The history of Prestwick Golf Club stretches back over 160
years to a time when golf was in its infancy. In 1851, a group of 57 enthusiastic members, met at the Red Lion Pub and established the Open Championship. A true original Links layout and host to the first “Open Championship” in 1860.
Host to the Open Championship, and a real test of golfing ability. with the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the prevailing north-westerly wind can make the back nine extremely difficult.
"Hogan" hole (the sixth) and the Buddon Burn (the twelfth) conspire to give you a round of golf to remember. Renowned as a final qualifying venue for the Open Championship held at Carnoustie.
One of Scotland's most prestigious member clubs, mixing the finest tradition with some of the most admired natural links land in the world.
