East Lothian has a just claim to being the birthplace of golf - the game was played regularly on Musselburgh Links - The Old Course - as far back as 1672. The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, who now play at Muirfield, Gaullane, has records going back to 1744, which makes it the earliest known golf club in the world.

All coupled with friendly clubhouses and affordable green fees. The coastal A198 route, provides easy access for visitors and short journeys between courses.
