Ayrshire is one of best links golf destinations in the world with top links courses including Turnberry, Royal Troon and Western Gailes. The first Open Championship took place at Prestwick Golf Club in 1860 and the towns of Troon and Prestwick provide golfers with a selection of pubs and restaurants to enjoy fine local produce and of course a ‘wee dram’
Lochgreen is part of a collection of courses owned by the Troon Links.
In 1962 When the Open Championship was held at neighboring Royal Troon, Jack Nicklaus qualified for the Open at Lochgreen.
The Lochgreen course is a bit of a monster a Par 74 that varies between traditional Links golf and has a variety of holes that somewhat resemble a classic heathland.
With a good number of golf holes that are reminiscent of Royal Troon, this is a very traditional and fair golf course where the Par 74 will allow higher handicapped golfers the chances of scoring well with a number of very scorable Par 5’s Lochgreen is well worth a visit whilst on a Golf Tour in Ayrshire.
4th Hole | Par 4. The 4th hole is a traditional-looking par four with is drivable for the big hitters at just under 300 yards. With a raised green set up on a ridge and protected by bunkers just short of the putting surface which may distract you from taking the big stick.
