Muirfield Golf Course, Scotland

Muirfield, Scotland Golf Courses

This was a boggy piece of low lying links, developed by The Honourable Company as a golf course in 1891. They even had  Tom Morris come down from St Andrews to help them   mark out a rough course.

Soon after this, David Plenderleith did most of the detailed work. And his work was later refined by Harry Colt and Tom Simpson. The final development of the course was done by Robert Maxwell  in the 1920s and the Muirfield course has remained essentially the same since then

Muirfield has now become one of the top half dozen courses in the world. It has hosted 14 Open Championships. Winners have included many of the all time greats of golf.   Braid, Vardon, Hagen, Cotton, Nicklaus, Player, Trevino, Watson and Faldo
