After seeing all the pictures and videos from Turnberry on Insta & Twitter.
What was the event like at Turnberry ?

In my opinion it was a very good inaugural event with scope to improve next time around.
What could be improved - first day was slightly chaotic with the short game event feeling disorganised; a shotgun start on day 2 with a proper competition would have been better but the club wouldn't allow it.
What worked - more or less everything else. Despite comments on social media some months ago it was very good value. All food was included (2x lunches, 2x breakfasts, 2x dinners) plus drinks with dinner.
The golf courses were in superb condition and the Ailsa is incredible with the recent changes.
The prizes were great as were the goodie bags of TT branded merchandise including shirt, jumper, cap and a dozen balls.
In addition every attendee received a voucher for a Players 5 StaDry stand bag and on day 2 a dozen 2019 prototype Pro V's and the all-important bag tag.
The fitting sessions (clubs and balls) were good with plenty of Titleist fitting staff on hand and every possible combination of shafts and heads.
A nice surprise on day 2 was the arrival of the Tour Truck having finished its work at the Dunhill Links. It was great to chat to the tour staff about clubs and especially to see all of the Tour Camerons and Vokeys.
I was surprised to see so many players without any Titleist equipment. A great opportunity for Titleist to convert them but it detracted slightly (IMO) from the community feel. Talking to a lot of the attendees it seemed many were keen to tick Turnberry off their bucket list and saw the event as a great opportunity.
Overall it was a definite hit, albeit with a few things that could be improved, and great value. I'll certainly take part again next year.
