Play a round of Golf at Troon 18 Holes, Prestwick Links

Prestwick Golf Club is located in the town of Prestwick , South Ayrshire. It is approximately 30 miles (50 km) southwest of Scotland's largest city, . Prestwick is a classic links golf course, being built on the rolling sandy land lying between the beach and the land further inland. The course is located near the Prestwick airport, and some holes run along tracks on the eastern side of the course. Golf had been played over the links at Prestwick for many years before the Club was formally organized in 1851. Old Tom Morris was the club's "Keeper of the Green, Ball and Club Maker" from 1851 to 1864. He designed and built the original 12-hole course, which measured 3,799 yards, 578 of which were on the first hole. Morris, originally from St Andrews , returned there to take charge of their links in 1865, but also assisted Prestwick when it extended its course to 18 holes in 1882 after the club acquired significantly more land to the north of its original lay-out. With the course's expansion to 18 holes, which had become the game's standard, cross-routing was eliminated.

Day - 2 Golf at Royal Troon Championship Links

Breakfast at hotel.

Play a round of Golf at 18 Holes, Royal Troon Links

Although the Club had hosted Amateur Championships before the First World War, it was not until 1923 that The Open Championship was first held at Troon. In 1922 the Club was invited to host The Open the following year as The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers deemed that as their course at Muirfield was undergoing extensive remodelling it would not be ready in time for the Championship they were meant to host. Given that the Championship in those days was much smaller and less complicated affair than today it was still a large event for the Twenties as the great American golfers were starting to come over to play in numbers. Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen led the transatlantic contingent but the the event was won by an Englishman, Arthur Havers, who tamed the "breezy links o' Troon" As Championships have grown in size and courses have been lengthened over the years Troon has replaced Prestwick, where the first Open was staged, and become a true test of the best professional and amateur golfers in the world and is now a regular on the Open circuit and for other competitions.
