The Mussleburgh Racecourse is the second largest in Scotland and has been active since at least 1777, when opened as part of the Royal Caledonian Hunt. The course is 2km long and hosts both flat racing and National Hunt meetings. Quite uniquely, in the middle of the loop, there is the nine-holes Musselburgh Links golf course, dating from at least 1672, and home to the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club established in 1774. Attracting tens of thousands of visitors per year, the Musselburgh Racecourse is home to some of the premier fixtures of the Scottish sports calendar.
