Can I take a train to The Open?

Modified on Wed, 05 Jun 2024 at 04:50 PM

ScotRail provides train services on routes across Scotland to Troon – the nearest station to the course – and capacity on this line will be significantly increased during the week of The Open, with services running earlier in the morning to help fans catch the earlier tee times and at least five trains per hour during peak times. Connections from the wider rail network to Troon are available at Kilmarnock (from Dumfries and Carlisle), and Glasgow Central for all other destinations. Troon Station is located approximately 1.3km from the main spectator entrance to The 152nd Open and a bus service will be available to transport passengers to and from the course.


Train services are expected to be busy during The 152nd Open so please ensure you leave plenty of time to travel. Rail timetables for Championship week and ticket booking information will be published here when available.


Golflink tickets are available to purchase now on the ScotRail website - please select 'Golflink (QGL)' as the destination station when using the journey planner. This ticket price includes the cost of the return bus journey to the course and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to reduce queuing time at the station.

Assistance is available for passengers with additional accessibility requirements. Information on accessible train travel and booking passenger assistance can be found on the ScotRail website.
