Golf Courses


The Royal Troon Golf Course

Royal Troon Golf Club is a links golf course located in Troon, South Ayrshire, Scotland. The club was founded in 1878, initially with five holes. George Strath was appointed in 1881 as the club's first golf professional. The club was granted its "Royal" accolade in 1978, during its centennial.
Its Old Course is one of the host courses for The Open Championship, one of the major championships on the PGA Tour and European Tour. The Club has hosted the Open eight times, last in 2004, won by Todd Hamilton in a 4-hole playoff against Ernie Els. It is scheduled to host again in 2016.
Royal Troon is home to both the longest and shortest holes in Open Championship golf. The par-3 8th hole ("Postage Stamp") measures a short 123 yards (112 m) and is regarded as one of the top holes in the world, while the par-5 6th ("Turnberry") extends to 601 yards (550 m).
Courses

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.



Course Information

Ladies (Red) Course: Lenght - 6108 yds (5585m) PAR - 75 S.S.S. - 76
Yellow Course: Lenght - 6170 yds (5641m) PAR - 71 S.S.S. - 71
White Course: Lenght - 6632 yds (6064m) PAR - 71 S.S.S. - 73
Championship (Blue) Course: Lenght 7208 yds (6591m) PAR - 71 S.S.S. - 75

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 1920s. 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.

Course Information

Ladies (Red) Course: Lenght - 5811 yds (5314m) PAR - 75 S.S.S. - 75
Yellow Course: Lenght - 6162 yds (5635m) PAR - 72 S.S.S. - 70
White Course: Lenght - 6349 yds (5806m) PAR - 72 S.S.S. - 71

Western Gailes Golf Course

Western Gailes Golf Club, founded in 1897, is situated on the Ayrshire coast of Scotland where many of the finest Scottish golf links are located and is only 4 miles from Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.
It is recognised as one of the finest and true links courses in Scotland measuring 6899 yards from the championship tees. The course has played host to the Curtis Cup, PGA Championship, Seniors and prestigious Scottish Amateur Championship. It is also one of the final qualifying courses when The Open is played at Turnberry or Royal Troon. The clubhouse, with its view of the hills of Arran and the sharp outline of Ailsa Craig standing out from the shimmering sea, gives an instant picture of the delights Western provides and the comforts it affords to all who visit us. The reputation of Western Gailes as one of the game's finest and more exacting courses has spread world wide, as evidenced by its numerous visitors.

Dundonald Links Golf Course

In February 2003, Loch Lomond Golf Club acquired a new links course near the legendary town of Troon in Ayrshire. It was intended to not only enhance the Clubs prominence within international circles but also to provide its esteemed international membership with a challenging alternative links venue.
Designed by the highly acclaimed golf course architect Kyle Phillips, also renowned in the UK for Kingsbarns and The Grove, the 7,100-yard, par 72 course was inspired by the timeless architecture of the great Ayrshire links courses of Royal Troon, Prestwick and Western Gailes, all connected by the historic rail line.
At the time of purchase, the course was known as Southern Gailes and it has since been renamed Dundonald Links to reflect the history of the site.
Dundonald means Fort Donald and there is a hill near the course upon which fortifications have been located dating back to the period 500 through 200 B.C. Three castles succeeded the original structures and in the early 1900s there was an old golf course named Dundonald on the site of the new course. It was converted to military use during World War II, at which time it was known as Dundonald Camp, and was used to rehearse the D Day landings.
Dundonald Links has become recognised as one of Europes must play links courses. It has played host to a number of professional and amateur tournaments, including pre-qualifying for the European Tour and the Senior British Open Championship. The course is open to visitor play and Membership opportunities are available.
