Marr RFC is a rugby union team based in Troon, Ayrshire, Scotland. They play in BT National League Division 1, the second tier of Scottish club rugby. They currently have three senior sides competing in various leagues.

Marr play their home games at Fullarton estate and has done since the clubs formation in the 1940s. It was originally for the former pupils of Marr College, a secondary school in Troon, and there is still a close affiliation between the club and local high school. They play in the distinct colours of purple, gold and green. Over the last few years Marr has had a revival mainly due to the introduction of former Scotland 'A' cap Craig Redpath as head coach and latterly Former Ayr players Paul Burke and Stephen Adair as additional coaches.

Starting with the 2010–11 season, Marr began a run of four successive league title wins which promoted the club from the sixth to the second tier of Scottish club rugby for the 2014–15 season.
