The Open will return to the Ayrshire coast in 2016 when the 145th Championship is played at Royal Troon and it will be the ninth time that the Championship has been held over the famous links, most recently in 2004 when veteran American Todd Hamilton overcame three-time major champion Ernie Els in a play-off.

For the first sixty years of The Open’s history, the Championship’s visits to south west Scotland were confined to Prestwick, Troon’s next-door neighbour. In 1923, all that changed: The Open came to Troon for the first time, and since then it has become a regular venue having hosted the Championship on eight occasions - 1923, 1950, 1962, 1973, 1982, 1989, 1997 and 2004.

Best of Scotland Holiday's package is based in Glasgow, not far from Royal Troon, and you will travel by Golflink train to Troon. Your hotel stay will be in the Glasgow Jury’s Inn Hotel, a few minutes’ walk from Central Station.

The four star Glasgow hotel is also a stone’s throw away from a plethora of restaurants and bars, a three minute walk from St Enoch shopping centre and just around the corner from The Arches, a unique bar, club and arts venue located beneath Glasgow’s Central Station.

All of the 321 rooms are en-suite and come with complimentary toiletries, a flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, air conditioning and room service available 24 hours. To ensure a comfortable night’s sleep, the rooms are equipped with large soft beds, with extra pillows and linen available on request.
