SGA_Nature_logo

Founded in 1892, Mortonhall is the oldest course in the City of Edinburgh over which golf is still played 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. We welcome visitors to our course and to use our superb clubhouse throughout the week.

Taking out as many gorse stumps as possible around 16th tee today. Not a very glamorous job for a Monday but it needs to be done so they don't come back.

Robo-cut hard at work on our practice area . Wind and the rain didn’t stop Colin .

Some fantastic work has been carried out this week since we have had the RoboCut in on hire. We have done some much needed work at holes 2, 8, 12, 16, 17 and 18. Colin has even managed to unearth the old tiger tee at the 8th, which is nice.

Course Closed. We had a fair covering of snow last night, so sadly the course is closed on safety and unplayable grounds.

The temperatures went deep last night, so it's a bit crunchy out here. However it's a lovely sunny day.

We've been updating so many risk assessments and safe working practices this week I'm terrified to leave the shed without wearing a high vis jacket and hard hat. #SafetyIsCool

We are still on winter green's today even though the frost has thawed on the surface but the frost is still in the soil beneath. Below shows a diagram of what is going on currently underneath the greens. Hopefully this will help explain why the main greens are still off.

Congratulations goes out to one of our greenstaff Craig. After a week long course, he passed his practical and theory test yesterday. So he is now a fully qualified chainsaw operator.

Clearing vegetation next to 16th tee and we find this deep in the gorse. I'm guessing someone didn't find the fairway with their tee shot. #FindersKeepers #Ebay

A bit frosty out there today, so we're back out doing the glamour job of clearing along path edges. Start of 18th walkway nearly complete.
