What the club says: A clockwise outward half encases an anticlockwise inward nine, an arrangement that ensures that players have to make incessant adjustment for wind direction. Muirfield is the only course to have hosted the Open (15 times, the most recent in 2002), the Amateur, the Mid Amateur, the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup and the Curtis Cup.

The complete package

It is the complete package. The setting, the welcome received, to the facilities, the course and a meal afterwards in the clubhouse and a drink on the terrace. Pure class and a chance to play where greats of the game have played.

Superb condition

A wonderful, fair golf course in superb condition which, played off the back tees, is a tremendous test. Some wonderful views of the Forth. The atmosphere is firmly traditional but very welcoming and friendly.

Playing an iconic course is always a pleasure, on a fair weather day on the East coast of Scotland it's even better.

There were a lot of building works going on which detracted from the overall experience. Also, it seems as if everyone was forces to tee off early - resulting in the course being empty (or nearly) in the afternoon.

Worth a visit - if you can get a discounted tee-time.

The Dishonourable Company

Poor experience at Muirfield. They don't try very hard to conceal the fact that visitors are a nuisance the members could do without. Was playing in the evening and was told that use of the (empty) range pre-round wasn't afforded to 'evening guests'. The website makes no mention of evening guest being treated any differently when it explains that visitors can use all the practice facilities.
The course itself was in terrific condition but I was underwhelmed by the layout. Lots of good holes but lacked anything particularly memorable. I played Turnberry earlier in the year and the layout at Muirfield isn't even close to the new Turnberry. Plus the welcome and overall experience at Turnberry was outstanding versus a very poor level of welcome and service at Muirfield. If paying visitors are so much of a nuisance perhaps the Honourable Company shouldn't allow guests as treating people paying their hard earned money like this is contemptible.

Magnificent Course

Played the course on a great day in Dec 2016 (yes, December in Scotland!) Course condition was great. Greens were impeccable. I've seen and heard the bad press, but the hospitality we received was also excellent. A complete golfing day out.

This is by a country mile the best course in the british Isles and in the top five in the world.

Hard but fair, with the best opening and finishing holes in golf.

Open past winners say it all about the hallowed turf, Vardon, Braid, Hagen, Cotton, Player, Nicklaus, Trevino, Watson, Faldo and Els. This list is a who's who of our great game.

Must play before you die!!!!!!
