The Design of Muirfield Village Golf Club
Muirfield Village Golf Club was designed by Jack Nicklaus. The golf course sits on 220 acres, which includes an 11-acre driving range. On Memorial Day, May 27, 1974, the course was officially dedicated with an exhibition match between Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf. Nicklaus won with a 66, which stood as the course record until 1979.
The layout presently plays at 7,265 yards with 75 bunkers and water hazards on 11 holes. The course annually hosts the PGA Memorial tournament.
