Turnberry Kintyre Course
The Kintyre Course at Turnberry along with the Turnberry Ailsa course (probably the most picturesque of all the golf courses in Scotland) provides 36 holes of superb championship golf at the Turnberry Resort.
The Turnberry Kintyre Course is a Par 72 measuring 6,853 yards from its championship tees. It was originally constructed in 1909 as the Arran Course.
It was completely redesigned by the respected golf course architect Donald Steel. It was re-opened in 2001 as the Kintyre Course. It is named after the long narrow peninsula that lies beyond the Isle of Arran in the Irish Sea.
Turnberry Kintyre Course is a final qualifying venue for the Open Championship.
The Kintyre Course experiences tremendous changes in elevation and combined with its undulating greens, glorious fairways, magnificent ocean holes and its superb views over to Arran, Kintyre and the famous lighthouse, it is an experience not to be missed.
The Kintyre Course should be included along with the Turnberry Ailsa Course in any itinerary of a Scotland Golf Packages.
