Set upon the rugged coastline of the West of Scotland, the historic links of Royal Troon is one of golf’s most challenging venues. Deep rough mixed with gorse and broom combined with an unforgiving prevailing north-westerly wind make the course a true test of golfing skill and ability.
The Open returns to Royal Troon for a ninth time in 2016. While minor adjustments have been made to every hole in preparation for the Championship, more significant changes have been made on the 9th, 10th and 15th holes, largely to restore some of their previous characteristics and features.
