Golf Clubs in Troon
Old Course - The Royal Troon Old Course has held The Open seven times, most recently being Justin Leonard's victory in 1997. It is one of the great links courses in Scotland and 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. 18 holes. Par 71. 7,119 yds. Links.
Portland - The Portland Course, also a links, 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 3's, five in all. This is tempered however, with four par 5's, all of which are on the back nine. 18 holes. Par 70. 6,289 yds. Links.
