Course Open

Welcome To Musselburgh Golf Club

The Musselburgh Golf Club was formed in 1938. Having lost the Open Championship when The Hon. Company moved to Muirfield, Musselburgh Town Council decided to build a championship course at Monktonhall.

The Course

The 5 times Open Champion James Braid, who, in his later years became a renowned golf course architect, designed the new course. He designed a championship standard course, which at 6725 yards long is a true test of golf for even the most accomplished golfer.

The Club

Over the years the course has hosted many amateur championships and on two occasions the Scottish Professional Championship. It has the distinction of being a Regional Open Championship Qualifying course for Scotland until 2010 and in 2013 a Local Final Qualifying venue for THE OPEN at Muirfield.


Musselburgh is a very popular club with a total membership of more than 800. There are currently however some vacancies for both Full and 5 Day memberships. Anyone interested in joining the club should click here  to find out more and download an application form.

MGC is a top quality Championship course designed by James Braid and opened in 1938. It has the distinction of being an Open Championship Qualifying course for Scotland until 2010.
