Don’t know why I rated it 5 star’s as we weren’t admitted. It’s strictly members only. Suppose if I paid their membership fees I wouldn’t allow non members acsses. Still gets 5 🌟 as it certainly looks the part.Regards Oor Welly ☕🤗

Fantastic golf course it lives up to it’s world class stature. It can be deceiving in nice weather but a gust of wind turns it into one of the hardest courses. Beautiful scenery of Arran and Ailsa Craig.

Club and course are FABULOUS! Beautiful course and while the clubhouse was VERY FORMAL and Maybe a bit stuffy it was still a great golf experience. The Royal Troon Lager was also VERY good!

Lucky enough to get a game as guest of a member. Fabulous clubhouse and lunch followed by an excellent game. Condition of course good and a birdie on The Postage Stamp was the icing on the cake. A bagpiper playing as we walked up the 18th was another bonus.

I had the absolute pleasure of playing Royal Troon on the 2nd May . My son had arranged to play as a celebration of my 60th birthday. The level of customer service at every touch point from the moment we arrived is the best I have ever known . Despite the many players , my son and I were treated as though we were the most important by every member of the team . I had the most memorable day and cannot recommend enough for anyone thinking of playing here . Hoping one day we will get the pleasure of playing again . Thankyou to everyone from pro shop staff , catering staff , starter and the gentlemen on the desk within clubhouse who helped make my 60th celebration at Royal Troon a day to remember.

Having grown up in my golf in a very inclusive atmosphere at my home club and home county I was very surprised by the coldness of the welcome here in the clubhouse, the pro shop staff were really helpful but trying to get a coffee in the clubhouse was impossible and we were, very politely, told to go away. (I was walking with someone playing the course). The Old Course itself was quite mediocre in prep, for the cost money would be better spent at somewhere like Turnberry, Hoylake etc…

Quintessential links course, as you have imagined or witnessed on TV. Very friendly staff, great course, worth the trip to the west coast.

Whilst on a whistle stop tour of Ayr I was lucky enough to get a bird’s eye view of Royal Troon.I’m not a golf fan but I can see why it so special. The views are splendid and the greens awesome.

Wonderful warm welcome from staff and members, rightly proud of their course, all its history and to happy to share with us. Challenging but fair golf course, keep your thinking head on all the way around and you’ll be ok 😉 A must if in the area, or if not in the area, a must anyway!! Get yourself booked in, you won’t be disappointed!🏌️‍♂️

Staff could not have been more friendly or obliging. The club has history in abundance but is humble and welcoming. A shining example of what a true open championship venue should be. The course is kept in magnificent condition and is a true test of skill. Make sure you brush up on your bunker skills before go. I can highly recommend Royal Troon for your enjoyment.

Great course to play on, and scenery around it is spectacular. Highly recommended to all golfers

In their Words…….

Royal Troon Golf Club is honoured to host The 145th Open Championship in July 2016. This will be the ninth occasion The Open has been held at Troon. Considering the Club’s humble beginning in 1878, the journey has been remarkable with great credit due to some forward thinking members during the Club’s early years. Troon Golf Club was awarded Royal status in 1978 to celebrate its Centenary and has since been known as Royal Troon Golf Club.

In the early part of 1970s the Ailsa Room was erected and most recently (2006) the Clubhouse was redeveloped to provide an extended Ailsa Room, an integral Professional Shop, new offices, and in general a fully upgraded and newly furnished Clubhouse. This provides a place of warmth and charm, where the golfer may relax in comfortable surroundings.

Old Course. One of the great links courses in Scotland, the Old Course is a challenging test of golfing ability. With the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. Players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the prevailing north-westerly wind can make the back nine extremely difficult.

Portland Course. The Portland Course, originally designed by the Troon professional William Fernie, winner of the Open Championship in 1883, was opened in 1895 and subsequently redesigned by Dr Alister MacKenzie in the early 1920’s. Although a links course, the Portland is a little more sheltered than the Old Course and, of course, shorter. The holes meander through terrain filled with gorse and broom and has a generous helping of Par 3s, five in all. This is tempered however, with five Par 5s, four of which are on the back nine.

On behalf of the membership and staff it would be a pleasure to welcome you to Royal Troon Golf Club. We are proud of our heritage and traditions which go back to the formation of the Club in 1878. Royal Troon has hosted many major Championships and the fairways have been graced by most famous golfers.

Enjoy your game in the knowledge that you are treading in the footsteps of Sarazen, Locke, Palmer, Nicklaus, and Watson amongst many others. We encourage you to enjoy our excellent bar and dining service and view the numerous photographs, artefacts and golfing memorabilia throughout the Clubhouse.

A visitor to Royal Troon will enjoy the ambience which pervades within and will delight in the many artefacts which decorate the Main Corridor and Reception Lobby.
