350th Anniversary at Musselburgh Old Course

Yesterday, 2nd March 2022, marked the 350th Anniversary of golf first being documented as having been played on Musselburgh Old Course.

On that day, Sir John Foulis, of Ravelston, wrote :

1672   Mar 2 Lost at Golfe at Musselboorgh with Gosford, Lyon etc .. .. £3 5s 0d

This is believed to be the oldest game of golf ever recorded, on a course that is still in existence and actively played upon.

Many thanks to Sky Sports, Lewine Mair, Martin Dempster, Peter Bourhill and others who were here to cover our event.
