Overview
More
The town of Musselburgh has a long association with the game of golf having hosted The Open Championship on the links course on six occasions in the 1870's and 1880's. The town can also boast having five Open Champions, who between them, won eleven championships - more than any other town.When The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers moved to Muirfield from their home at the 9 hole Links Course in 1891, they took with them the venue for the Open. In an attempt to re-establish its association with the Open, Musselburgh Town Council decided to build an 18 hole championship golf course in the town. Unfortunately it was not until the 1930's that suitable land became available and the 5 times Open Champion James Braid, who, in his later years became a renowned golf course architect, was commissioned to design the new course at Monktonhall. He designed a championship standard course, which at 6725 yards long is a true test of golf for even the most accomplished golfer. The new course was officially opened by a fourball of James Braid, Percy Alliss, Henry Cotton and Alf Padgham on 10th May 1938 and has been the home of The Musselburgh Golf Course ever since.For 70 years the layout of the course has remained virtually unchanged, a fact which bears testament to the ability and foresight of its designer. During these years the course has hosted many amateur championships and on two occasions the Scottish Professional Championship. Musselburgh has been appointed as one of the venues for Local Final Qualifying along with Gullane, Dunbar & North Berwick, when the Open returns to Muirfield in 2013.
