Royal Troon Golf Club

Craigend Road, TROON, KA10 6EP

Troon was founded in 1878 with just five holes on linksland. In its first decade it grew from five holes to six, then 12, and finally 18 holes. It became Royal Troon in 1978 on its 100th anniversary. Royal Troon's reputation is based on its combination of rough and sandy hills, bunkers, and a severity of finish that has diminished the championship hopes of many. The most successful players have relied on an equal blend of finesse and power. The British Open Championship has been played at Troon eight times - in 1923, 1950, 1962, 1973, 1982, 1989, 1997, and lastly in 2004. It will play host again in 2016. It has the shortest hole on courses hosting the Open. It is recommended that you apply to the course in advance for full visitor information. Photo credits: Kenneth Ferguson.
