Royal Troon

Troon is tough – but fair.

Rory McIlroy 

Overview

Welcome to the 10-time host of The Open and countless immortal moments. The Old Course at Royal Troon needs no introduction. This legendary championship cathedral features some of the most renowned holes in the game, including Postage Stamp, Turnberry and The Railway. The out-and-back layout flows inland from the windblown coast through hidden bunkers, sloping dunes and dense gorse. Unmissable.
