Royal Musselburgh

Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, East Lothian
Length6237 yards

This parkland golf course was designed by the renowned Scottish golf architect James Braid. From some holes you will enjoy views towards Edinburgh and Arthur's Seat.

Royal Musselburgh Golf Club was established in 1774 and members played originally on the old Musselburgh links. The Old Links are now in the middle of the town's horse racing course.

The current golf course is mildly undulating parkland through distinctive avenues of mature trees. The golfing challenge comes on the homeward stretch where a series of par 4s are well protected by trees. One of the most interesting holes is the 14th, 'The Gully', a par 3 where, if you play short, you will encounter a 50-60 foot drop ahead of the green.

The club has the oldest golf trophy still played for competitively anywhere in the world, dating back to 1773. The castellated clubhouse in part dates back to the 12th century and has an interesting collection of golfing memorabilia.
