Royal Troon Clubhouse

This morning, it was time for fond farewells with my tour group. We had an early start in Edinburgh and arrived just on time, about two hours later, at Troon ferry terminal where guests joined the ferry to Larne in Ireland for the second leg of their tour. 

 After a spot of breakfast I paid a brief visit to Royal Troon which is a quality Chanmpionship course located on the Ayrshire coastline. The course was founded in 1878 and course record is held by Greg Norman and E. Woods. The two most famous holes are the 6th (577 yards) and the 8th (Postage Stamp).

There are links to classical ballet. Ladies participation dates from around the turn of the 20th century. Read more on Highland Dancing, Scotland…
