1906 · Turnberry Hotel

Age 1

The Turnberry Hotel is a lavish five-star hotel built in 1906 and was designed by James Miller. The idea of the Hotel was mainly intended to attract people from all around the United Kingdom not only for the resort but for the golf courses as well. The Hotel and golf course had its own dedicated railway station, which operated from 1906 to 1942. During World War I, the land was used as an airbase where the Royal Flying Corps trained pilots before sending them into combat. The Hotel was used as a hospital during that time and during World War II. After the wars, the courses were restored, and all progressed as usual in the Hotel. Today the Turnberry Hotel is known as the Trump Turnberry, Donald Trump bought the property in 2014, and continues to host different annual golf events.
