Muirfield Golf Course
15 miles east of Edinburgh the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers reside. Being intensely private it makes perfect sense to not advertise their club, therefore you will not find Muirfield on any map and no signposts pointing the way!

This is perhaps the most exclusive golf club in the British Isles but once you have your tee time secured you are treated to one of the fairest and most brutally honest tests of championship links. Being an active links on the Open circuit its conditioning is always exemplary.

The course does not have the typical mountainous dunes and relies more on punishing rough and bunkers for protection. Jack Nicklaus describes the course defences as “the most fastidiously built bunkers I have ever seen, the high front walls faced with bricks of turf”. Simply put, if you get into trouble here there is o guarantee you will get out easily.

Tiger Woods stated at the 2002 Open “Muirfield is one of the fairest Open courses. There are no hidden agendas, no tricks”.

Nick Faldo states “In terms of shot values, variety, intricacy and overall strength of the test, Muirfield is out there on its own”.
