Media Release: Elite Ayrshire Business Circle holds successful summer luncheon at Turnberry


THE Elite Ayrshire Business Circle has held a successful summer luncheon for members and guests in the Turnberry Suite at the Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort.

Elite Ayrshire Business Circle executive chair and Frazer Coogans Commercial Solicitors senior partner, Norman Geddes, presided over the event, hosted by Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort’s recently appointed general manager, Jordi Tarrida.

Norman Geddes commented: “I would like to thank Jordi Tarrida and his colleagues for their outstanding hospitality, and congratulate them all for putting on such an excellent event for the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle.

“We were most fortunate with the weather, as a beautiful summer day gave us the opportunity to enjoy pre-lunch drinks on the Turnberry Suite’s large private outdoor terrace offering elevated views over the legendary Ailsa golf course, Irish Sea and island of Ailsa Craig.

“The meal itself was excellent and most enjoyable, and the setting inside the Turnberry Suite itself truly magnificent.

“The event afforded members and guests an enviable networking opportunity, but it was by no means all business, as we were also treated to some musical entertainment by Ayrshire singing sensation Kelly Mathieson, who gave us beautiful renditions of three songs, ‘Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again’, ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ and ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’.

“Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort is one of the icons of Ayrshire’s hospitality and tourism industry, and of the Ayrshire business community as a whole, and as such an appropriate venue for our summer ;uncheon, a major event in the Elite Ayrshire  Business Circle calendar.

“I am sure that all our members and guests will look forward to returning to Turnberry at the earliest possible opportunity.”
