Men’s & Ladies’ Guest Day
All Guest Day Events consist of an 18-hole golf outing followed by a thoughtfully created meal, all of which allows Members to “show off” their Club. Each golf season typically has a guest day each for men and ladies. The price of each individual event varies; however, it provides a significant discount over the regular guest fee, especially considering that all players receive a tee favor and have an opportunity to win an on-course special contest. After each team posts a score, we acknowledge the winners and payout shop credit to one third of the field. Reflecting on such a great day it’s just icing on the cake.
Ladies’ Season Opener
This one day tournament traditionally has one of the largest turnouts of the year. The format of play changes from year to year, however the emphasis does not. A theme is usually chosen that encourages camaraderie over competition. Players are often paired by handicap to make an ABCD team. Champions are crowned and prizes awarded, but golf becomes secondary to new friendships formed during play, or connecting with a familiar face.
Men’s Season Opener
The Men’s Opener is a one day event involving a stag reception on Friday night and 18 holes of golf on Saturday morning. The festivities begin Friday night as ABCD pairings are announced. New team-mates become friends quickly over refreshments and betting. The format for Saturday is a 4-Ball Stableford.
Couples Club Championship
This tournament is played with two different and exciting formats; nine of the holes are played as a Better-Ball format and the second nine holes are played as a Chapman format. The overall winner is determined by a gross score with flight winners determined by net scores. A banquet following play honors the new champions.
The Member-Member (Men’s and Ladies’)
The Member-Member is another favorite tournament. Each tournament is played over two days, 36-holes names the team with the lowest net score the Member-Member Champions. The tendency for cooler weather this time of year often makes the greens firm and fast. The ability to pick your partner, combined with flights determined by team handicap ensures that everyone enjoys themselves. The men’s tournament starts Thursday evening again with some action at the Pari-Mutuel table and a Stag dinner.
Ladies’ Presidents Cup
This “Eclectic” event is one of the ladies’ favorites. Even though its 36-holes of individual stroke play nobody has to worry about the occasional blow-up hole. The second round consists only of trying to improve each hole’s score from the week before. The score that’s posted consists of the best score you make on each hole after two rounds.
The Men’s Stroke Play
This tournament has become a much anticipated event, with the winner earning an exemption into the Championship Flight of the Men's Club Championship. This tournament is a gross event that tests the player ability by playing from Blue tees.

The purpose of this tournament is pretty simple...to identify the best player.
Troon Country Club does this in the most traditional way possible-Match Play. Participants are seeded from low to high by current USGA Handicap Index. Next they are put into brackets of eight (8), paired up and sent to the golf course. The championship flight is played at scratch, while all other flights are at net (Depending on participation the championship flight may be limited to 4 ladies’).
Troon’s Premier Event Descriptions
Forsyth Couples Event
This unique themed event is the most popular couples’ event on the schedule. The event is named after Donald and Olive Forsyth, who were longtime members of Royal Troon in Scotland. Mr. Forsyth was instrumental in forging the
relationship now shared by the two clubs. Members pick their own teams consisting of three couples; then try to outdo each other not only on the links, but with decorations on their carts and with their costumes worn to the party on Saturday night.
The Quail Hunt and The Quail Classic
The Member-Guests, the men’s and the ladies’ respectively, are the biggest and one of the most popular events at the Club. Each three day event is jam packed with so much great food, good laughs and exciting golf that you may need a day or two to recover. Every player is treated to 45 holes of championship golf before flight winning teams advance to the elimination shoot-out. By the time the champagne is popped on the ninth green, the eventual champions have survived five more holes of pressure-packed, alternate shot golf.
The John Kayler Memorial Tournament
In loving memory of John Kayler, a former Troon employee, we come together to celebrate the spirit and character that defined him as an individual. The tournament also serves as an opportunity to raise money for the Troon Country Club Scholarship Foundation which benefits staff members at Troon who also share John’s passion for education in and out of the golf profession. This tournament has become a much anticipated and well attended event.
