About the course

Prestwick St Nicholas Golf Club originally played on the 12 holes which comprised Prestwick Golf Club. In 1877 the Club moved to a different site in Prestwick but the ground was only leased on a short term basis and the Committee took action to ensure they got ground they would ultimately call their own. In 1892 the Club moved to its present site and 18 holes were laid out by the Club’s first professional, John Allan, and Charlie Hunter who had succeeded Tom Morris as professional at Prestwick Golf Club.

The course is a traditional Scottish links possessing as it does a sandy, free draining soil, gorse, deep bunkers and a seemingly ever present wind which tests the skills of players of all abilities. The sandy soil allows golf to be played here all year round as the heaviest rain drains away very speedily.
