This web site introduces you to one of the oldest clubs in golf and its world famous course. In the pages that follow you can learn of the Club’s colourful history from its first beginnings in Leith in 1744 to its later move to Musselburgh and finally in 1891 to Muirfield in East Lothian.

Today Muirfield is a renowned host to major championships amateur and professional, international and national, men and ladies – all of which have produced worthy champions of whom more later. Eleven Amateur Championships have been played over the course and 16 Open Championships.

Visitors to this website can experience the unique character of the course by watching a short video of Muirfield. With the exception of the Championship tees, the course has changed little since 1936 but, in 2008, in conjunction with the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, golf architect Martin Hawtree was commissioned to advise the Club on how best to ensure Muirfield remains a challenge to the world’s great golfers.

If you enjoy a challenge, and wish to play a classic links course, please access our Visitor Tee Time Availability facility to check what is available on our visitor days – Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We look forward to welcoming you at Muirfield.


Development Project

In January 2018, Muirfield embarked on an ambitious and exciting project to redevelop our Clubhouse and Starter’s Facility. We expect to complete the project in March 2019. The golf course will remain unaffected, but you will observe construction traffic and scaffolding in and around the Club’s property. Within the clubhouse, there will be some minor alterations to the washroom areas in the gentlemen’s locker room. A temporary ladies’ locker room is located near the 1st tee. The lounge and dining room will not be affected until October 2018.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to welcoming you to Muirfield.


We welcome you as a possible future visitor to Muirfield. Visitor Days are Tuesdays and Thursdays (excluding Public Holidays).
