What you might not associate with horse racing is the crack of metal on urethane, shouts of ‘fore,’ ‘great shot,’ or occasionally ‘you Muppet.’ This incongruous mix of sounds only happens when you combine racehorses and golf courses.
Let’s take a look at five other locations where golf is played within the inner rails of a racecourse.

Famous Racecourses with Golf courses on-site!
Newcastle upon Tyne, England, UK
Newcastle Racecourse is located in High Gosforth Park. It is home to the Northumberland Plate Day, a horse race that takes place each year in late June or early July. Popularly known as the ‘Pitmen’s Derby,’ a nod to the local miners, it’s the final race of the three-day-long Northumberland Plate Festival.
At two miles and 56 yards long and open to thoroughbred horses aged three years or older, the race is worth £150,000. It attracts a diverse crowd, usually dressed to the nines, to enjoy a day at the races.
Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland, UK
Musselburgh Racecourse is located in the Millhill area of Musselburgh, close to the River Esk. It provides year-round racing action and is known for its Sensational 6 race days, including New Years Day, Scottish Festival Trials Weekend, Easter Saturday, Ladies Day, The Summer Finale weekend, and The Edinburgh Cup.
A few of the nine holes at Musselburgh Links were shortened when the racecourse was built around it, way back in the early 1800s. The Old Golf Course, which crosses the racetrack a few times, claims to be the oldest in the world.
Dublin, Ireland, UK
Built in 1888, the Leopardstown Racecourse is located just south of Dublin city centre. The racecourse plays host to the famous Christmas Festival, Dublin Racing Festival, Bulmers Live at Leopardstown, and Longines Irish Champions Weekend.
The Leopardstown Golf Centre, with its 18-hole golf course, 74-bay floodlit driving range, and 500m² floodlit all-weather putting and chipping area, is situated in the heart of the famous race track.
