Troon Golf Club was formed on the 16th March 1878, at a Meeting of enthusiasts, in the Portland Arms Hotel in Troon. The first Captain appointed was James Dickie who held office for four years. Dr John Highet held the office of Honorary Secretary from 1878 until 1893.
The Club's first Honorary President was His Grace William John Arthur Charles James, The 6th Duke of Portland K.G., P.C., G.C.V.O. By 1880 the Club had six holes, and by 1888 these had been extended to eighteen holes measuring 3 miles, 1 furlong and 156 yards.
George Strath was the first Professional to the Club and to date only five other Professionals have held the position. He was substantially involved in the design of the 12 and 18 hole Courses prior to leaving in 1887. www.royaltroon.co.uk
