Royal Troon is entrenched in the world's golfing elite, and is a fixture on the Open Championship rotation. The traditional links course is without doubt one of the very best, and is one to check off the list of 'ultimate' golfing venues.
The world's golf courses have produced a collection of special holes that take on extra significance for no other reason than they are amazing to play. Pebble Beach's closing hole and the 12th at Augusta are two examples, and without doubt, the 'Postage Stamp' 8th at Troon is of the same ilk. Taking on the challenge of locating the miniscule green is not only brave, but induces a nervous energy that will live long in the memory, and is the essence of the Royal Troon golf tour experience.
