Prestwick Golf Club
Prestwick was the first course on the Open rota when the tournament was held there in 1860, when the members raised money through entry fees to purchase a red morocco belt with silver clasps, and was won by Musselburgh's Willie Park. When Young Tom Morris won three successive titles from 1868, he was awarded the belt permanently, necessitating the purchase of the now famous Claret Jug in 1872.
Today's visitors can expect a traditional links course, sharing the same turf as the prestigious Royal Troon, and a warm welcome in the clubhouse, where excellent food is available both the Dining Room and the more relaxed Cardinal Room.

Prestwick is a course that one must play. It is well known to be a bit quirky in places, but overall I would say that it is good, fair test of golf. Only a couple of times a good shot to the green was punished by a random bounce. We used a Forecaddy, which is essential if you have not played the course before, due to many blind shots. The Forecaddy was good with the lines, but kept telling us, often just as we were about to hit the ball, that we were playing too slowly, and had to speed up. As we kept clear of the group behind, and did the front 9 in 1hr 55 min, and the whole 18 in 3hr, 55 min, which is quick for a Fourball, these comments were totally unnecessary. It seemed that he wanted to get back for lunch before his afternoon round. We eventually told him to button it. The staff at the club made us feel very welcome, particularly the dining and bar staff, and the reception staff. Overall, we had a lovely day at Prestwick, which is a must-do for all golfers.
Loved Prestwick. Perhaps could have a little more signage to assist a visitor to negotiate the course. But it is full of interesting challenges, and is a real Links Course.
