RANGERS have announced an official partnership with luxury South Ayrshire resort Trump Turnberry.

The Gers revealed the news last week as the Scottish Premiership club expressed their delight to expand their family of partners.

The famous Ayrshire landmark will work together with the Ibrox club on numerous events, including the joint hosting of the Light Blues’ annual golf day on the Ailsa Course.

Turnberry will also benefit from the deal, with a range of opportunities such as matchday hospitality and the ability to offer deals to supporters for spa breaks and golf packages.

The famous hotel was built in 1906 and is an official R&A Open venue host.

Stewart Robertson, Rangers’ managing director, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Turnberry as it provides us with an iconic luxury venue with rich heritage for club events, including our hugely popular corporate golf days.

“Turnberry, like Rangers, has a great history and tradition in sport is one of the most iconic Scottish brands, widely recognised around the world.”

Famously, the Ailsa Course hosted the 1977 Open which saw the ‘Duel in the Sun’ playoff between Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson.

Ralph Porciani, the resort’s general manager, said: “Turnberry and Rangers boast rich sporting legacies, each playing a significant role in the history of Scottish sport.

“Therefore, this felt like a natural partnership and an exciting way to kick-off 2020.
