Played the Fairways Course at Prestonwood CC as part of a tournament. The facilities at Prestonwood are really first class. The clubhouse is huge with gorgeous decor. There is an ample driving range, and multiple putting and short game areas. The staff was all very friendly. The Fairways course itself is the easiest of the three at PCC according to rating and slope. There is ample room off of most of the tees, and water only comes into play on a handful of holes. There are 5 par 3's and 3 par 5's on this course for a total par of 70. Water comes into play on only a few of the holes. The greens are fairly large with a decent amount of movement on them. The course favors neither fade nor a draw. Each can be successful here. There isn't much elevation change from hole to hole. Each hole is fairly flat with some mounding present. The routing is a little tricky at some points, particularly 6 to 7, 7 to 8, and 14 to 15. A wrong turn could put you at the wrong hole or even on the wrong course, so pay attention!

What a great course. This is the shortest of the 3 courses Prestonwood offers but don’t let the lack of distance fool you. It can be very challenging and create a lot of interesting tee shots. Pace of play is great. Typically 3.5 hours on week days and 4 hr on weekends.

Enjoyed a charity tournament here.

Its a nice facility and a playable course for all level of golfers.

The course was in good shape. Anytime you have tournaments there are folks that are not avid golfers that seem to chew it up. There was a little bit of that going on here.

Overall, a nice place to play and I would recommend it.

There is no way to go wrong at Prestonwood Country Club. All three golf courses provide you with unprecedented challenges. I do enjoy the meadows course but its not my favorite of the 3.

The Fairways course at Prestonwood is another good one and very comparable to the Meadows. It can provide its own unique challenges and introduces you into a variety of holes. If you had to play only one course, I would go play Highlands instead of Fairways.

This is the best course at Prestonwood. The entire course is well thought out and you can't get a better finish than the final two holes. If you have never played here, it ends just like TPC Sawgrass. The 17th is an island hole and 18 is a dog leg around water.
