Prestwick town guide
Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Prestwick sits between the towns of Ayr and Troon. It is home to Glasgow Prestwick International Airport, with services to many parts of Europe and to North America.
Prestwick Golf Club was formed in the Red Lion Hotel in 1851. The first Open Golf Championship was played at Prestwick Golf Club in 1860 and was won by Wullie Park.
The airfield was developed in 1935. Founder members David McIntyre and The Duke of Hamilton were the first men to fly over Everest.
Prestwick is an ideal choice for those holidaymaker's and day visitors who plan to visit the Royal Troon Open Golf Championship. Situated in the heart of Robert Burns country a hire car will help the visitor to get round the various nearby sites associated with Robert Burns.
Take a walk along the beachfront and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the west coast.
For those who may wish to venture further, perhaps in a rental car, there are many ferry services available to take the visitor across to the beautiful Isle of Arran or to the Kyles of Bute with stunning coastal scenery.
