The wonderful countryside of the Borders, the natural barrier between England and Scotland, is sometimes missed by eager golfers in pursuit of the Fife, Lothian or Ayrshire giant courses. To stay a while in the Borders offers at least fifteen beautiful courses suitable for all ability golf enjoyment. Undulating fairways with enticing greens and bordered with trees, whins or heather offer the golfer a true test of golf whilst experiencing outstanding scenic views.
Your hosts will be happy to recommend and help you book local golf courses. Just ask
It’s not everyone that can afford to have their own golf course, but the Duke of Roxburghe commissioned Belfy designer, Dave Thomas to design a course at his Jacobean property in the Scottish Borders. Only opened in 1997, Roxburghe is the region's first Championship Golf Course and has hosted the Scottish Seniors Open. The course is open to visitors but players must provide handicap certificates of 24 for men and 36 for ladies to play this course.
Whilst there are many fine courses in the Borders, Hawick Golf Club is reputed to be the oldest having been established in 1877. Fine rolling hills, whins and tree lined fairways give sumptuous views over the Borders countryside. A wonderful all ability course and visitors are very welcome.
