Prestwick Golf Club

The Birthplace of The Open

Prestwick Golf Club

Steeped in golfing history, this lovingly-tended old golf course hosted The Open for the first twelve years. Founded in 1851, the club's first Keeper of the Green, Ball and Club Maker was none other than 'Old' Tom Morris, who remained at Prestwick until 1864. Despite several little changes through the years, many blind tee shots remain, which make for very demanding second shots. Every hole is interesting and many idiosyncratic. Every golfer should experience playing Prestwick at least once in their golfing career.
