    Loved it. Blind shots , challenging greens, manageable rough. Played from proper tees, it is a return to what golf was when it really began in 19th century. As a senior golfer it was great fun.  more »

    There are so many beautiful, scenic, friendly, nostalgic and challenging courses in Scotland. Prestwick has none of those qualities. The course is very poorly maintained. No driving range. The staff w...  more »

    While in Ayrshire I stayed right across the street from Prestwick and we played it one day followed by many late night starts for another 9 or more holes after a day on the links throughout the area.....  more »

  • I agree with the 5-star reviews about the course. It is historic; regardless of St. Andrews, here is where the Open began. The course itself is fascinating -- half is very old, with some surprising holes (that convinced me that the Scots never meant golf to be 'fair', that it was really a test of how you could persevere when your ball entered a pot bunker or bounced wildly because of a hump in the fairway), half was modernized just before the war (WW2). Some holes you cannot forget, from #1 with the train tracks as the right out-of-bounds, to the Cardinal bunkers. When I played years ago, a plane took off just as my playing partner was swinging on Himalayas -- the ball flew up as the 747 flew up -- a long and blind par 3 (again: the Scots' view of gold: why should you be able to see where your ball has to go?) I would expect Prestwick to be a stirring experience and a fun golf course for anyone who loves golf.
  • Great day but very very wet. Would love to play again in drier conditions.
  • Truly amazing experience! I was born in Glasgow and immigrated to the U.S. as a child. I was lucky enough to play Prestwick in my 30's and again at 50. Both times I felt privileged to play on this amazing course. It is a step back in time. The course isn't long, but with the conditions it is a challenge in every way. I took my friends from the US on my last trip and we all appreciated the history, the conditions and the genuine beauty of playing on this historic course.
  • pleasant environment, friendly people
  • Average clubhouse!? I was fortunate enough to play Prestwick last May. What an experience! Sure the clubhouse is not TPC Sawgrass , but that's the beauty of it. Spic and Span polished and Cozy. I'll bet you a dollar to a donut that even Augusta National doesn't have a signed Old Tom Morris scorecard or a signed photo of Princess Di in the sitting/smoking room. The layout, topography and bunkering are like nothing this old Florida boy has seen. Goes without saying that my scoring was poor, no fault of my accommodating caddy, go off the 2nd cut and I have no experience base for escaping that rough, not to mention the pot bunkers. It was the rare near perfect day! A caddy is a must. At least for the first go around, great entertaining men! They won't hesitate applying a good natured needling when appropriate, enhanced the enjoyment once I had interpreted what he said, the brogue was brutal sometimes to my deep south ears. Oh, never use yellow balls there! I thought perhaps they'd stand out better, not realizing the off fairway areas were littered with pretty little buttercups, the same color as my Bridgestones! I took a bit of caddy guff for that one to. 😉
