Prestwick St Cuthbert Golf Club moved to its existing course in 1963, after making way for the development of Prestwick Airport. Since its promising start, a lot has happened to help improve this parkland course, such as thousands of trees being planted that have now reached maturity. The course now has its own identity as a fabulous mature course, with picturesque fairways and excellent greens.

Founded in 1899, the course was given a grand opening with an exhibition match between John Panton, Eric Brown, Dai Rees and Peter Alliss – not a bad fourball to open up your new club.

Although the course is pretty flat and easy walking, many of the greens are elevated and quite small so it can be tricky to hold with your approach. Also, care has to be given to the doglegs, because you can’t afford to be blocked in behind the tree-lined fairways.

Signature Hole

Although there isn’t necessarily a signature hole, Prestwick St Cuthbert contains no less than nine doglegs, which is truly a unique element of golf courses in Scotland.
