Musselburgh Links is known as the world's oldest playing golf course.
It is equally well known for the fact that the 9 hole course is sited in the middle of a busy racecourse.
Ideally located on the outskirts of Edinburgh, and on the road to the iconic golfing destination of East Lothian, Musselburgh Links offers golfers a glimpse of history.
This is the site of the Open Championship where they played the 9 hole loop four times in a day for the Claret Jug.
The Open was held here 6 times. Travelling Golfers can go back in time and play the old course with hickory clubs.
In my opinion this is a great start to any golfing trip to the area
The Travelling Golfer can arrange group golfing tours to Scotland. Some suggested itineraries can be found at Great Golfing Destinations. However we would be happy to tailor a tour to the requirements of your group. Please note also that Musselburgh Old Links is an optional additional course to visit on The Open Rota Tour- a hosted golf tournament played over all the current Open Championship courses
