Prestwick Golf Club overview

Prestwick Golf Course overview

Towering sand dunes, rippled fairways, blind approach shots and firm, fast greens are hallmarks of this historic links course which make it so unique and fun to play. Measuring 6908-yards from the tips it is a testament to tradition with a layout that has the holes weaving and shaping their way through the dunes.

Strong approach play is important with the greens often small and either hidden in hollows or perched atop raised plateaus. For golfers who appreciate their history, they will savour playing a links course that reflects so much of the original design.

Signature Holes

The 17th at Prestwick is known as the ‘Alps’ and is regarded as one of the great blind holes in golf. A drive down a narrow fairway is followed by an approach shot over dunes which block any view of the green (hence the name Alps). The putting surface is heavily protected on the sides by long fescue grass and a long, deep railway-sleeper bunkers.

Did You Know?

The very first Open Championship was held at Prestwick Golf Club. Willie Park of Musselburgh was the winner, taking home the prize of a red Moroccan leather belt with silver clasps and an ornamental silver buckle. Very different to the vast sums of money on offer for winning these days!
