TRUMP Turnberry has unveiled enhancements to the iconic Open Championship Ailsa course.

Eric Trump recently visited the resort to view the new changes made by worldrenowned course designer, Martin Ebert.

Celebrated as one of the UK’s most attractive and beloved courses, the Ailsa is recognised as a favourite for both amateur and professional golfers alike, and the Open venue is still famed as the setting for the memorable 1977 Watson/Nicklaus ‘Duel in the Sun’.

Eric Trump said: “The most recent enhancements to the Ailsa, and the wider golf offering at the resort, are a testament to the passion and commitment all of us feel towards fostering Turnberry’s great golf heritage.

“We aim to ensure it remains a true icon of the sport, recognised and admired all over the world.”

Ricky Hall, Director of Golf, says: “It’s crucial here at Trump Turnberry that we continue to evolve and stay at the absolute forefront in the world of golf.

That is why we have put so much care and attention into the recent investment and improvements on the Ailsa. We’ve made strategic enhancements that ensure we stay true to what players love about the course, whilst keeping our edge and offering the very best playing experience possible.”

The changes and investment were analysed and authorised by Eric Trump following a four ball match with the Trump Turnberry golf management team last summer. In addition to the changes on the Ailsa, further improvements were made to the Arran course, the driving range and new paths to the King Robert the Bruce course, all of which advance the playing experience.
