Musselburgh Golf Club
The Musselburgh Golf Club offers a great day of Midlothian golf for players who want a challenging game played on holes with interesting names, such the as the third ("Whins"), the ninth ("Burn"), and the 16th ("Fiery").
Kick things off on the Musselburgh Golf Club's first hole, "Willows," a 377-yard par-4 treat that sets the model for the rest of the day. The monster hole is the fourth, "Signal Box," which is a 528-yard par 5. Close out the game on the 474-yard par-4 18th: "Old Bob."
Head to the clubhouse to retrace the beginning and end, with its view of the first and 18th fairways. For those wishing to stay later into the evening, there are two well stocked bars

Another enjoyable visit to Monktonhall on a glorious autumn afternoon! The best word to to describe this place is grand- lengthy holes, big fairways and surrounded by huge tall trees. The test of golf is both tough and fair, some eye watering yardage par 4s are well compensated by wide fairways, all 4 par 3s play under the 200 yard mark too which I think is great (big thumbs down for long soulless par 3s). Highlight holes for me were the par 3 11th braids best which I could hit balls into all day and the par 4 17th Kirk another outstanding hole. This is a course where you cannot fake it, it demands quality shots and you will use every club in the bag. A course where only 10 handicap and down will fully appreciate
Played 1st November ok value £25 a round in winter but wouopay £100 in summer
Bit long for a me but perfect for better players. Great price to play an open qualifier. Course was in great condition. Friendly welcome by all staff.
First time playing the course and was impressed with the layout and the varying hole lengths. Greens were generally good apart from a few which were looked like they were recovering from vandalism.
Lovely well kept course
The fact it was a beautiful autumn afternoon helped but a really well laid out course with some picturesque holes and in excellent condition for late October.
Great day out
Course was in great condition even although it had been heavy rain the night before. Probably about off the greens had been tined but still playable.
Well worth the money
Golf at Musselburgh GC
The course was in good condition but unfortunately the friendly course staff were busy trying to fix the greens as some low life had sprayed weedkiller on half of the greens. The greens that were left untouched had a good strong consistent surface.
The course itself is well bunkered and the bunkers themselves are some of the best I’ve seen and played from. The greens are on the smaller side so accuracy is key.
Overall had a very enjoyable round.
Lovely course. We arrived early and was able to go out early before our booked tee off.. Very nice club house and friendly staff.
Lovely course, but lots of bunkers especially surrounding the par 3s.
Course was in good condition with regard to fairways & bunkers. The greens were ok, a bit slow and bumpy however probably more reflects time of year. Staff & members were friendly. Nice parkland course, long and reasonable challenge
First time delight
Loved this course today
Generous wide fairways always helps me!
Great looking holes - every one different and nearly all defined by mature pine trees
Greens need some growth but until then quite sandy and bumpy
Will be back for sure
Back to old ground
It has been almost 20 years since I last played here as a member. While I knew of the "new" proshop, I found little else had changed. On the course I could see improvements in the drainage has done it's job , with the fairways quite lush. My only negative point is the greenside bunkers were hard pan with little or no sand and lots of small stones.
I will be in contact with the club in hope to hold a Scottish Seniors event here sometime in the future.
Really enjoyed the course for the first time playing there. Unfortunate that it was mostly frozen when we tee'd off but that just the luck of taking an early tee time. Nice mixture of long and short holes and the right level of challenge.
Course started to thaw out as the sun came out and will definitely be back next year in the spring to take on the course again.
From first entering the pro shop to leaving the clubhouse was an absolute pleasure. Very friendly and extremely helpful Pro. Slipping one of our bookings back as they were delayed in traffic. Very friendly bar staff with ford available prior to playing and an extensive menu afterwards. Onto the course and it is a gem. Beautiful tree lined holes. Fairways well manicured, greens excellent. Rolling very true. The remarkable thing about this course is that all the holes being protected by the established trees you never heard a single shout of fore. After a couple of refreshments we were told to have a safe journey and asked would we come back to which the group were unanimous in saying without a doubt. Golf in Scotland is becoming expensive but this course is a must for golfers of all ability.
