Trump Turnberry - Galvin Green VIP Experience
Posted at August 25, 2016
Here's what happened when we took one lucky customer to play the reborn Ailsa course at Trump Turnberry with many added extras, all courtesy of our most recent Galvin Green Moment competition on Facebook.
Trump Turnberry - The Prize Winner
Barrie Lewis was the lucky winner of this Galvin Green Moment competition and seized the opportunity to play the newly redeveloped Ailsa golf course at the spectacular Trump Turnberry resort, South Ayrshire. The prize also included £1000 worth of brand new Galvin Green clothing, clubhouse meals before & after, an overnight stay for two and full use of the hotel facilities for Barrie's wife, Diane. It was certainly the most outstanding prize we've ever had to offer!
Choosing an entire new Galvin Green outfit from the AW16 range including Gore waterproofs, windstopper jackets and accessories - Barrie opted for the brand new Plum/Steel Grey colour scheme and wore the Macoy Ventil8 shirt, Nash Ventil8 pants and Donald Insula sweater on the day. It was a fine afternoon on the west coast of Scotland, however, so the Insula certainly never stayed for long and the Gore Tex outerwear definitely wasn't essential this time!
Peter Finch, senior PGA Teaching Pro and YouTube sensation, also came along for the day to film some exciting content for his channel which will be unveiled in the near future. Pete joined Barrie, who currently plays with a handicap of 1, elevating the calibre of the fourball and significantly increasing the standard of golf on show at the Ailsa Championship course. A three under par back nine for Barrie was almost as exquisite as the coastal scenery!

Trump Turnberry - Reborn Ailsa Course
The Ailsa course is simply incredible. The changes which have been made are thoroughly impressive and add something extra special, whilst the maintenance of the course itself is second to none. The views are as picturesque as they come, whilst the halfway station in the iconic lighthouse is another welcome change. A true test of links golf and one which needs to be added to your personal bucket list immediately.
A little note from Barrie Lewis: "I couldn't believe it when I was told I had won this amazing competition. Having seen so much positive feedback about the changes to the course, I was looking forward to seeing them for myself. It is safe to say that the reborn Ailsa more than lived up to expectations and the half way lighthouse is simply stunning! I was already a big fan of Galvin Green clothing as it is very comfortable to wear on the golf course without having to sacrifice style, so I can't thank the guys at Golfposer & Galvin Green enough for the opportunity for myself and my wife, Diane, to enjoy this truly unforgettable experience."
Finally, we would like to say a massive thank you to Tom Burlison of Galvin Green for organising this exclusive and unique event at such a wonderful venue. Thanks also to the staff at Trump Turnberry and to Peter Finch for his valued company - we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
