Royal Troon lies at the southern end of that beautiful stretch of Ayrshire coastline where golf was played long before the Troon Golf Club was founded in 1878.
The Club became 'Royal' in its centenary year of 1978 and was the last of the royal clubs to be so honoured. Several famous architects have been associated with the development of the course at it now stands. Willie Fernie, when he was club professional, James Braid and Alistair MacKenzie of Augusta fame among them. This is majestic links land with the back nine holes as demanding as any in championship golf.
Links, 18 holes, 7,150 yards, SSS 75, Par 71
