What the club says: Musselburgh is a top class championship course designed by James Braid in 1938. The length from the championship tees is a testing 6725 yards and with a par 71, SSS 72 it is a quality test of golf. Built round a bend of the river Esk, it has relatively flat tree-lined yet generous fairways. The Craigie burn meanders over some fairways giving golfers the option of laying up short or going for the green.
To have any hope of conquering this course you have to be able to keep the ball in play while still being long off the tee. Although it is not easy, it is still a very enjoyable course to play, which is proven by the fact that many visitors return time after time

Craigielaw

Fairways and greens excellent.
Wispy grass very long and the result of many lost balls.
Overall, very good

Excellent course with a good variety of holes, tree lined but decent way back so ball of centre have a reasonable chance of being found.

I would like to play the course earlier in the year as the fallen leaves played havoc on the greens, though overall the course is worth a visit.

Great course in great condition

On a visit to Scotland last week I played this course twice. The green keepers do a fantastic job every part of the course was in great condition. It was a great and challenging course to play.

Excellent

After a week of rain, the course was in excellent condition, greens were superb and tremendous drainage on everyone of them. Thoroughly recommended to play.
Clubhouse was very good and friendly staff and customers made you very welcome.

A terrific old school, traditional golf club. Pro shop very welcoming on arrival and very helpful.
The course it's self was lovely, more challenging than it initially looks and in good condition considering recent heavy downpours. Greens very true.
I'd definitely like another crack at it.....
