History of the Club

The Ladies' Golf Club , Troon was founded in 1882, although the ladies had been playing over the Troon course prior to this date. The entry fee was fixed at two shillings and sixpence, the equivalent of twelve and a half pence. In 1887 Junior members under the age of twelve were admitted to membership. When more land became available in 1896 the Portland Course was created, and the following year the ladies had the present clubhouse built on ground purchased from the Duke of Portland and it was opened on the 11th September 1897.

Helen Holm

Since 1973, we have hosted the Helen Holm Scottish Stroke Play Championship. The first two qualifying rounds are played over the Portland course on the Friday and Saturday and the final round is played over Royal Troon's Championship course on the Sunday. This competition draws top class lady amateur golfers from all over the world. The trophy is made from the jiggerr Helen Holm used in competitions and the medals she won at the Scottish and British Championships. Two of our own members have won this prestigious trophy three times each, Belle Robertson and Wilma Aitken (Leburn).

The 2009 Helen Holm Championship was won by 14years old Leona McGuire from Northern Ireland.The youngest winner of the Trophy.Leona had rounds of 69,77 & 73 from the Gents Medal tees on the Portland and the 12th& 18th Gents Medal tees on the Old Course.An amazing display of golf for a young girl!
