Be part of a historic moment in golf as Muirfield gets ready to host the best golfers in the world at the AIG Women's Open

It’s just three months until the world’s best golfers take to the links at Muirfield for the Championship’s debut.

Muirfield has a prestigious history of hosting major championships, having held The Open on 16 occasions. It also hosted The Curtis Cup in 1952 and 1984 as well as the Vagliano Trophy in 1963 and 1975.

The AIG Women’s Open was played behind closed doors at Royal Troon, when it was played there for the first time in 2020 and last year, due to Covid restrictions, crowds were limited to a maximum of 8,000 spectators per day.

As we look forward to a historic moment in women’s golf and a championship without restrictions, here are four reasons why you should attend the 2022 AIG Women’s Open.

The field

There’s no doubting that as one of the five women’s majors, the event boasts the strongest field of players that you will be able to watch on British soil all year.

Last year’s AIG Women’s Open had 144 players from 32 countries, with 29 Major champions and worldwide winners of more than 400 titles on the LPGA, JLPGA and Ladies European Tour.

Current World Number one Jin Young Ko will make a welcome return to the Championship after deciding not to travel due to Covid restrictions last year. We hope that Nelly Korda, 2021 KPMG Women’s PGA Champion, will be back to full fitness to take on the links. Homegrown favourites and Solheim Cup stars Charley Hull, Leona Maguire and Georgia Hall, 2018 AIG Women’s Open Champion, are sure to draw in the crowds.

It’s not just the professionals teeing it up. Seven amateurs were part of the field last year and most will still remember the unbelievable performance from Scotland’s Louise Duncan. The crowd were inspired by her performance and we’re sure the home crowd will be hoping for more again this year.


Muirfield is located in East Lothian, just east of Edinburgh on the East Coast of Scotland. There are two major airports, Edinburgh and Glasgow, within two hours of the course.

With Edinburgh just 20 miles from Muirfield, a 35-minute car journey, there are a range of hotels, B&Bs and self-catering accommodation available, ideal for your stay during the AIG Women's Open.

There is free public parking on-site and the nearest train station is North Berwick which is approximately four miles from Muirfield.

You may be interested to extend your stay in Scotland beyond the Championship. Maybe some sightseeing around Edinburgh, visiting Edinburgh Zoo with family or grabbing some tickets for the Edinburgh Fringe that starts on Friday, August 5.

Alternatively, you could tackle Catriona Matthew’s home course at North Berwick, or one of the other 30 golf clubs within the Muirfield area.

The location gives fans the opportunity to make their trip to Scotland a truly unforgettable experience.

Family atmosphere
