- 43 Murrayfield Road, Edinburgh, EH12 6EU
Murrayfield Golf Club’s creation in 1896 was part of the late nineteenth century explosion of interest in golf in Edinburgh which saw many private clubs created. The Murrayfield area was not as heavily populated as it is today and the bulk of the early membership came from the Haymarket district, the New Town and Western suburbs. Many of the founder members of the Club were already heavily involved in golf in East Lothian. No doubt they helped to create a course conveniently situated near their homes and businesses so that their love of this increasingly popular game could be pursued more easily. And while they played over the new fairways which stretched up the lower slopes of Corstorphine Hill, they could catch a glimpse of East Lothian and their other courses!
