Troon Links - Darley
The first Troon Municipal Darley Golf Course dates from about 1910, though the current one, with its original bogey par of 71 opened June 9, 1951.
Troon Links - Darley plays shorter than Lochgreen, meaning a tight round of golf with heather and gorse clogging the edges of several fairways, and an easy enough start makes the tests between the fifth and 15th holes all the more frustrating.
Shoot straight on Troon Links - Darley, as, in addition to the heather and gorse, there's plenty of whin.

Need to be straight off the tee!
Good layout but offline shots are severely punished. Spotter up the fairway required on some holes even at a par 3! Punishing bunkers too!
Lochgreen a more rewarding and forgiving experience.
Score cards / distance markers.
No score cards no distance markers on tees ( COVID 19) an excuse many other courses we played did not have this problem. Would not recommend this course to a stranger.
One of 3 courses that sit together. the 1st and 18th par 5 are stunning. Tricky par 3’s and mixture of tight and wide fairways.
Darley gof course
We have played this course several times on tjis occasion it was not enjoyable. No scorecards, no buggies, because of Covid
Thhis should be stated on website, my friend could only play 9 because of no buggies. And it was useless without a scorecard. Apart from the greens, the course was in poor condition, rubbish on course, people walking with dogs etc
Great wee challenge
Good course great value for money good test of golf nice fast greens played a few times now but this was the first time booking through the app overall excellent day
Course in fantastic condition for time of year,greens slick and fast,and for £16 great value for money.
Course condition was dry but full of rabbit holes. Need to be wary of footing due to amount of rabbit holes on each and every fairway.
Greens great condition along with firmness of fairways.
Good value for money but I’d even say dangerous in places.
We were 2 ladies playing the Darley course on a Saturday morning. The speed of play was slightly slow at times but we managed our round in 3.5 hours . Some very long holes but fairways and greens were in excellent condition. There were also some tricky holes , one par 3 in particular but overall a great experience and will definitely return soon .
This could be amazing!
Such a great layout with very good greens! Come on council sort all the rabbit holes and tees!! This has been the same for the 32 years I have been coming down to play this course! Garbage around the course has improved but I would make the high school come out once a week with a work party and pick up all the rubbish they throw on the course! This is such a great layout and is an amazing track let down by rabbit holes everywhere, rubbish and dog Shi*te. Love the new club house!! Tees are also a mess!! Lots of work rebuilding bunkers so the are trying but all the tees need dug up and replaced. Love this course and so sad to see it in this condition.
Really Enjoyable Day
First time playing the Darley and had a really enjoyable day. Course layout was excellent with a good mix of holes. Well bunkered especially on the back 9 when the wind got up. A few blind tee shots round the turn. 5th hole an excellent driving hole over gorse bushes to a gorse lined fairway. 9th hole a really good par 3. Starters and pro were really welcoming and the members were the freindliest ive ever met in 30 years playing golf. Couldnt reccomend highly enough!!!!
Love the Darley. Always a great test and in good condition.
What a fantastic day . Course immaculate, like a spring day. What condition the course for 28th December. Can't wait to back try the other 2 courses over the winter period.
