Happy Memorial weekend everyone.
Muirfield Village Golf Club was the dream of Nicklaus and Desmond Muirhead, they acquired the land back in 1966 but construction didn’t begin until July 1972. The golf course, which is situated on 220 acres and was officially opened for play on Memorial Day 1974 with an exhibition match between Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf.
Muirfield Village currently sits in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Courses,” at number 15. After recent changes the course now measures 7,221 and has 71 bunkers and water comes into play on 11 holes.
