If you mean Glasgow International airport, its about 30 miles, so I guess about £40.

If you mean Glasgow Prestwick (PIK) its about 3 miles, so £5.

By the way, there's a train every 30 minutes from Paisley to Troon. Paisley is about 2 miles from Glasgow airport.

Which course(s) are you playing? Lochgreen and Darley are adjacent to the station. Royal Troon is about 1 mile.

A taxi from the rank outside the aiport into Glasgow city is over £20 and that is only 9 miles. Troon is 3 1/2 times that so I would say at least £65 for the cab all the way there.

Perhaps you could ask the hotel if they can recommend a local firm in Troon that would do it for a set rate.

It would be a waste of money to get a taxi the whole way from Glasgow Airport to Troon. There is a bus from Glasgow Airport to Paisley Gilmour Street station (or you could take a taxi), from where there is a train every 30 minutes to Troon. The train journey time is 30 minutes and single fare is £5.65. See www.scotrail.co.uk

Hi Matthews advice is best and cheapest, as as Ron says a taxi from Glasgow Airport to Troon/Prestwick will be in the region of £65.

Can you just clarify it is Glasgow International and not Glasgow Prestwick.

It is from Glasgow International. Will be in a hurry to get to a tee times so would need the fastest.

Thanks

Where are you arriving from as unless you are arriving form within the UK or Ireland you will have zero chance of making the tee time.

Even if you are arriving from within the UK or Ireland you've got a good chance of missing your tee time

I agree that is tight even by Taxi, although the actual journey should under normal circumstances take no more than 40 mins, what if your flight is late or their are roadworks/accident/heavy traffic?
