About The Royal Musselburgh

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 sixth 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.

Pride of place in the Royal Musselburgh is the Old Club Cup dating back to 1774, the oldest trophy still competitively played for in the world.


Located at the beginning of the famous Scotland’s Golf Coast Royal Musselburgh GC is a stunning example of its architect James Braids work. Not only does the club boast an 18 hole course but also a 300 yard plus driving range, short game area and six hole short game course.
