Golf in Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders is one of 32 council areas of Scotland. The Scottish Borders is located in the eastern part of the Southern Uplands and borders with England. The region is hilly and largely rural, with the River Tweed flowing west to east through it. Two national scenic areas lie within the region: The Eildon and Leaderfoot National Scenic Area and The Upper Tweeddale National Scenic Area. Hawick Golf Club is the oldest golf club in the Scottish Borders, dating back to 1877.

Golf in Scottish Borders
Two of the most well-known golf courses in The Scottish Borders were designed by Dave Thomas: Schloss Roxburghe Hotel & Golf Course and Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa. Other Scottish Borders golf courses you should definitely play are Hawick Golf Club, Eyemouth Golf Club, Peebles Golf Club and Torwoodlee Golf Club. The Scottish Borders is perfectly positioned as perhaps the easiest destination in Scotland to reach; Edinburgh & The Lothians lie to the north, Dumfries & Galloway to the west and Northumberland in northern England to the south. The Scottish Borders is still not really discovered as a holiday destination which means fewer crowds and more opportunities to experience a land full of fairy-tale castles, breathtaking coastline, and lovely villages. When not golfing, visit Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford House and the village of Kelso. Getting to The Scottish Borders is easy. When flying in, Edinburgh Airport is the closest airport. The Scottish Borders is accessible by train on the East Coast mainline between London and Edinburgh, which stops at nearby Dunbar and North Berwick in East Lothian, and in Berwick-upon-Tweed, which is located just across the border with England.

Minto Golf Club
Deze baan is prima onderhouden en heeft veel uitdaging. De fairways zijn een plaatje, maar de greens hebben een mindere kwaliteit. Ze zijn traag. Er is geen shop of merchandising. Het personeel in het eenvoudige clubhuis is erg aardig.

Innerleithen Golf Club
We have played this lovely little course every year during our Borders pilgrimage. We always call on the way back from Peebles (see previous review) its a lovely 9 holer in the Leithen Valley with a road and a river running through it. We can't really comment on the clubhouse as its never been open when we play, but having spoken to the secretary I'm sure a warm welcome i…

Eyemouth Golf Club
Mooie baan aan zee. Een prachtig uitzicht vanuit het clubhuis op baan en de Noordzee. Omstandigheden om te spelen waren prima. Weinig wind en een lekker zonnetje. Dan is de baan niet zo heel moeilijk. Al vergis je je al gauw vanwege de snelle greens. Alles ligt er goed verzorgd bij. Mooie shop.
