Lets Make Musselburgh Great Again
We were delighted to be asked earlier this year to work with a local property developer Blue Thistle Limited who have ambitious plans to turn Musselburgh Links Golf Course back to its original Open Championship condition. Golf has been played continuously on Musselburgh Links since the middle ages, making this the oldest ‘continuously played’ course in world golf. Blue Thistle, under the banner ‘Let’s Make Musselburgh Great Again’ www.letsmakemusselburghgreatagain.com has secured private equity investment to the tune of £10million to retro-refurbish the nine-hole course back to the golden age of 19thcentury golf, where it played host to six Open Championships between 1874 and 1889.
We secured global media coverage on this story. Here is a snap shot on how the story unfolded across the press, radio and television.
