Golf Courses in the Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders may not enjoy the same high-profile courses that other parts of the country may have, but there's a certain delight in discovering its hidden gems: friendly locals, wonderful scenery, terrific value for money, and a brilliant collection of more than 20 golf courses.

Eyemouth is a course not to miss. Its sixth hole, which plays across a deep gully down to the lashing waves below, is one of the most photographed holes in Scottish golf and was once voted 'Britain's Most Extraordinary Golf Hole'. Meanwhile, the 13th (the so-called 'Hawkness Monster') measures over 650 yards from the back trees and is one of the longest holes in the country.

For those with a taste for history, Hawick has the oldest golf club in the Scottish Borders, which dates back to 1877. The course itself is of high quality too, and due to its high elevation, it offers some lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

Breaking away into the spotlight is the Roxburghe in Kelso. The Roxburghe, owned by the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe, was the Borders' first championship golf course. Home of the Charles Church Scottish Seniors Open, it is a great test of golf amid wonderful surroundings. The designer was Dave Thomas, and as a result the grounds bears his hallmarks - deep bunkers and large rolling greens.

Another Thomas-designed course is the Macdonald Cardrona resort, near Peebles. Its greens are known to be the best in the region and it is a great choice for a Scottish Borders golfing break.

With world-renowned courses, hidden gems and breathtaking scenery, the South East of Scotland is truly a wonderful setting for a game of golf.
