Play Muirfield. Home to the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Muirfield is simply one of the very best golf courses in the world. Host to many Open Championships it is the only course to have hosted the Open (16 times, the most recent in 2013), the Amateur, the Mid Amateur, the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup and the Curtis Cup. When playing Muirfield we always suggest that you take lunch in the clubhouse as some say it as memorable as the course itself.
- Day 6
Play Craigielaw Inspired by the great links courses of Britain, particularly those on land which are less dominated by dunes, Craigielaw is equal to many of the finest examples of such courses some of which are conveniently located nearby in the East Lothian area. Designed by Donald Steel and Co. the course opened in 2001 and in the short period since opening the course has been host to many national events, including the 2006 Scottish Amateur Strokeplay Championship and is to be host to the Qualifying for the 2007 British Seniors Open at Muirfield. With challenging greens cavernous bunkers and spectacular views over the Firth of Forth, the courses of Gullane and out towards Edinburgh and Fife, Craigielaw Golf Club is an experience not to be missed.
- Day 7
Play Gullane The eighteen holes of Gullane No.1 Course were established in 1884. The well maintained greens, links grasses, numerous bunkers and sea breezes make a unique challenge for the serious golfer. The 3rd hole was recently voted one of the top 500 holes in the world by Golf Magazine (USA). The world famous view from the highest point of the Course on the 7th tee across the course and over to Edinburgh, Fife and way beyond is worth the green fee alone. With every hole having its own distinct character, the Course is both memorable and enjoyable .
