Although Barrhill itself does not have a golf course there are courses at Turnberry, Girvan, Newton Stewart and Dailly.
Turnberry, which is famous for its championship golf course and luxurious hotel, is situated on the coast roughly 3 miles north of Girvan. The ruined Turnberry castle is also an interesting historical attraction, being the place where Robert the Bruce grew up.
The castle sits right on the coast next to the lighthouse.
|For golfers and golf fans Turnberry is quite simply the ultimate holiday destination. The area’s many beautiful and challenging courses are all on the doorstep of the Turnberry Links Estate. There is something to suit every budget and level of expertise, from the legendary championship courses of Ailsa, Kintyre and Arran, to the large range of extremely affordable local courses, offering a mixture of links, heathland and parkland.|
