The three Troon golf courses of Lochgreen, Darley and Fullarton all start from a traditional clubhouse that offers a warm welcome and good "Scottish Fayre" to all its guests. Lochgreen is the best of the trio of municipal courses on the east side of the popular holiday town of Troon. They each offer an excellent golfing experience and at a fraction of the royal fee charged at their more aristocratic neighbours.

Lochgreen is the longer course, a Par 74 running parallel at points to Royal Troon and used for several years as a qualifier for the Open. Jack Nicklaus shot an 82 here in an Open Qualifier followed by a more appropriate 68 making the cut buy one shot. Although Lochgreen is predominately a links type course, the layout is truly varied, with one stretch - known as the 'Dovecot Section' - providing holes of a more parkland type character.

The course has several holes that are reminiscent of its royal neighbour and one hole in particular - the fifth - would do justice to any championship test. At well over 400 yards the hole runs parallel to the same railway that borders the championship course, with bunkers and gorse providing additional hazards. The par three that follows offers no respite and the golfer who misses the gorse-surrounded green would do well to play a provisional ball.
