Location highlights

The Ayrshire Coast & Turnberry Resort

The Turnberry Resort is located on the Ayrshire Coast in southwest Scotland. The resort is located right on the coastline; and the small town of Girvan is just a short taxi ride away. Some may have a hard time leaving this world class resort, but others may want to experience the local culture--at Turnberry you can choose. The resort has recently undergone a total renovation; we are sure you will find it a memorable and comfortable stay.

St. Andrews & The Old Course Hotel

St. Andrews

 

The small but lively town of St. Andrews will be your base of operation for the last four nights of your trip. St. Andrews is famous as the "Home of Golf" and for the their University.

The entire town is accessible by foot and you will not run out of shops, restaurants and pubs to explore.

The golf courses are all within easy access of this historic town. You will be within walking distance to The Old Course & The New Course. The Castle Course and Kingsbarns are 10 and 20 minute drives, respectively.

The Old Course Hotel is quite simply "the" place to stay in St. Andrews. Located on the 17th hole of The Old Course and overlooking the Home of Golf--it is the finest hotel in St. Andrews. Our experience has been that there are those who stay at the Old Course Hotel-- and those who wish they would have.
