One of Edinburgh’s oldest golf clubs, Lothianburn in Midlothian, has been forced to close after it saw its membership steadily dwindle.

The Scottish Golf Union has offered extensive support to the club in recent years and the governing body’s hope is that talks with Swanston New prove positive for all concerned.

Lothianburn, whose history dates back to 1893, is hoping to reach a deal with neighbouring Swanston to share facilities at both clubs and keep its course in use.
