What the club says: Prestwick St. Nicholas Golf Club, established in 1851, is right at the heart of a wonderful golfing area in Ayrshire. With a sense of history and tradition, and commanding beautiful views across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran in the West and Ailsa Craig in the South, golfing at St. Nicholas is an experience not to be missed.

The course is a challenging and tight traditional links of 5,952 yards in length with a Par of 69. Due to its proximity to the shoreline, an almost ever-present wind ensures that the course provides a good test of golfing ability. The shorter hitter of the ball however will not suffer, as few of the holes require long carries from the tee to reach the fairways.

True Links

This is a true links test in the breezy conditions that I experienced. The fairways are narrow and undulating and the greens ran true and fast. The course was in great condition and the views of Arran were fantastic. Club selection had to be carefully thought out, especially when playing towards the sea. I thoroughly enjoyed my round here, and the hospitality afterwards was first class.

I would have liked to have played the course in better weather as the conditions were dreadful.
The course however held up very well despite the torrential rain. I would certainly like to play it again and would recommend it. Furthermore the lady serving in the clubhouse that day went the extra mile to provide sandwiches and coffee which was much appreciated despite the clubhouse undergoing some refurbishment that day. Well worth a visit

Lovely course, tricky in a few places and a few blind tee shots. Need to play when there is not a 25 MPH wind.

Very challenging links course, more so by the driving rain and wind experienced at times throughout the round. Very well kept like most private clubs and every green was in perfect condition. Look forward o trying it in the summer with the better weather.

Played this course on 26 March 2010 in absolutely abysmal weather. Heavy rain and 30mph gusts. Still the course played brilliantly. The greens were excellent and true. Some of the holes like the 6th and 7th were real monsters to play in those winds. The staff were really friendly and welcoming (especially the starter). A really top course. I would love to play it again in good weather.
