Trump Turnberry - King Robert the Bruce Course
The Trump Turnberry Hotel offers two golf courses right on the coast and with a well-known lighthouse as part of the view All levels of golfer can take on the hotel's two golf courses.
The King Robert the Bruce Course at the Trump Turnberry Hotel (formerly known as Trump Turnberry Resort - Kintyre Course) builds upon the many tests that were designed into the well-known old Arran course, and offers exhilarating links golf, with greens that undulate, fairways that provide a pretty trip to them, and beautiful holes.
Take in the view atop Bain's Hill, for example, after a quick climb from the seventh green, and marvel at how the added elevation extend the vista in every direction, then take your shot - the golfers behind you are waiting. Savor that eighth hole, though: it's the golf course's signature, with its drive from the elevated tee almost to the sea and a memorable second shot blind to a green in a gully near the rocks. Follow this with a thrill-packed coastal second shot on the ninth hole.

Great changes to Kintyre course
Played a two ball here on Friday.The changes made are certainly for the better.I didn’t play well,nothing to do with course though.Greens were excellent especially for January.Fairways we’re pretty dry although we had the odd mud ball,we just played preferred lies to help with this.Only reason course condition got 4 stars and not 5 was down to a few holes were off forward tees with some bunkers under repair. First hole only played 380 yards instead of being closer to 500 yds par 5.Still a great day and look forward to arranging a game on full course in the summer..
Fantastic setting and superb facilities
For winter golf in Scotland this is hard to beat. The course is in great condition for January with superb greens and no need for fairway mats.
The course layout has improved massively with the recent changes, particularly the new 9th hole and overall is an excellent test for your game.
Ordinarily I would rate the course as 5 star excellent but on this occasion would drop half a star simply because many of the bunkers were classed as GUR
King Robert the Bruce
Excellent course in great condition. Played at the end of December and the greens were lovely. One not to be missed. Views from the 8th are amazing.
As good as the Ailsa....?
Beautiful course, and dare I say it, better than the Ailsa. Less forgiving, and watch out for the gorse. But beautiful layout, and throughly challenging and rewarding course.
Get a round in.
Fantastic course although I would recommend getting a bit of practice before you visit!! Breathtaking views fantastic greens considering we visited in October. Hard course but a great day out, will call again.
King Robert the Bruce
Played the King Robert the Bruce after a terrible few days of heavy rain but the course held up very well as expected being a quality links. Greens were fast and the fairways were firm and tight. Overall a lovely days Golf with good company and spectacular West of Scotland vista's.....
Course is excellent. Value for money compared to the Ailsa you really cannot complain too much. I am not saying it is cheap by any means but for what you and comparison to Ailsa. At times you really cannot tell the difference. Unsurprisingly, it is by far the most ‘American Style’ golf resort I have played in Scotland. If you are looking for authentic scottish links the resort my not be the place. But the course is fantastic.
A lovely course
first time we have played the course since the Trump alterations. Very pleasantly surprised. Holes 8 to 11 have been changed for the better.will be back to play again
First time playing course since layout change, but still love this course!
Considering the rain over last 48 hours the course is great condition .
The staff in both pro shop and academy couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful.
Our 4 ball had really enjoyable round,
To be able to play golf on January 4th on a amazing coarse full greens full fairways was amazing the views and some of the holes where a pleasure to play
King Robert the Bruce course
From the moment we arrived we were given a warm and friendly welcome.
We were given balls for the range prior to our round.
Welcomed by the starter,who talked us through the changes to the course.
All in all a great experience from start to finish.
