Musselburgh Golf Club overview
Established in 1938, near Scotland’s historic capital of Edinburgh, Musselburgh Golf Club is an outstanding James Braid parkland layout. Set around the River Esk and Craigie Burn, with large tree-lined fairways, this relatively flat course is a welcome alternative to the classic links found on Scotland’s Golf Coast. A number of professional and amateur tournaments have been hosted on Musselburgh Golf Course over the years, including Final Qualifying for the 2013 Open Championship.
Excellent Clubhouse facilities include an extensive lounge and bar that overlooks the 1st and 18th greens with panoramic views to further parts of the course, and with 2 separate practice areas along with a short par 3 course, you have great options pre and post round.
