A Greenside Chat: The Story of the First Club to Host The Open ~ Prestwick Golf Club

Given that ordinarily, we would be in the midst of a Major week of links golf with The Open, sometimes referred to as The British Open or The Open Championship, it only seems fitting that our guest for this week’s Greenside Chat is Ken Goodwin, longtime Secretary of Prestwick Golf Club. Ken shares some of his fondest memories at Prestwick and helps us discover some of the mystique that surrounds the first ever Club to have hosted The Open (1860).

Here’s a map of where around the world we’ve taken our Greenside Chats.
