Picture: David Rintoul.On Saturday, 18 June 2011, a replica of the original 6 hole golf course will be layed out across Bruntsfield Links from Bruntsfield Terrace to Spottiswoode Road. This will be similar to the original course which was changed in the 1890s to form the present 36-hole Short Hole Course.

The Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society, which dates back to 1761, are holding an Anniversary Golf Tournament with hickory clubs and period dress.

The 36-hole Short Hole Golf Course will be closed for this historic tournament which will take place on Bruntsfield Links on Saturday, 18th June 2011.

Due to safety issues, some paths crossing the area of the Short Hole Golf Course on Bruntsfield Links will closed at various times from 8am until 5.30pm, but alternative access routes will be available on the next pathway over the Links.

The main Leamington Walk will be open at all times and stewards will be on site to assist on crossing points.

If you require any further information, please call the South Edinburgh Local Office on 0131 529 5151.
