Torwoodlee is known for its lush, tight fairways and superb small greens. The opening three holes play over the original land until the fourth opens out onto some fine Border hillside. It is a steady progression up to an inspiring viewpoint before the course zigzags back to the valley floor.
At the fifth you have the challenge of the course's trickiest test taking you to the zenith of the course. It is a long par five covering the slope to a ledge-like green. The double-trouble of playing uphill with long reaches for your fairway shots makes this a hole for your best strokes. There's a double green at the seventh and the 13th to content with while the par four 11th is a difficult dogleg. Then, it's back into the trees to a fine finish alongside the River Gala.
