Visited her with 11 others on Friday 12th September for a golf stag day. Can honestly say that not one hole disappointed. From the first hole which is exceptionally narrow to the third which has the most ridiculously sized bunker in driving distance to seventeen where you need to hit your approach over a couple of humps, (has a slight...

Ok, so the first hole runs along the railroad track and looks undistinguished. Don't be fooled! This course where the first Open Championship was held in 1860 will break your back unless your shots are straight and true. Best advice I can give you? Take a caddy and listen to him!

A perfect course with true links character. Some blind shots, some open shots (only to find out there are more hazards thank you thought). to summ up: a great experience of true golf

Played here and can honestly say probably the friendliest ' Quality ' golf course I have played. From the warm greeting from the starter to the helpful chaps in the pro shop to the caddie that helped me navigate around and put up with one or two wayward shots, this was a wonderful experience. The golf course is superb and... More

A wonderful experience for all golfers. Where it all began for The Open, this place is steeped in history and oozes tradition. A great links test of golf with some blind shots and hidden dangers. A must-play for all keen golfers.

Got absolutely poured on but still played and enjoyed my round as much as the 6 other well renowned courses. Need a caddy or a couple of watchful playing partners..best blind routing I've come across and was warmly embraced as I left the carpark to the time I had my final sip in the clubhouse..great conditioning, fun and layout. Great... More

Had played a lot of courses in prior trips but first visit to Prestwick. A great day and the club is very welcoming to guests. Do not miss it.

We played this the day after Troon and the day before Turnberry. Of the three it was my favourite. Its a classic links course with a lot of history and there are a number of idiosyncratic features - blind par threes and par fours - and several very challenging holes. We had a caddy and I would say this is... More

Home of The Open and Old and Young Tom Morris. It's a classic short course with some tricked up holes, but quite challenging and fun. Starter and pro shop staff were very accommodating and friendly.
