A number of Scotland’s courses have hosted the Open Championship, and one of the most celebrated is Royal Troon. Located on the coast of South Ayrshire in the west of the country, it’s just a short drive to Glasgow with its historic buildings and lively nightlife. For many golfing afficionados, a trip to this part of the world simply has to include a round on this superb track.
This is a traditional old links course, with the front nine going out from the west to the east and the back nine doing the opposite. As you might expect from a seaside location, the wind can often dictate the type of shots you need to play. If you’re able to adapt your game to the conditions, the chances are you will have a very successful round.
In 2016, Royal Troon hosted the Open Championship for the ninth time, with the last day featuring an unforgettable battle between Phil Mickelson and the eventual winner Henrik Stenson. Now, with help from Platinum Golf, you and your friends can recreate that iconic tussle with a round on these famous links. Walking in the footsteps of the legends has surely never been more fun.

We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…
Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
We have had a fabulous time here this week so many thanks to you and Stuart for doing a fabulous job organising it all.
