Prestwick Golf Club is a public daily fee course with a definite country club feel. The street leading to the club is lined with enormous upscale homes, and the first view of the clubhouse surrounded by well-tended flower beds and shrubbery might have you thinking you took a wrong turn and ended up at the local country club. Five sets of tees ranging from 6,876 yards to 5,295 make the course accessible to a wide range of golfers, but that doesn't mean it's easy. We played the white tees at 6,374 and found the course to be moderately difficult, with fast, subtly breaking greens protected by numerous bunkers, about a dozen ponds scattered throughout the course, and lots of really well-placed fairway bunkers. The fairways were smooth and well-manicured, set on rolling terrain with some elevation changes, nothing really severe. Rough was deep enough that our foursome was unable to find a few balls that strayed off the fairway. Set in the middle of an upscale housing development, the course has houses adjoining many of the fairways, close enough that OB in someone's back yard is a definite possibility on several holes. Even with the houses visible throughout the course, it is still a very attractive track. One hole that stands out is the dogleg left 8th hole. From an elevated tee, you see the fairway set at an angle and a large pond running parallel to it that must be carried to reach the fairway. The hole is only 321 yards from the white tees, so longer hitters can carry the entire pond to set up a wedge approach. Others will take a safer, shorter bite of the pond and have a mid-iron shot to the green. The 9th hole is a par 5 with a pond protecting the green. A second shot that goes too far left will leave an approach that must carry the pond in order to reach the green. Keep your second shot to the right and you'll have a more comfortable approach with the pond on your left. Green fees at Prestwick are more than comparable courses like Eagle Valley, but less than StoneRidge. It's a good value for a pleasant golfing morning or afternoon.

There was a big cup and a normal cup on each hole. Different color flags at first, but some holes had two white flags. There was a starter at the first tee. We told him we hadn't played the course before. He didn't inform us about the two pins on each green. Wasn't sure if that was a temporary thing or just normal for the course. Nice layout.

This is a great golf course! The greens are perfect! Elevated tees show you the entire hole. Can play the black tees at 6900 or move up to four others. Water on several holes. Staff is very friendly! Food at Osteria restaurant is excellent, especially the pasta. This is a hidden gem in the Twin Cities!
