Course Improvement Project - Phase 2

Last year (2018) saw the start of an exciting new project for Mortonhall – the modernisation and reduction of our 59 bunkers to 44. The positioning of many of our bunkers had been rendered irrelevant by modern technology and the bunkers themselves needed extensive work. Phase 1 of our course improvement works began in mid-September 2018 and holes 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 16, 17 and 18 plus some work on a green side bunker on 15 was completed by the end of November 2018. By March 2019 the full course was back in full play. In all that period there were 18 holes of play available at all times for our golfers

Phase 2 of our project began on 16th September 2019 and our contractor Golflink have returned to complete the work they stated last year, with the same enthusiasm and expertise that they showed last time. Holes 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and a fairway bunker of 15 will be worked on. Here is a selection of photos from the first 4 weeks of work. More photos will be added as the work progresses. Members can see the more detailed information and hole photographs here.

Once again it is the intention to have a full course of 18 holes in play, albeit with some changes in distance and direction from the usual course. We welcome any questions or comments so please send them to
