Golf, unlike almost any other sport, allows us mere mortals to get inside the ropes and strut our stuff in the very same arenas as our golfing heroes. Championship venues including those on the Open Championship rota welcome us weekend warriors with open arms and any serious golfer who’s worth their salt will strive to tick a few of these legendary courses off their list before the clubs are put away for good.
Turnberry is one of the most sought after of the lot thanks, not only to its remarkable location and world class design and condition, but to its association with some of the most iconic moments in the sports considerable history.
