Muirfield in Scotland is the course of “The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers”, the world’s oldest golf club. It’s an architectural masterpiece and a layout that Jack Nicklaus thoroughly admires. His admiration turned into a love affair when he won the 1966 British Open at Muirfield and he decided to realise his dream by designing and naming his home-town course after the historic British Open venue.

“I set out to build not only an outstanding golf course for every level of player, but a magnificent course for watching a tournament… I thought the Masters was a great thing for golf and that I’d like to do the same thing in Columbus.” Commented Jack. Muirfield Village Golf Club officially opened for play on Memorial Day (27th May 1974) with an exhibition match between big Jack and Tom Weiskopf. Needless to say Jack won with an impressive six-under par 66, a course record that stood until 1979. But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #176 (The Majors 2015: The Thrilling Battle for Golf’s Greatest Trophies)

Golf Books #176 (The Majors 2015: The Thrilling Battle for Golf's Greatest Trophies)The stage is set for the 2015 Majors to be one of the most fascinating golfing years in decades, sure to be analysed and talked about for years to come. This will be the year when an emerging new generation, led by the super-talented Rory McIlroy, face off against long-established names like Tiger Woods, who is returning from injury.

McIlroy faced big personal challenges off the course, and Woods desperately wants to narrow in on Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 Major trophies – but he has to win four to catch up, and he hasn’t won one since 2008. And there will be no shortage of captivating storylines as Bubba Watson, the flamboyant American, prepares to defend his title.

Can the self-styled left-hander claim a third Green Jacket or will it be another lefty, Phil Mickelson, who slips his arms back into this the most coveted golfing garment? Of the younger generation, 21-year-old Jordan Spieth, who was runner up last year, or Rickie Fowler, who has finished second in his last three majors, could both mount memorable challenges. But wait, there’s more…

Little wonder that this incredible resort course received accolade after accolade for being one of the finest golf gems in the Pacific.
