Darley Golf Course Troon


If you are the type of golfer who loves a good challenge
then Darley is the perfect course for you


Darley is a true links as in the wildcat variety. It has feline ferocity and abounds with the famous Scottish hazards of heather, gorse and whin. Although not as long as Lochgreen, it is a true test of golf, demanding the most accurate of drives.

The original Darley course dates from 1911 and was re-opened after the war in it's current form in 1946. The course was recently rated as the fourth most difficult course in Scotland to play to your handicap to. If you score well here then it is a true accomplishment and you have played very well indeed.

Hole 5

Best hole on the course, a daunting tee shot over a valley of gorse would be best placed down the right of the fairway to open up the green, protected by trees and more gorse.

There's a hidden bunker just off the right hand side of the fairway to catch any tee shots trying to go a bit too far to the right. An accurate second is then called for to hit a narrow  target well protected by bunkers at the front.

Hole 7

Another challenging tee shot especially from the medal where  you can't see the fairway! A good tee shot over the gorse favouring the left side of the fairway opens up a small green protected by front bunkers.

This hole could play one of the easiest or one of the hardest on the course dependant on the direction of the wind!

Hole 11

Another tough par 4 lined with gorse bushes requires both distance and accuracy. Hitting the fairway is vital to give yourself a chance of hitting this plateau green.

Gorse bushes run all the way down the left hand side and on the right a drop off into a valley of yet more gorse and awkward lies. Good luck!.
