A £200 million sum is a hefty investment, but a lot has gone a very long way during Trump Turnberry’s serious refurbishment programme, covering every inch of the 800-acre venue. Each guest room and suite has been re-modelled, and the Grand Tea Lounge & Bar, the Duel in the Sun and 1906 restaurants have also been given a facelift.
The new Donald J Trump grand ballroom, with space for 550 guests, has been constructed, while the historic 100-year-old lighthouse was treated to a full restoration, including the addition of a two-bedroom presidential suite (with stays priced at over £3,500 per night), all of which was unveiled in June.
Also benefitting from the makeover was the Ailsa Championship golf course, which has a worldwide reputation as one of the finest golf courses, hosting four Open Championships in its 110-year history.
“When we bought the property in 2014, we knew that renovating Trump Turnberry would ensure it would be among the finest resorts anywhere in the world,” says Eric Trump, who led the works alongside his father. “We have spared no expense and could not be more proud of the end result – Turnberry now shines brighter than ever before.”
