Our Review

To get the bad news over with first, the great American golf writer Dan Jenkins once said of Prestwick that it has 10 holes you would like to roll up and mail to your worst enemies.

It is not the prettiest course in the world, has many blind shots, unusual routing, brutal bunkers and a harsh, unforgiving, flinty heart.

But by heaven it is a great place to play golf and the history of the game seeps up through the turf with every step you take and every shot you play. And here, of course, is where championship golf began, not only in the UK but in the world, with the first Open being staged here in 1860.

It went on the stage golf’s greatest event 24 times, second only to St Andrews. It is too short to host a professional event in the modern era and frankly, too quirky but if you do visit, try and play it more than once as it is definitely a layout that rewards a bit of local knowledge – and on your first visit, take a caddy.

37th Best UK Golf Course 


Prestwick Golf Club extends a warm welcome to all Golfers from all around the World wishing to come and enjoy our testing traditional Links.

Prestwick Golf Club is situated just half an hour south west of Glasgow on the famous golfing Ayrshire coast. A stretch of land unequalled anywhere in the world for prime golfing terrain. Prestwick shares it boundaries with Royal Troon and is just 20 minutes from Turnberry, with Open final qualifying courses such as Kilmarnock Barassie, Glasgow Gailes, Western Gailes and Irvine Bogside all within just 5 minutes drive.

Prestwick Golf Club is a relaxed and friendly club that enjoys hosting golfers from all around the World. Visitors are encouraged to use their temporary membership to its full capacity, and enjoy the full lunch in the lavish Dining room or just a snack in the relaxed Cardinal room.

Prestwick Golf Club was founded in 1851 by a group of members who met at the Red Lion Inn, Prestwick. The Earl of Eglinton was the first Captain of the club, and presented a gold medal for annual competition, the Eglinton gold medal is played for to this day. Colonel Fairlie of Coodham brought Old Tom Morris to Prestwick from St. Andrews to be Keeper of the Green, Ball and Club Maker. The members purchased two cottages opposite the Red Lion Inn- One for Tom and his family, and the other as a clubhouse- both buildings are still standing today. Tom returned to St.Andrews in 1864 and his house was auctioned in 1866 for £170. This allowed the club to build a new Clubhouse on the present site for a cost of £758 in 1868. In 1877, extensions cost £700 and in 1882, 90 lockers, which are still in use, were installed at a cost of £350.

The first Open Championship was held at Prestwick in 1860, which organised by the members who subscribed £25 to purchase a red morocco belt with silver clasps. It was won by Willie Park of Musselburgh with a score of 174 over 36 holes. The Belt was won in three successive years by Young Tom Morris from 1868 to 1870 and thus became his property. When Morris won for the third time, in 1870, he had a first round score of 47 over 12 holes, a score that has never been equalled or bettered. He started with a three at the 578yard first hole- in those days a par 6. His Belt is now in the keeping of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St.Andrews. A replica Belt was presented to Sandy Lyle.
