A SCOTTISH golf resort bought by billionaire Donald Trump has reopened following a £200 million restoration.

Trump Turnberry’s Ailsa golf course – which has played host to The Open Championship four times – has been renovated.

Trump, who is currently in the running to be nominee for the Republican Party in the 2016 US presidential elections, purchased the property in 2014.

The main hotel building, which has been under construction since September last year, has been updated with the remodelling of all 103 guest rooms, bars and restaurants.

The iconic Turnberry Lighthouse has been fully restored and converted into a £3,500-per-night two-bedroom presidential suite offering “breathtaking” views and a “uniquely exclusive” guest experience.

It is the second Scottish golf resort the tycoon has launched following the opening of Trump International Golf Links, Scotland, in Aberdeenshire in 2012.

The property developer, whose mother Mary MacLeod was born on Stornoway, has always maintained Scotland was his first choice for a golf resort due to his family ties and the recognition of the country as the home of golf.

Ralph Porciani, Trump Turnberry manager, said: “We have always known that the newly-renovated Trump Turnberry would be among the finest hotels anywhere in the world. The Trump

Organisation has spared no expense – it is a genuine masterpiece.

“Guests can expect an opulent and very private experience at Trump Turnberry, which is hidden away in a richly historic landscape with breathtaking views. No request will be too great and no detail too small.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at the property on June 24.
