Royal Musselburgh Golf Course

Golf Courses

Prestongrange House, Prestonpans, East Lothian, EH32 9RP

    Royal Musselburgh was founded in 1774 and was originally played over the famous nine-hole links course at Levenhall, Musselburgh. In 1926 the move was made to Prestongrange House, Prestonpans.

    The golfing challenge comes on the homeward stretch where a series of par fours are well protected by trees. From the medal tee at the 15th, for example, which is huddled tight beside the trees to the left, only a precision drive will suffice in order to find the rolling fairway. From there a long iron is played over an uphill approach to a tilting green.

    International Membership Package

    The Royal Musselburgh Golf club was founded in 1774, we originally played over the famous 9 hole links course situated at Leavenhall Musselburgh, which is regarded as the oldest golf course in the world. The course was designed by one of the finest golf course architects, five times Open Champion James Braid. It remains today largely as he designed it.

    Royal Musselburgh is the home of a silver cup, known as the “Old Club Cup” dating back to 1774. This is the oldest cup in the world still played for competitively today.

    In 1829 The then officer was instructed to pay more attention to the forming of the golf hole. An instrument for the purpose of creating the hole was purchased. This gave birth to the world’s first hole cutter. The Royal Musselburgh is still in possession of the original Hole Cutter as part of our relics collection.
