Old Course, Royal Troon Golf Club
South West Scotland, Scotland
When playing Royal Troon, not only can you claim to having played the longest par-5 on The Open circuit, you can also claim to have played the shortest par-3 at 123 yards, ‘The Postage Stamp’ as it was nicknamed by golf journalist Willie Park. The ‘Royal’ was added to the name in 1978 during the club’s centenary celebrations by Queen Elizabeth II.
