Golf Course/
Royal Troon Portland

The Portland Course was opened in June 1895 although it was only in 1924 that the name was changed from the Relief Course.

In more recent times, the qualifying rounds for the European Open in 1979 were played over the Portland Course.

The first Clubhouse of a substantial nature was completed in 1886 and additions and alterations over the years have provided the Members with a building of character and considerable charm.

The Portland Course is an excellent links course and provides a real test to the higher handicapper who would maybe consider Royal Troon too tough.

Although a links course, the Portland is a little more sheltered than the Old Course and of course, shorter. The holes meander through terrain filled with gorse and broom and has a generous helping of par-3s, five in all.

Gorse and broom frame a challenge that does not let you go without a fight – there are four par-5s on the back nine.

Enjoy the challenging yet thrilling greens at the Portland Course, which will give you a golf break to talk about for years to come.
