Mortonhall Golf Club
Founded in 1892, Mortonhall Golf Club is the oldest course in the City of Edinburgh and is regarded as one of Scotland's premier clubs.
With its immaculate greens and fairways, lined with mature trees and whin-covered outcrops the course is a superb championship test of 6530 yards, boasting unrivalled scenic views across Edinburgh, the Firth of Forth and the Pentland Hills.
The club has hosted the Scottish Amateur Stroke Play, Scottish Youth Tournaments and in 2017 the Scottish Girls Under 16’s. Only 3 miles from the West End of Princes Street, Mortonhall Golf Course is a must for any keen golfer visiting the historic City of Edinburgh and offers some of the best golf in Scotland.
Three famous golfing figures left their architectural mark on Mortonhall during its formative years, Willie Park Junior, J H Taylor and James Braid. When an additional 30 acres were purchased in 1975, Fred W. Hawtree, the renowned course designer, was commissioned to layout several new holes and upgrade all the others.
Mortonhall is rightly regarded as one of the best parkland courses in the Lothians with many holes characterised by mature Silver Birch, Pine, Fir, and Sycamore and cherry trees that define wide, open fairways, leading to large, beautifully tended greens. In recent years, Mackenzie & Ebert completed a major renovation ensuring the course remains fit for purpose for many years to come.
