Prestwick is one of the oldest golf clubs in the world and stakes claim as the original host to the British Open in 1860. The course was only 12 holes back then, but was later stretched to 18 by Old Tom Morris. Today, the Open has moved next door to Royal Troon when its in this neck of Ayrshire, but Prestwick still demands utmost respect from first-time guests, as it features narrow fairways and rugged dunes creating many blind shots. Players are most advised to take caddies along. Prestwick's clubhouse also features a wonderful collection of golf memorabilia.
