In their Words…….
Prestwick Golf Club, the Birthplace of the Open Championship, welcomes all golfers from around the world to come and enjoy our testing historic Links. 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, who met regularly at the Red Lion Inn, made the momentous decision to form a golf club purchasing two cottages opposite the tavern. The first cottage would become the members’ clubhouse whilst the other was gifted to the club’s Keeper of the Green, ball and clubmaker – Old Tom Morris.
Together with a gold medal presented by the club’s first captain (the Earl of Eglinton) for an annual competition still played for today, the legend of Prestwick was born.
Situated on a stretch of golfing terrain unrivalled in the world, Prestwick is less than a couple of hours travel from all the other Open Championship courses in Scotland and is a must play for any discerning lover of the game.
Rich in character, the famous clubhouse is as much part of the Prestwick experience as the celebrated course over which the Open Championship was first played. Here prized golfing memorabilia adorn aged wood-panelled walls with infectious laughter wafting through the corridors.
This is a place where history brushes shoulders with unreserved fun. Prestwick’s clubhouse is delightful not only for the glimpse it offers into golf’s past, but also for the warm welcome given to visitors who are granted club membership for the day. Guided tours are actively encouraged to take in the highlights of the early days of the Open Championship as well as the club’s rich history and its links with the Morris family. For lovers of the game, this is where golf’s myths and legends come to life.Prestwick Golf Club
