Troon Links - Lochgreen
After or before chowing down on the clubhouse's "Scottish Fayre," take on Troon Links Lochgreen Course.
The Lochgreen Course at Troon Links is widely regarded as the best of the municipal golf courses in Troon, though all offer a great round of golf at prices hard to beat in Scotland.
Troon Links Lochgreen Course is facility's largest, a par-74 that parallels in parts Royal Troon Golf Club and has served as a qualifier for the Open. Jack Nicklaus, for one example, once shot an 82 on the golf course and needed to follow it up with a 68 to make the cut by one shot.

Booked Lochgreen at the last minute, weather was decent so fancied a game. Big greens and fairways in play (no hitting from mats or in first cut of ruff which seems to be the norm even on links courses these days). Played with two other Golf Now bookers and enjoyed my day.
Course was in good condition and well priced .
We played on a wet and windy night and was the only people out on the course so the Pro had gone home but cards were in the clubhouse .
Fairly playable as my friend Swampy still had 38 points
Worth a visit in my opinion
Great course but very slow players
Course was fantastic, greens were in amazing condition. The reception staff were helpful and very cheerful. I played just myself but soon caught up with groups of 3 and 4 balls which is fair enough but it ended up causing hold ups with all groups at a lot of points due to very slow play with a few groups which is the only let down but not the fault of the course. Highly recommended course.
Travelled from Glasgow due to better weather and course conditions in Troon and we were not disappointed! Great condition, all tees on and all greens were on and perfect!
Good round spoilt by snails
Always enjoy our visits to Troon and knew the time would be tight teeing off at 12pm.
However the pace of play was horrendously slow and we found the cause as we were on the 5th tee. There was a ladies 3 ball on the 8th that had lost 2 holes on the game in front and was holding up everyone behind.
Had to play the last 2 holes in the dark and eventually got in at half 4.
Would still recommend the course and will be back despite the slow play.
Wonderful layout and superb condition Flor November. Four hour round therefore had we played at time of booking we would not have played full round
Has it all
Links, parkland, fast greens, fun holes, undulations, the lot. Its a belter.
Staff in Troon are great too. Recommend this to anyone!
Decent muni course
Muni courses in Troon are much cheaper than the high priced ones in The area. Have played Darley before which was tight but lots of fun. Lochgreen is maybe the most wide open course I have ever played. Pretty hard to lose a ball but some holes were long and greens surrounded by bunkers which toughened it up a bit. Pace of play was good and Course was in good shape. Reception was average; fellow who checked us in not very friendly and welcoming. The person in pro shop was friendly.
Great bar the 5 ball in front
Staff are very friendly and easy to deal with. Great facilities if you need to use them.
Course is always in excellent condition. Played in a pretty windy day and still enjoyed it so that says it all.
Greens are brilliant, courses well looked after and always clean.
Could do with someone out checking pace of play etc as there was a group making up a 5-ball (yep a 5 ball!!!!!) A few groups in front of us and it caused a 5/10minute wait on every tee pretty much.
Wont stop me playing again, but this nonsense needs better management as it really affected the round
Great day out
I have played Lochgreen a few times before and always enjoy the challenge.The day started a bit misty but cleared after a few holes to clear blue skies.The course was in great condition and my golf was not bad either.All in had a good day and enjoyed some refreshments in the newly refubished club house
Course plays very long. Conditions not the best. Scruffy and lots of divots. Greens are slow. Open, so no lost balls.
Darley is in better shape and more fun to play.
Didn't use clubhouse so I can't say what the food and beverage situation is.
Troon Municipal - Loch Green
Love the three courses here at Troon, however had chosen not to play this year as £36 a round for a municipal course is a bit steep.
Luckily TeeTimes sent me money off offer and I booked up for me and a friend for a round which equated to £18 each.
Facilities have recently been improved at the clubhouse, with a beer garden added for good measure.
Course was in great nick and greens were immaculate.
Only slight gripe was the twoball behind us who seemed to be in a race and basically stood on thr teeoff with us, we had a twoball in front of us so couldn't go any faster, we took 3 hours 14mins for our round which we thought was decent pace.
Hopefully we will be back if prices drop a touch, £28 would be fair enough
Wet but greens were good.
Unfortunately we were behind some inconsiderate golfers from Glasgow who could not have held down a handicap of 28. There etiquette on the course was extremely poor in fact quite sure they knew nothing about etiquette. They would have been better placed playing the Fullerton course which would not have been as tough as Lochgreen.
Unfortunately councils too quick to take people's money and not question their golfing ability.
Played the course today. First class condition the fairways and greens were very firm considering the cold and wet conditions of late. Will be back in the coming weeks
Fabulous day at Lochgreen! The course was in great condition for this time of year and the sun shone - and it was 12 degrees!! Staff were excellent! Great value for money!
I played this course some years ago and was keen to go back and see how it was. I was not disappointed. The coures is beautifully crafted on the natural contours of the land and although the greens were slow (I played at night) they were in perfect condition and very true.
A very enjoyable course.
