Turnberry Comes Up Trumps With New Golf Course

Trump Turnberry has benefitted from additional investment resulting in the creation of the magnificent new King Robert the Bruce golf course, further raising its position as the ultimate golf destination.

Eric F. Trump officially opened Trump Turnberry’s newest golf course, the King Robert the Bruce, on 28th June in a Grand Opening Ceremony attended by a selection of VIP guests and members. On the majestic Ayrshire coast, the iconic Turnberry Lighthouse sits atop the ruins of the 13th century castle of the King of Scotland, King Robert the Bruce, who was born on the sacred piece of land in July of 1274 and later confirmed Scotland’s independence in the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. Named after King Robert the Bruce, the new golf course has been designed by world-renowned architect, Martin Ebert, who was also responsible for the highly acclaimed changes to the Championship Ailsa Course. The Ailsa officially reopened in June 2016 and has received rave reviews and the highest of accolades.

Eric F. Trump, Executive Vice President of The Trump Organization, said:
“To know that the King of Scotland, Robert the Bruce, was born here at Turnberry Castle is something we’re incredibly proud of; therefore, it made sense to name this new course after a legendary Scottish Warrior.

“Turnberry itself boasts an incredibly rich history – from the birthplace of King Robert the Bruce, to the building of our iconic lighthouse by the family of famed author Robert Louis Stevenson, in addition to playing an integral role with the Royal Air Force in both World Wars, Trump Turnberry continues to uphold an iconic legacy. The resort has also played host to four unforgettable Open Championships, with winners Tom Watson, Nick Price, Stewart Cink and Greg Norman, and a series of other memorable tournaments, including the Women’s British Open and the Senior Open.

The King Robert the Bruce course will provide visitors of Trump Turnberry with another exceptional golfing experience, complementing the iconic and newly transformed Ailsa Course, at one of the world’s most iconic golf destinations.

One of the world’s finest golf and spa resorts Trump Turnberry further benefitted from a multimillion pound investment in 2016 reaching every corner of the 800 acre property. A range of event opportunities and incentive experiences are available for guests, including exhilarating outdoor pursuits within the onsite Turnberry Adventures facility making Trump Turnberry an ideal choice for corporate golf retreats, incentives, weddings or events.
