Trump Turnberry
The first official record of golf at Trump Turnberry Resort is a letter dated 30th July 1892 from William Murray, a banker in Girvan, to Thomas Smith, the Lord Ailsas factor. The letter was "a proposal to form a golf club for Girvan, Maybole and Kirkoswald on suitable links which could be got at Turnberry."

A public meeting of interest was called by Mr. Murray on Saturday 27th August 1892 to discuss the possibility of forming a Golf Club at Turnberry.

The 6th July 1901 saw the opening of the first course at Turnberry. The links course was an immediate success. Designed by the great Willie Fernie, it was the longest in the west of Scotland, with a total distance of 6248 yards.Turnberry Resort

On Saturday 30th August 1902, a formal ceremony marked Turnberry Golf Club's inaugural gathering, followed by a match between two teams headed by the Club Captain and Vice Captain.

Today, the resort is home to the iconic Ailsa, an Open Championship course four times over, Watson, Norman, and Price have all won the famous Claret Jug here at Turnberry. And, in 2009, Stewart Cink added his name to that exclusive list following his play-off triumph over Tom Watson at the 138th Open - or better known as the British Open to American duffers.
