop, it is one of the finest golfing destinations in the world.
The beautiful settings and the challenge of the golf course have attracted such top golfers as Johnny Miller, Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, and Lee Trevino, as well as great names from the entertainment and sports worlds including Sean Connery, Burt Lancaster, Bing Crosby, Jackie Stewart, and astronaut Alan Shepard (the only man to hit a golf shot on the moon).
Threading through high ridges on the north and west sides of the estate, the Queen’s golf course offers lovely woodland settings, lochans and ditches as water hazards, as well as many moorland characteristics.
