  • I returned to Prestwick after not having played there for a while and, in a strong wind, it was a real test of golf. Definitely not for beginners, even experienced golfers can struggle here. I am sure...  read more »

  • 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. 😉
  • 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.
  • Teeing off into History! If you are an avid golfer this course drips with history and the start of the game. Going back to the days of Old Tom Morris, this links layout is still as challenging as the days when 200 yd drives were the norm. As being the first course to host the Open Championship in 1860, you will get chills just stepping on the course. At least I did. You can sense the historic value this course holds and almost see Old Tom playing along side as you stroll the fairways of this links course. If you get a chance set a tee time and bring your links "A" game, you will need it. Course knowledge is a plus so get a caddie if playing for the first time. FYI Americans, No changing your shoes in the parking lot and hats off in the club house. They take the game seriously, as they should. Highly Recommend!
  • Good course
  • Quirky course, average clubroom.
