Our round of golf at Prestwick was so exciting! The birthplace of the British Open, we were charmed with both the fascinating history and the continuing demands of the course. Having a caddie here is a must as this traditional links course as it winds and intertwines. Without a caddie it would be easy to get lost and his guidance on playing the course was crucial to an enjoyable round of golf. Plus Chris McBride, our caddie who has been caddying for 42 years at Prestwick, shared some terrific insight into its dramatic and exciting history. With Hole names of Himalayas, Elysian Fields, Narrows and Alps they each live up to their names testing our skills. Huge bunkers lined with sleepers are a hard to avoid and a challenge to get out of. Hidden greens create another dimension often with bunkers protecting them. A fantastic course to play! In the clubhouse we got to see the replica belt for the first Irish Open and the Claret Jug as well as Old Tom Morris’ score cards. Guests are given a “temporary membership” for the day when golfing and enjoy the full lunch in the lavish dining room or relax in the Cardinal Room. Just remember as a private club proper dress is still required in the dining room.
