Suggested Itinerary:

Balance of the day at leisure with the possibility, depending on your arrival time, of a warm-up round at Turnberry’s very fine Kintyre Course. Accommodations: Turnberry Resort, Scotland’s original golf resort, which opened in 1906 in a stunning setting overlooking the Firth of Clyde
