Founded in 1878 by a few enthusiasts Troon Golf Club soon outgrew its purely local reputation. The Old Course today presents a stern golfing examination and in particular the inward half of Royal Troon is widely accepted as the most demanding of any Course on the Championship rota. The Open will return to the Ayrshire coast in 2016 when the 145th Championship is played at Royal Troon. Golfers the world over vie to play Royal Troon's famous courses and we encourage visitors to experience one of the most demanding Championship courses on the circuit. Visitors are most warmly welcomed at Royal Troon Golf Club from mid-April until mid-October each year on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays.

On the banks of the River Clyde and views of the Scottish islands, this links course is awesome. If the weather is good, this course is an unforgettable experience. In the summer months recommend you wear anti midget spray as they can really nip. The golf staff and facilities are excellent. You could extend your visit by staying in the... More

Royal Troon is all it should be. Got to play with my oldest daughter (who thoroughly whooped me). Played Old Course and did well the first many holes then the wind started doing horrible things to my slice. For such a benign beautiful course it can eat your lunch! I felt deflated when I put two o.b. on railway until... More

Beautiful Golf Course. Plenty of history and tradition. Windy and difficult. Personnel at the Golf Shop, the Starter and the Caddies are very friendly. Makes you have a wonderful golf experience.

This is one of my favorite courses of all times. We played it on a cold, windy day with a little rain at times. We had a local caddie that made a world of difference. I don't think we could have played the course without his help. I actually had three birdies including the famous Postage Stamp hole. Who wouldn't... More

Well I can strike another thing off my golfing bucket list. One of the top golf experiences I've had yet. Awesome links course, front to back, all aspects of the game came into play, wind, rain, deep pot bunkers and speedy greens. Make sure you adapt to the conditions, hood over your club if it's windy, otherwise you'll find yourself... More

On a day trip to Troon we decided to pop in to the club house as my husband is a keen golfer and wanted to see whether he would like to play this course in the future. We had our 2 children with us and were dressed in casual attire so I can understand that it was not possible to... More

A real links golf experience in Ayrshire, the course is fantastic and is set up how golf should be played, clubhouse is impressive and all staff on duty were professional and attentive. I will return here the next time I am home In Scotland. First class

We were fortunate enough to get a taste of this historic links on our tour. Probably had the most dreadful weather of the entire trip which spoilt the fun, but still a wonderful golfing experience. Host venue of the 2016 Open, I can't wait to see the pros battle it out on this challenging lay out. The postage stamp is... More
