Turnberry 2 Day 24/25 March

South Ayrshire welcomed the Golf Pairs Tour as Trump Turnberry played host to 114 eager competitors, all aspiring to bask in the glory of this renowned Open Championship venue. Day one presented our golfers with the challenge of the King Robert The Bruce course. Designed by Martin Ebert, this course stands as a splendid testament to true links golf, neighboring the famed Ailsa course (the venue for day 2), which witnessed the legendary 1977 'Duel in the Sun' between Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson. Our golfers engaged in their own 'duel in the sun' on the King Robert The Bruce course on Sunday. Regrettably, Monday brought heavy rain, leading to the unfortunate cancellation of day 2.
