Atrocious conditions, great layout. Schizophrenic course

This place calls itself a "country club" for some reason. Tee boxes were a joke, fairways full of weeds, green unkempt and bouncy, sand traps were actually outlined in white for a free drop since they were unplayable. One of the worst courses I've ever played. Oh, and the beers were $6/ea. to top it off. "COUNTRY" maybe. "Club", no way. Avoid at all costs.

A Potentially Nice Course

The course has potential to be an above average course. However, the course is not properly taken care of which truly holds back it's beauty. The sand traps are "dirt traps" and some of the tee boxes have recently been re-sodded so you are basically teeing off from the rough. The course has a nice layout and challenging holes and with some maintenance could be a great course. The staff is super friendly and the clubhouse is very clean and welcoming. The course itself just needs a little love.

Not so great experience

I’ve golfed at Prestwick a handful of times, this time was just over all not the best.

Hardly any cars were in the parking lot, but for some reason they did not have enough carts for everyone (alot just sitting in the barn). Ultimately it took us an hour to even get a cart, and another 20 minutes to tee off after our tee time.

Course conditions weren’t bad at all for being this early in the year. Only complaint I had was flopping my 60 degree out of a side green bunker, but busting it on a rock buried under the sand the size of a baseball. Completely scraped my Volkey wedge. I wasn’t thrilled.

Through golf now only payed $20 a golfer to play, so absolute great price since I’ve paid over $45 to play there before.

Yikes

Look, after reading all of the other reviews, I really dont want to beat a dead horse but....wow. The course conditions are beyond terrible, to the point it really doesnt qualify as a round of golf. No true bounces in the fairway. In fact I started aiming for the rough to find some grass, as there wasnt much in the fairways, and dont get me started on the lack of grass at literally EVERY tee box. Add all of this, and the fact you have the audacity to charge 41 bucks for a round at this goat ranch is highway robbery. 20 bucks at this point, based on the conditions alone, would also qualify as highway robbery. Dont make the same mistake I did, your better off hitting in your backyard than paying a dime to these folks.

$15 course

I hate to do this but I don’t want anyone to repeat my mistake.

Tee boxes and fairways were arguably the worst I’ve ever seen...that includes the $20 municipal courses I play all the time. Add that to paying $35 and that equals never going back.

Prestwick is what 2020 would look like if it was a golf course.

The "Richard" Experience

Let me start off by saying I am not a picky golfer. By that I mean that a course doesn’t not have to be anywhere close to perfect condition for me to have fun. Ultimately what I prefer in a course is a cool layout with holes that do not seem to repeat themselves. IMO the layout at Prestwick is awesome! I absolutely loved the design! We were having fun. The condition of the course is not good. By any means. We had made several comments about the tee boxes having little to no grass. The fairways were not much different. The greens were decent but were so hard that you couldn’t even get a wedge to hold. None the less we were having fun. Like I said, I’m not a picky golfer. Everything was fine and then RICHARD happened!

Here’s what happened.... Richard pulled up as we were finishing up on the 14th green and introduced himself as “the person that takes care of the course” and acknowledged that the course was not in very good shape. He then proceeded to tell us how he doesn’t even allow his employees to drive that close to the green. (We were parked in the rough 10-15 feet from the green). I admit that I was too close to the green. My playing partner apologized and said it won’t happen again. We thought that was the end of it as he returned to his cart but then he got very unfriendly and disrespectful and repeating himself and took it way too far. He was flat out rude! I admit we were too close to the green, but we apologized and said we wouldn’t do it again.

Needless to say, after that the fun was over and Richard had ruined the entire experience for us. Never in my life have been treated so poorly at a golf course as a paying customer. The course is in garbage condition. The design is really cool but with a guy like Richard in charge I fear it will just be a field of grass in a matter of time. If Prestwick doesn’t make a change in Richard’s position they will not last much longer.

Not worth the money

Overall layout is good. Greens in decent shape, slower than neighboring courses. Fairways and tee boxes on the front 9 are atrocious. I shouldn’t be hitting off bare dirt in the fairways or having to find a spot in the tee box where there is sufficient grass to maintain my footing. If this course does not make a serious investment, I doubt it will survive much longer, which would be a shame as there are several nice homes on it.
