Today, Muirfield is a renowned host to major championships, both amateur and professional, international and national, men and ladies - all of which have produced worthy champions. Eleven Amateur Championships have been played over the course and 15 Open Championships.
With the exception of the Championship tees, the course has changed little since 1936 but, in 2008, in conjunction with the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, golf architect Martin Hawtree was commissioned to advise the Club on how best to ensure Muirfield remains a challenge to the world's great golfers. As a result, some amendments are being made before the next Open Championship, scheduled to be played in 2013.
If you enjoy a challenge, and wish to play a classic links course, you can access their Visitor Tee Time Availability facility to check what is available on visitor days, which are Tuesdays and Thursdays. The cost of one round is £195 and if you are feeling really energetic and fancy two rounds in one day, this will set you back £250.
