Some of the first images of the redesigned holes at Trump Turnberry are beginning to surface – and they sure do look amazing.
The iconic Ailsa Course at the resort was officially closed at the end of September as the changes got underway, with new holes at the sixth, ninth, tenth, 11th and 14th and alterations to all of the others including the reshaping and positioning of bunkers, new tees and green positions.

That stretch from the ninth to 11th holes has been widely anticipated, with these images being uploaded to Twitter of the new tee box at the 11th, showing how the hole has been transformed from one described as ‘photogenic but not particularly testing’, to an outstanding coastal par-3 giving a very different playing and visual experience.

Speaking about the changes when they were first revealed back in April 2015, owner Donald Trump said: “We have created an intricate plan which covers every inch of this magnificent course and will make Trump Turnberry a masterpiece in golf course design providing the most challenging and spectacular golf experiences anywhere in the world.”
