Muirfield is an unbelievable experience that every golfer should treat themselves to. I played it on Dec 6, 2007 for the winter green fee of £90 and got lucky with the weather. The club oozes history and tradition but was not nearly as stuffy as I had expected. In fact, we received a very warm welcome. It was surreal to see such a fantastic course virtually deserted. The lay-out is magnificent and it was in good condition for the time of year. It's very much a thinker's course; the rough is to be avoided at all costs and the bunkering is superb. Its collection of par 3's is particularly good. It is not visually stunning like North Berwick just down the road but for sheer class and quality it is difficult to beat.
