As Sir Michael Bonallack (recently retired Secretary of the R&A) remarks – “Kingsbarns might well be one of the last true seaside links sites capable of development in Scotland. It is an extraordinary setting”.Yardage 7210 Par 72

Established 1878 but not on the Open circuit until 1923. It is now a regular and popular venue and hosted the 2016 Open. Royal Troon is undoubtedly one of the best links courses in Scotland. It 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. Its many renowned golf holes include ‘the postage stamp’, famous the world over.
