The links is an 18 hole, par 72 signature course designed by Ian Baker-Finch in association with Nicklaus Design. Built as a true desert-style grass course, players love the natural flow of the holes through the sand dunes and wonderful desert landscape, many of which incorporate some truly great design concepts. In 2014, a 2 year enhancement program was completed, adding spectacular vistas whilst maintaining the integrity of the original design.

Playing up to 7,658 yards, it is a true test of championship golf. The provision of tee complexes of varying distance also ensures enjoyment and reward for golfers of all abilities. A challenge for golfers of all abilities, miss the immaculate grass of the fairways and greens and you enter the 'sandy waste', which makes the most of the natural terrain with its indigenous shrubs and bushes. All standards of golfers will appreciate the GPS yardage service available on every golf cart.

Our long term goal has always been to be able to evolve with the golf course as it changes. We are always looking for new ways to make your golfing experience with us an enjoyable one

The luxurious Spanish Colonial Clubhouse was the first in the region to open guest rooms within the Clubhouse, 11 in total. The Ranches Restaurant and Terrace boasts scenic views over the 9th and 18th greens. The perfect setting, any time of day, to enjoy the company of friends and family over exquisite international cuisine.

My husband and I were paired in a 4-ball. One was a Korean gentleman. Delightful and good player. He had been paired with a 16 year old Singaporean young man …. Who didn’t have a handicap, who had no idea of golf etiquette and it was his first time on a golf course. It was a joke! I spent the next 5 hours being nice and coaching … but it ruined everybody’s round and was en entire waste of our green fees. Really poor management from Troon Golf as they had taken his booking! I felt bad for the kid, bad for the Korean guy and we just felt we wasted a whole day of our 5 day holiday. I would like to seek a refund in full. Thanks D Oliver
