"Locals say if you can see the Ailsa Craig it's about to rain. If you can't , it's raining"
Where drama is played out - The waves crash. A lighthouse stands guard. Between you and the safety of the fairway lies 200 yards of open water and perilous rock.
This is what links golf is all about and why Turnberry hosted four Open Championships.
Home to the iconic Ailsa, an Open Championship course four times over, Turnberry offers one of the world's great golfing experiences.
