How MUirfield Booking Buddy Works


Booking a Muirfield tee time – summary of what you need to know

Information taken from Muirfield’s web site ( ) and summarised below:


A Muirfield tee time is a hot ticket.

  • Visitors are welcome on Tuesday and Thursdays (except Public Holidays).
  • For the peak golfing season May through September tee times are limited.
    In fact, Muirfield is pretty much sold out for 2022 and 2023.
  • Visitor tee times bookings for 2024 will open in mid-March 2023. Tee times will sell out quickly on a first come, first served basis. All peak season times for 2023 sold out in a matter of hours.

So you need to plan NOW and book as soon as the booking window opens.

There are 22 weeks in the peak season of May to September 2024

  • Each week, Muirfield visitor tee times are available on 2 days, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Excluding Bank Holidays that is 44 days of visitor tee times.
