Murrayfield Golf Club is only 1.5 miles from the very centre of Edinburgh, one of Scotland’s most famous golfing destinations and one of the world’s top tourist attractions. It will take you 10 minutes by taxi from Edinburgh Castle to Murrayfield Golf club or 15 minutes from Edinburgh Airport. The views towards Edinburgh Castle from several of the holes at Murrayfield, are simply sublime and not matched anywhere else in the city.
The course is next to the world famous Murrayfield Stadium and beside Edinburgh Zoo. It is one of the few courses in the world where you can hear lions roaring and gibbons singing as you play!
Murrayfield 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 to underestimate it. 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.
The spectacular “Scottish Golf Coast” is 30 minutes drive from Edinburgh , where gems such as Muirfield, Gullane, Archerfield and Renaissance await those on a longer golf tour.
If you enjoy great views, in a wonderful, relaxed setting and a golf course that is challenging but fair and manageable, then Murrayfield should be on your shortlist. We have a reputation at Murrayfield for some of the best fairways found anywhere. You often feel like you are walking on fine carpets, and the greens will equal your expectations, often running between 10 and11 on the STIMP testing. But beware, the greens have subtle borrows and breaks, so putting on these fast, smooth surfaces takes precision and good touch.
The course is here for all to enjoy, regardless of ability, as there is a challenge for every level. And, the course is continually being upgraded to meet the standards of the modern golfer, so every year we make small but appropriate adjustments to the bunkers and fairways.
Our clubhouse offers a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, with a warm welcome and good food 7 days a week.
