Turnberry

Turnberry Resort & Spa is often compared to the U.S. course, Pebble Beach. When the British Open was at Turnberry last year, this comparison was explained in detail. The course is situated on the west coast of Scotland with amazing ocean ciews. Add the world class hotel and resort and it definitely gives Pebble Beach a run for its money. The pictures don't do it justice. We had luxury rooms, meals and spa treatments (for Michele only).

On our day off we played the Culzean Course.
On Day 12 the group rested. We were staying at a world class resort with wonderfully comfy beds and spa access, so we decided to enjoy it. I woke up and promptly scheduled a massage. The massage therapist commented that my back was too tight and I needed at least a massage a week. After my massage Carrie managed to pull herself out of bed and we joined her for lunch in the main lobby with a view of the ocean and the "Ladies having their tea." It is liking looking through a window at a different lifestyles as the women collect dressed up for their lunch. We were definitely out of our element, but still having fun looking in.

One of the coolest things at Turnberry is Culzean Course pitch & putt. No hole is longer than 60 yards and you take a pitching wedge and putter. The "course" was 12 holes, all par 3. Brian managed to finish one under on the pitch and putt. We played a game of Bingo, Bango, Bongo. Players get a point for first on, closest to the hole and first putt in. The round played quickly and we all had a great time.

We ended the "relaxing" day with a wonderful dinner. Max & Tim were our waitier. We had a blast harassing them and getting their input on the menu. The meal was wonderful. Truffle butter knnochi, Steak Diane, and 'Textures of Chocolate.'

Even Lizzy & Simba relaxed at Turnberry
