Troon Links - Darley
The first Troon Municipal Darley Golf Course dates from about 1910, though the current one, with its original bogey par of 71 opened June 9, 1951.
Troon Links - Darley plays shorter than Lochgreen, meaning a tight round of golf with heather and gorse clogging the edges of several fairways, and an easy enough start makes the tests between the fifth and 15th holes all the more frustrating.
Shoot straight on Troon Links - Darley, as, in addition to the heather and gorse, there's plenty of whin.

We turned up early to get breakfast in the clubhouse, excellent clubhouse friendly staff and food was excellent value.
Course has a great layout no 2 holes the same good test of golf.
Greens were a bit soft but due to the recent rain this is understandable.
No rakes in the bunkers but good sand only down side was quite a few cans and bottles lying on the course.
1st time playing the course and will definitely go back and play in the summer excellent value.
Golf course or dog walking park ?
Played this course and just about every hole had a dog Walker on it and at 1point a dog not on a lead changed at me trying to steal my ball ! I did get a sorry from the dog owner but after 15 holes of being put off and interrupted by dogs and there owners I would not go back to this course ! I complained to the course starter about the goings on around this course and he was unapologetic, and said that there is nothing can be done about them ! So this course it being ruined by a selection of ignorant people ! This course cost me £20 to play ! And my day was ruined by Shyte people and they’re shyting dogs ! The people who run this course should hang there heads in Shame ! Do your job !
Fantastic day out
What a great day. The sunshine was out and the course was in great condition. For value you cannot beat any of the courses in Troon. Darley is tricky but a real treat for any golfer.
Great test of golf
Played Lochgreen which was good , but this is easily the best of the three courses and well worth the money.
Challenging but playable.
An opportunity to play in Troon
In terms of availability and fitting in with holiday schedules- this was my best option.
Overall I would say this was a fair test of golf over a different terrain (my home course is parkland) - and I got a round in for a modest fee.
I enjoyed it - it was a little slow pace at times- greens good - and for the money- you can’t ask for much more.
Very poor overall not worth £33 typical council golf course greens were the only good point about the round would not play there again
Very good and testing course. Be prepared to lose balls if your not going down the middle. Ninth hole is now an absolute disaster though. What were they thinking. Good course but £36 is steep. Better coursed locally for less.
So much potential
The greens were fantastic.
Fairways could do with a lot of work and look as if they have just been left to bake in the hot sun.
Course played very well greens in fabulous condition only down point was fairways very burnt but can't help the weather
Recent weather made the fairways very fast, some undulating fairways where the ball could roll off, greens superb and holding a good shot.
Overall a good test.
Good course ruined by dog walkers
Darley is actually a pretty decent course for being a public course but it is absolutely ruined by dog walkers. I like to play in the mornings and you probably see 10+ dogs in your round all off the leash running around.
Great course, played many times. Lots of work being done to strengthen the layout. An idea could be to return the third to load layout and place new tee just behind second green as it used to play.
Great days golf
True links golf, testing layout, green in great condition. Time to get back to rakes in bunkers and removing flags when putting. Staff need to improve their attitude although pro shop staff are great. If you have never golfed here it’s a must, and a must return. Lochgreen and Darley are great tracks.
