Royal Troon Golf Club Hole by Hole: Hole 13

Hole 13 – Par 4 – 473 yards

The bunker-less 13th is known as ‘Burmah’ because Troon’s founding Captain had trading connections with the country, which is now known as Myanmar.

The hole doglegs slightly to the right and the tee shot has to find a very undulating fairway.

The final six holes all play straight back towards the clubhouse, usually into a stiff wind.

A good drive should leave a mid-to-long iron into the green which is raised.
