Murrayfield Golf Club is situated within 1.5 miles of the very centre of Edinburgh, one of Scotland’s most famous golfing destinations and one of the world’s top tourist attractions. In fact, you can get a taxi from Edinburgh Castle to Murrayfield Golf club within 10 minutes and then get to the Airport in around 15 minutes. Speaking of which, the views towards Edinburgh Castle from several of the holes at Murrayfield, are simply sublime and not matched anywhere else in the city.
Murrayfield itself is a triumph of traditional golf course design. At under 6000 yards you could be forgiven for thinking this was an easy course, but that would be a gross underestimation! With wonderful tight fairways and fast, smooth greens, this is a challenge for any golfer without being too long or unfairly difficult. It is simply one of the most enjoyable courses in Edinburgh.
From Edinburgh, the spectacular “Scottish Golf Coast” can be accessed within 30 minutes drive, where gems such as Muirfield, Gullane, Archerfield and Renaissance await those on a longer golf tour.
