Muirfield golf course
Muirfield in East Lothian
Many of the world's finest golfers believe that Muirfield is the fairest examination of championship golf among all the great and historic courses of the British Isles. If the definition of fairest is that there are no hidden bunkers, or as many humps and hollows as there are at the Old Course at St Andrews or the various blind shots of Prestwick, for instance, then there can be little argument.
Muirfield - on the outskirts of Gullane - is the home of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, the world's oldest golf club. The course is a hugely demanding test where the dangers are in open view for all to see and the tight fairways require great accuracy off the tee.
The Open Championship has been played an incredible 15 times at Muirfield and past winners of the Claret Jug on the legendary East Lothian links include Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Nick Faldo and Ernie Els. The Open will return to Muirfield in 2013.
