prestwick golf
Old Tom Morris, 1851

This host to 24 Open Championships (including the first 12) features an irresistible combination of quirk and muscle. The lumpiest/bumpiest ground is near the clubhouse and yields such marvels as the 1st with the stonewall and railroad line hard down the right of the fairway, the Narrows 15th and the famous Alps 17th. Meanwhile, a brawny collection of two-shotters dominates the stretch from 6-10. Add all the different asks together and you have a historic course like no other. The more you travel, the more you appreciate Prestwick’s unique charms. (Photo: David Cannon/Getty Images)
