Part of a trio of good quality public courses in Troon, it was at Lochgreen that Jack Nicklaus qualified for his first Open Championship in 1962.

Troon Links, as the collective is known, allows for a golfer of any ability to have a course to suit them. From the short Fullarton, short in length tough in green size. To Darley, a tough course with precision the requirement. Lochgreen sitting in Troon town centre, sits in the middle of the other 2. The course wanders alongside Royal Troon’s sister course Portland. Once at the far side of the course, you come up next to Royal Troon’s famous 11th hole.

Troon is an Open Championship town with courses worthy of that stature.
