Course overview

Troon Golf Club was founded in 1878. The Old Course today is widely accepted as the most demanding of any Course on the Championship rota. Amongst one of the great links courses in Scotland, the Old Course is a challenging test of golfing ability. You will be battling the elements with the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. It is advised that players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the relentless north-westerly wind can make the back nine fairly difficult. Originally designed by the Troon professional William Fernie, winner of the Open Championship in 1883 The Portland Course opened in 1895 with a redesign by Dr Alister MacKenzie in the 1920’s. The Portland is more sheltered than the Old Course and shorter. The holes snake through terrain full of broom and gorse, a perfect route through your game.
