We’ve unearthed a cracking album of historic photographs of Mortonhall Golf Club which we wanted to share with you.
Dating from 1909, the album includes some wonderful action shots as well as scenic views of the course, the clubhouse and its surroundings.
Here’s the club captain driving off, totally unfazed by the sheep grazing on the fairway up ahead.
I’m sure most Saturday morning hackers will recognise the following scene. A golfer searches the rough for a lost ball while his fellow player waits ‘patiently’ on the grass beside him.
This shot, entitled ‘The Home Hole’ features some wonderful fashions, facial topiary and plenty of serious expressions.
You can zoom in to see this and all the other pictures from the album in detail, as well as finding out more about the club itself (including the famous novel in which it is mentioned) on Capital Collections.
