The Prestwick Country Club is a links-style golf layout carefully crafted by Pete and P.B. Dye. This amazing golf vacation destination is an 18-hole South Carolina course that was opened for play way back in 1989. From the longest tees, the layout provides golfing guests with the 7,058-yard par-72 play. The golf course, with its challenging design, was given a course rating of 74.2 and a 140 slope rating. And with its six sets of tees, golfers of all skill levels can make the most out of their golfing games while taking a break away from the busy world.
Since its debut, the Prestwick Country Club has been acknowledged among the finest golf courses in the area. Some of its stunning features include the 35-foot towering dune-like berms, dogwood lined fairways, timber-rimmed bunkers, the bulkhead-protected greens, dazzling wildflowers, sandy waste areas, and the meandering lakes and streams. And in order to come up with the unique design, an estimated of over a million cubic yards of land was moved to the area. Because of the course’s exigent design, it already hosted several golf competitions including the state’s Mid-Amateur Championship as well as the U.S. Open qualifier.
The front nine of the Prestwick Country Club which is reminiscent to the Harbour Town Golf Links, makes this golf vacation destination very attractive. The back nine on the other hand features the more open layout that resembles the PGA West, another Dye masterpiece. Each year, the Prestwick is flocked by guests not just to test their golfing skills but also to take a relaxing break together with family and friends in a place where creativity is perfectly blended with nature.
