Overview
More
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 Open returned to the Ayrshire town for a ninth time in 2016 when the 145th Championship was played at Royal Troon. Golfers the world over vie to play Royal Troon's famous courses and we encourage visitors to experience one of the most demanding Championship courses on the circuit. Visitors are most warmly welcomed at Royal Troon Golf Club from mid-April until mid-October each year on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays.

As expected a course in excellent condition, with a warm welcome from the staff both on course and in the clubhouse

Had the pleasure of playing golf here and of eating lunch in the restaurant. The course was as excellent as was expected and the welcome and the food was first class. The experience could not be faulted. Definitely five star all round.

While it was a 'bucket list' item to play Troon just a few weeks after hosting an Open Championship, I can't say I enjoyed the round. Staff in the clubhouse were stuffy and unfriendly from the time we arrived until the time we ate lunch...More

The hotel and its staff were excellent. The restaurant and all facilities were well worth the special deal that they had on - excellent value.

It was really fun to play the championship course so soon after the Open championship was contested there. The course was in great shape, though some areas between holes were a little rough because of the Open. The Railway hole is as advertised, so don't...More

Enjoyed our outing, the course is tough and the surroundings are beautiful. The restaurant and bar/grill served affordable food. This is not a place for those on a budget. The golf shop merchandise was ridiculously overpriced-I like a souvenir as much as anyone but don't...More

We enjoyed a pre-round mean, simple and filling, then teed off on the Open course with great caddies. Very enjoyable. The staff was extremely pleasant and the facilities were first-rate.

The Open at this venue was amazing. To walk the same course that past legends have played and current stars were playing was a phenomenal experience. On most holes getting a grandstand seat did not involve too much of a queue.
