Royal Troon Golf Course
One of the great links courses in Scotland, the Old Course is a challenging test of golfing ability. With the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. Players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the prevailing north-westerly wind can make the back nine extremely difficult.
Choose from two courses:
The Old Course (par-71)
The Portland Course (par-71)
Troon Golf Club was formed on the 16th March 1878, at a Meeting of enthusiasts, in the Portland Arms Hotel in Troon. By 1880 the Club had six holes, and by 1888 these had been extended to eighteen holes. By the time of the 1997 Open Championship the Course stretched to over 7000 yards. The first Clubhouse of a substantial nature was completed in 1886 and additions and alterations over the years have provided the Members with a building of character and considerable charm. In the Centenary Year, 1978, the Club was proud to receive the Royal Accolade and, to date is the most recent Club to be so honoured.
