The course and facilities

Muirfield Golf Club opened in 1891. Built for The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, which was established almost 150 years earlier and is the world’s oldest verifiable organised golf club. The private club has a stunning 18-hole links course, designed by the renowned Scottish golfer, Old Tom Morris. Set out in two rings of 9 holes, one going clockwise and the other anti-clockwise, this is an unusual layout and was the first of its kind! As multi-time host of The Open Championship and ranked amongst the best courses in the world, Muirfield is on many a golfer’s bucket list.

The Clubhouse sits behind the 18th green and houses the spectacular dining room, the smoking room and locker rooms. Treasures from the club’s long history are on display. Here, you can relax, enjoy refreshments and browse the range of merchandise for sale. There is also outdoor seating with wonderful views of the course.
