Trump Turnberry has revealed its programme of golfing events for 2015 as the resort’s golf season gets underway.
With the Trump Turnberry clubhouse scheduled to open early next month after a multi-million pound refurbishment and only 22 weeks of play remaining on the existing Ailsa course, visitors are being encouraged to play in a range of upcoming events.
In June, a unique opportunity has been offered to play the legendary Ailsa course for the last time as the ‘Turnberry from the Tips’ competition will be the last before the course begins its radical transformation in September.
"It’s a very special summer at the resort this year" - Richard Hall
This popular event among experienced golfers offers the Ailsa course at its toughest, with the pin positions the same as the final round of the 2009 Open Championship.
Richard Hall, director of golf at Trump Turnberry, said: “It’s a very special summer at the resort this year, as we are looking forward to launching our new clubhouse and welcoming all our visitors and members to enjoy our busy events programme.
“In some cases, like Turnberry from the Tips, it could be the last opportunity to play a competition on the Ailsa in its current form, so we expect to see good numbers out enjoying this experience.”
The popular Father’s Day Golf tournament returns on June 21 with families encouraged to play the challenging Kintyre course, with the event open to adults of all ages and juniors from the age of ten.
Junior golfers from across the UK are also invited to enter the Turnberry Junior Open on the Kintyre course on Thursday, July 16, as aspiring future Open champions will gather for the opportunity to tee off on the on the world famous Turnberry links.
There are also junior golf camps available at the Turnberry Performance Academy during selected dates during the summer holidays, priced at just £60 for a four-day school.
In addition to participating, visitors are encouraged to visit the resort as spectators to watch the world’s best women golfers in the Ricoh Women’s British Open, which takes place from July 30 to August 2. The Ailsa course will host the event for the second time in the Championship’s history.
