Golf In Scotland

Scotland is the Home of Golf, and Ayrshire is the Birthplace of The Open.
Ayrshire is blessed with many golf courses that can accommodate all levels and of course price range.

In the next series of blogs we are going to take a look at the golf course options in the town of Troon. Troon of course is most famous for hosting many Opens at the world famous links of Royal Troon Golf club and will again see this major return this summer to its famous turf.

Royal Troon is a true championship test and we spotlight some key holes ahead of this years Open.
The Postage Stamp is one of the most talked about par 3's in world golf and measuring just 123 yards you would think it was simple, well think again from an elevated tee position you hit down towards a very small and narrow green heavily guarded by Bunkers including the Coffin bunker.
Make your par's around Royal Troon and you are well on your way to a good score.

The second hole that will prove a real test this July will be the 11th named The Railway.
this hole runs alongside the railway line to Glasgow and is stroke index 1 on the scorecard. With the railway to the right, thick gorse to the left and a long carry over even more gorse, this is probably the toughest tee shot on the course. Down the left side with a gentle fade is ideal but it really is a fingers crossed tee shot.

Join us in our next blog where we will be looking at Troon Links, a collection of public courses just a par 5 from Royal Troon which include the 4th toughest course in Scotland.
