Three New Views of Prestwick Golf Club
This angle is looking towards the clubhouse with the station on the left and the town at the back right.
The first ever Open Championship was held here in 1860 and was won by Willie Park of Musselburgh with a score of 174 over 36 holes. (3 rounds of 12 holes.)
A cairn just out of shot to the right marks the original first tee, a par 6 of 578 yards, the green of which is still in use as the present day 16th.
The building with the curved white roof in the top right distance is Atlantic House, the CAA's control centre for the north Atlantic region.
To take these photos at all permission in advance was obtained from air traffic control (the CAA's Directorate of Airspace Policy) for which, as always, many thanks.
A panorama of the area with the clubhouse tucked into the right corner.
This image is in total just over 12,000 pixels wide and will easily print at 40 inches wide (a metre) or more. Prestwick airport with the main runway can be seen in the left distance.
These are details from the above panorama.
On the left is a plane landing at the airport nearby. On the right is Atlantic House in more detail.
The images shown on this website are reduced and compressed .jpg versions of much larger images.
These versions are ideal for showing the quality and character of 197 aerial photography's work.
Full-sized files for licensed commercial use are generally of at least 5,000 pixels wide and as you
would expect they all show a great deal more detail and clarity than website-quality versions.
