King Robert The Bruce Golf Course, Turnberry

Turnberry’s newest golf course opened by Eric Trump in June 2017 is named after the King of Scotland, Robert the Bruce. This historical warrior led Scotland to claim its right as an independent country in the Battle of Bannockburn in June 1314 and he was born in Turnberry Castle - the Turnberry Lighthouse now stands amongst the ruins of this medieval castle. Martin Ebert, responsible for the reborn Ailsa, had been commissioned to create what is a stunning sibling to the legendary Ailsa course. This world class golf experience thrills golfers of all abilities. Distinctive bunkering, visually attractive wetland areas and swathes of gorse all adds to the exciting challenges of this great links course. This 18 hole course has a par of 72 and has 5 par 3 holes, a characteristic shared with the new Ailsa Course.
