If golf history interests you - Prestwick Golf Club will blow your mind!

Most of the world's golfers have never heard of Machrihanish - but that is their loss!
This golf course is easily good enough to host a major championship - but it is unlikely ever to happen.

championship brings. But for individual golfers and small groups/societies this is a must visit.

Not as famous as some Scottish courses - but as good as any of them!
