Arnold Palmer put Royal Troon on the map as a tournament venue when he captured his second Open Championship in a row on the Old Course in 1962. The attention given to Palmer's victory established a club that had heretofore hosted Open events only rarely as a fixture on the Open rotation schedule. The course has distinguished itself by keeping pace with advances in equipment and the way the game is played over the years. Only the opening series of fairly short and easy holes is really reminiscent of early layouts, where the warm-up was expected to take place on the course rather than in practice areas beforehand. There is a great variety to the holes; the shortest of any Open venue is here, and for a while so was the lengthiest. The standout is the 120-yard 8th, which is heavily bunkered and features a green descriptively called the Postage Stamp.
