Golf Course/
Musselburgh

The new course was officially opened by a fourball of James Braid, Percy Alliss, Henry Cotton and Alf Padgham in 1938 and has been the home of The Musselburgh Golf Course ever since.

For 70 years the layout of the course has remained virtually unchanged, a fact, which bears testament to the ability and foresight of its designer. Musselburgh is a top class championship course with a length from the championship tees of a testing 6,725 yards.

Musselburgh Links, The Old Golf Course, an original 'Open Championship' venue, hosting the competition on six occssions between 1874 and 1889.

Built round a bend of the river Esk, it has relatively flat tree-lined yet generous fairways. The Craigie burn meanders over fairways giving golfers the option of laying up or going for the green.

To have any hope of conquering this course you have to be able to keep the ball in play while still being long off the tee. Although it is not easy, it is still a very enjoyable course to play, which is proven by the fact that many visitors return time after time.

For a unique golfing experience, you can hire hickory golf clubs and play the game as it was in The Old Golf Course's heyday.
