The history associated with Prestwick Golf Club made the visit a magical one. The staff and personnel in the Pro Shop couldn't have been more helpful. The golf course itself is a challenge and a half.

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.

Golf began here - competitively. The first Open was played here in 1860 and the course retains many of the original features as laid out by Old Tom Morris. If you wish to experience golf as it was originally played, with all of the quirkiness and spectacle of the original design, plus sample the historic clubhouse (jacket and tie only will get you into the much older and famous parts) then this is a course to be played before you hang your clubs up.

Prestwick is a bit quirky but I feel a must play to experience the home of the British Open and one of the oldest golf courses in the world.
