Overview

The cradle of the world’s oldest golf tournament. Prestwick hosted The Open 24 times between 1860 and 1925. And only St Andrews has staged more Championships than this classic links designed and built by Old Tom Morris. Today, the on-course challenge – burns, blinds and bunkers – and eccentric layout remain as exciting as ever. A living monument to the game.
