Blog 271, 7/18/13 - The Honourable Company Will See You Now

muirfieldWhat a day at the Open Championship. The weather was fantastic and the couse a brilliant test, suitable for a major championship, regardless of what a few whingers were saying about tough pin positions. When playing the Open, you get what you get and don't throw a fit (well, when you play any tournament actually). Muirfield, hosting its 16th Open, is the third home of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, one of Britain's most exclusive golf clubs - the sort that really couldn't care less what you think about it. When I was growing up in Britain (and for decades before that), it was the hardest tee-time to get. It still is pretty tough, but the club has begun to open its gates a bit more often recently and, though you may be regarded as something of a privileged outsider rather than a valued customer whose business is essential to the upkeep of the club/course, you really should go anyway. This course is worth whatever coolness you may encounter from the members.
