6 reviews of Musselburgh Golf Club
Played this course on Monday 8 June 2009. We arrived after playing the old links in the morning and had lovely sunshine. Clubhouse has great views over first n last holes. The course itself i found very enjoyable, no two holes were the same and presentation was really good not bettered at many other courses I have played so a thumbs up to the green staff. I have to say the greens were absolutely fantastic, picture perfect and spot on to putt on, I would say the holes through the tunnel where railway line are slightly better than the ones prior to this but that does not detract at all to the quality of this course, I would definatly play again and if I had to choose between this and Royal Musselbrough which I also loved in the area i would find it hard to choose! Get yourself there a joy to play and you wont be disappointed
myself and 2 friends played at monkton hall on 9th June, 2009.
when you first drive into the car park the clubhouse looks a little dated but we were given a warm welcome. we had a quick bite to eat (my 2 friends had a chicken burger and they would testify that the bread was a little on the hard side) and a quick pint before moving into the pro shop where we paid our green fees.
the first hole sort of sets the tone for the rest of the day with some LONG par 4's. i felt that a lot of the time i would hit a good drive followed by a rescue wood or a 3 wood. i just personally felt i didnt get a chance to use my irons off the fairway as much as i would have like to.
the first 7 holes are just run of the mill holes in my opinion and nothing out of the ordinary. however, once you get through the gate and onto the 8th tee box the course has a more "established" feel to it with some very testing holes. you can see why it is an open qualifiying course with the length of some of the holes. its a long walk!!!
summing up i would say the 8 holes you play through the gates help save the course from mediocracy. for the £17.50 green fee we paid on the open fairway scheme its not that expensive for a round but i certainly wouldnt rush to go back and play the course again. i would much rather prefer to play royal musselburgh which is only a couple of miles away and in my opinion is a far superior course.
Played this course on 04/07/05 with three friends and a really good test of golf. Neither wonder it's an Open qualifier course. Very testing holes, greens are in good condition, clubhouse and food are second to none and a thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all. Paid a lot more for a lot less golf course than this whilst on holiday there.
Our society played in May and thoroughly enjoyed our day. We were given a warm welcome in the pro shop and enjoyed the food in the clubhouse, although changing facilities for visitors are a bit cramped. The course was in excellent condition despite recent heavy rain. There are plenty of long par 4's to test us higher handicappers and you need to keep it straight to avoid the punishing long rough which swallowed up a large number of balls. The greens are well protected too, as one of our party will testify. He had a "Hamlet" moment in a bunker on the 17th in front of an amused groundsman who was waiting to cut the green. I'd recommend it if you're in the Edinburgh area.
I recently played at Monktonhall as part of a society day and have to say that it was a great day. Not only was the course challenging, (it's long for us high handicappers), it was in fantastic condition. The greens were the fastest and truest I have played on this season. Despite the extremely strong and cold wind I had a good round and the warm welcome in the clubhouse rounded it all off.
The best non-links course in the lothians which has been certified by it being selected as an Open qualifying course. The course is always in excellent condition and a must play if visiting the area. Hit the 18th in two and you can go to the 19th very happy.
