    One of the best golf courses in the world, host venue to The Open Championship on more than 15 occasions as well as having hosted numerous other championships, both amateur and professional, Muirfield golf club is an absolute must-play on a golf vacation to Scotland.

    Recognised as being the oldest golf course in the world, the history of the course stretches as far back as the late 18th century and it was here where the ‘Gentlemen Golfers of Leigh’ drew up the first official rules of golf. It was these 13 rules which formed the basis of the modern rules golf abides by today.

    The course moved site on a couple of occasions and it was only in 1891 when the club finally settled in its current location, on the stretch of East Lothian coastline where so many other renowned links courses are dotted.

    Nestled between two other top-class links golf clubs, Archerfield and Gullane, Muirfield has superb panoramic views across the Firth of Forth estuary. The course was designed by the renowned Old Tom Morris but most recently in 2010 and 2011, was upgraded by golf course architect Martin Hawtree to ensure Muirfield remained competitive for the world’s best golfers.

    Narrow long fairways, deep pot-bunkers, small greens, thick rough and strong winds make Muirfield a tough links to tackle, and only the best golfers should take on these celebrated fairways. The iconic clubhouse, which sits assertively behind the 18th green, oozes tradition and class. Each public room has fabulous views out across the course visitors will rejoice in the blend of old-school charm and historical memorabilia. There are few better places in the world of golf to relax and enjoy an alcoholic drink.

    A golf vacation to Scotland is something every golfer should experience, but to play a round of golf at Muirfield, ‘The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers’, is a once in a life time opportunity. We couldn’t recommend it enough.
