Royal Troon Golf Club


This prestigious club came to be in 1878, when twenty-three members from Prestwick went their own way and built this splendid links course. Today it is one of the great Open venues, favoured for its quirky greens and long holes that can make for low scoring or quite the opposite. Troon has the longest and shortest holes of all the Open venues: the 577- yard sixth hole and the 126-yard eighth hole - called 'the Postage Stamp' because of its tiny green. Miss a green at Troon and, quite simply, you drop a shot. Troon is surely one of the world's great golfing shrines.
