Golf Course/
Prestwick

The Ayrshire course holds a special place in the golfing history books, having been the venue for the first-ever Open Championship back in 1860.It last staged an Open in 1925 but the Americans in particular love Prestwick and its often unique test of golf.

The Club is situated just half an hour's drive southwest of Glasgow on Ayrshire's famous golfing coast, a stretch of land as famous as any in the world for prime golfing terrain. Prestwick shares its boundaries with Royal Troon and is just 40 minutes from Turnberry, with Open final qualifying courses such as Kilmarnock Barassie, Glasgow Gailes, Western Gailes and Irvine Bogside all within a 20-minute drive.

The first tee sits beside Prestwick Station and the railway line runs all the way down the right-hand side of the opening hole. There are plenty of other holes where a score can come off the tracks, though, the huge 'Cardinal Bunker' providing potential trouble at the third and the 'Himalayas' having to be negotiated at the 206-yard par-3 fifth.

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.
