Comment "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 Old 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.
The Portland Course - Although a links course, the Portland is a little more sheltered than the Old Course and, of course, shorter. The holes meander through terrain filled with gorse and broom and has a generous helping of Par 3’s, five in all. This is tempered however, with four Par 5’s, all of which are on the back nine.
The Craigend Course - The Par 3 Course consists of nine holes and the small greens present a series of tricky targets. The course is utilised mainly by Junior Players and a few elderly Members. It provides a perfect setting for relaxed family golf.
Exc from Royal Troon website
The Open The British Open Championship has been played at Royal Troon on eight occasions.
Arthur Havers won in 1923 and he was followed by golfing greats Bobby Locke, Arnold Palmer, Tom Weiskopf, Tom Watson, Mark Calcavecchia, Justin Leonard and Todd Hamilton.
