Day 2 Play Muirfield
Muirfield is home to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (HCEG)- the world’s oldest golf club being formed in 1744. Back in those days the members played over Leith Links. In 1891 HCEG moved and the course at Muirfield was opened for play. Designed by Old Tom Morris it was originally 16 holes. In 1928 Harry Colt and Tom Simpson altered the layout to create the masterpiece, and highly unusual links, it is today. It is the first course with concentric rings of nine holes the outward nine run clockwise round the edge and the inward nine anticlockwise sitting inside the outward nine. This layout ensures the wind hits you from all directions.
Host to 15 Opens most recently in 2013 where Phil Mickleson was declared Champion Golfer. It’s also played host to the 1973 Ryder Cup won by USA. Muirfield is ranked 4th in Great Britain and 9th in the world.
Day 3 Play North Berwick West Links
The West Links at North Berwick GC is a remarkable golf course located on The Firth of Forth with stunning views across to Craigleith Island and Bass Rock, a huge granite outcrop that is home to 10% of the world’s population of Atlantic Gannets. Formed in 1832 it is the 13th oldest golf club in the world and the 3rd oldest course still playing over its original fairways. The other two being Musselburgh Old and St Andrew ‘s Old.
