Royal Troon Golf ClubThis aerial panoramic photograph of Royal Troon Golf Club was taken by James Blakeway. Royal Troon Golf Club, situated
on the west coast of Scotland, was formed in 1878 at a meeting of enthusiasts
in Troon and quickly developed a reputation as a testing course. The Old
Course, located in the foreground, is widely accepted as one of the most
difficult courses in Scotland. With the wind and the deep rough interspersed
with gorse and broom, accuracy is essential. The Portland Course, located
in the distance, is a more sheltered par 71 course. The clubhouse is located
at the far left of the panorama.
