It wouldn’t be Championship Week without the weather getting involved and causing major disruption, […]

The course is starting to get some much needed definition onto its surfaces due to the upturn in growth from the consistent humidity and much higher temperatures we have experienced lately (I know this cause I am currently typing this up in my […]

April 2019 By the time you read this update, we will have cut the ribbons and cracked open the champagne as the full course will be back in play and the new bunkers in use. The changes to the course over the last 6 months have been nothing short of spectacular and the finished product is certainly something Mortonhall GC can be very proud of. […]

December 12, 2018

In the last month the climate has certainly taken a turn for the worse, with temperatures getting much lower and producing the odd ground frost in the morning along with higher rainfall figures to deal with.
