Membership offer: Musselburgh Golf Club


Designed by James Braid in 1938, The Musselburgh is a quality test of golf, emphasised by the fact that it was the Open Championship Regional Qualifying course in Scotland until 2010 and the Final Qualifying course for Muirfield in 2013.

To have any hope of conquering it, you must be able to keep the ball in play while still being long off the tee, as the par-71 layout measures 6,725 yards.

Built around a bend of the River Esk, it has mostly flat tree-lined fairways, while the Craigie Burn meanders over some holes, providing players with many different options.


After a promising start with two good par-4s and a fun, short par-3, the 528-yard par-5 fourth requires a fierce tee shot but, in truth, a lot of the holes at the course do, with only two of the par-4s measuring less than 400 yards.

The Musselburgh also offer a six-hole golf academy for those new to the game and for juniors to develop their skills.

The clubhouse has a relaxed atmosphere and is open seven days a week, while there is also in-house catering serving food everyday.
