Mortonhall golf course has had a long and distinguished history. Formed in 1892, three of golfs great course architects - notably Willie Park, J H Taylor and James Braid ,all contributed to this course's spectacular design.
The first hole at Mortonhall sets the scene with the fairway cutting through a narrow valley called the "Khyber Pass". This leads to the spectacular 2nd tee,with stunning views from its elevated position over the Elfin Pond. By the time you reach the 6th hole you will have observed the old fashioned design of the 6th hole which crosses the fairway of the the 4th.
The ninth is reckoned to be the hardest hole on the course. The extreme dogleg to the right poses players an awkward dilema- do you play it straight and risk running out of fairway -or how close do you get to the trees and inevitable danger.
The back nine offers great holes in a row designed by Hawtree in the 1970's leading to the 16th and Quarry, the only hole remaining from the original 9 holes course.
Mortonhall is characterised by the mature stands of fairways trees in the form of Sycamore, Silver Birch, Scots Pine and the white barked Silver Birch.
