Another great scene on the Ailsa - teeing off No. 10 with the Turnberry lighthouse as the backdrop.

According to Turnberry's website, the lighthouse is 24 meters tall and one must climb 76 steps to reach the top. The lighthouse has stood at Turnberry Point since 1873, built to warn passing ships away from Bristo Rock. Its light first shone in 1878 and still shines today, going off every 15 seconds.
