No 14 – Muirfield

A 16-time host to The Open and venue for the AIG Women’s Open in 2022, Muirfield’s illustrious history is well known. Indeed, it is consistently ranked as one of the finest courses in the world, such is its overall quality from first hole to last. Golf was first played at Muirfield in 1891 on 16 holes laid out by Old Tom, which was extended to 18 holes for The Open the following year. Situated near Gullane along the Firth of Forth, it is the home of The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, the oldest society of golfers in the world. In 1928, further course revisions improved this respected venue yet further.
