What the club says: Royal Musselburgh Golf Club is at the start of the famous stretch of golf courses on the East Lothian coast, situated to the east of Musselburgh on the B1361, this picturesque parkland course is certainly worth the visit. The Club is the fifth oldest in the world originating at the 9 hole Musselburgh Levenhall links where the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Royal Burgess Golfing Society and Bruntsfield Golf Club also played.

Great Course.

Great Course and very friendly staff. Course in very good condition with a couple of exceptions. Bunkers need a bit work, hardly any sand in most and alot of stones throughout. Rough need a bit work in a couple of places. Can't complain though especially in these circumstances with staff furloughed I'm sure the green keepers are doing the best they can

Nice inland Scottish parkland

A nice inland Scottish parkland design course, very mature trees and rough to avoid, a little tight in places, some lovely shaped holes. A very majestic old fashioned style clubhouse, nice little shop. Very friendly staff and cracking food.

Some interesting holes. Good greens

Forgiving course with some interesting holes. A few too many simple holes for me to give this a Very Good but enough variety to make it an enjoyable round. Particularly if you can get a good deal on green fees.
Definitely favours those who can draw off the tee
Greens in very good condition

Fun finish to Edinburgh swing

Of the 3 courses we played in our Edinburgh swing this was the only inland course, although there were occasional glimpses of the estuary. Course was in good conditions greens played well, club house is rather let down by the extension which is a concrete block next to a mini castle!

A lovely golf course, kept in excellent condition, there are lots of trees lining the fairways which enhance its appearance, and lots of bunkers to catch wayward shots, but the yardage allows all abilities to enjoy the course while requiring accuracy. I would highly recommend a visit here, and will look forward to a return trip.

Sixth oldest course in the world and what a let down,the royal status should be removed,etiquette of golf is none existing,people playing in vests come on.people playing on the wrong fairways no shouts of fore.the greens looked good but were rubbish to putt on,they were totally dead and slow.in my opinion the worst course I have played in Scotland.over played waiting on every tee box.
