The course was designed by James Braid who also designed Carnoustie and Gleneagles amongst many other courses.
You will be sure of a friendly welcome as we are very happy to see visitors at our golf course. Don't be put off by the steep climb on the approach road to this course. This is only the access to base camp, you might say. But on the course there are plenty of reasonably level lies that make for some excellent challenges. There are, however, two precipitous climbs at the 10th and the 11th. From the 10th tee it is straight up the side of the hill and, if you're lucky the ball will stick where it lands or it may find itself back on the tee. The locals tend to tee high and let it fly! The views back over Galashiels, as you clamber onto the 10th green, make the ascent worthwhile. If you suffer from vertigo, do as the locals often do and play a shortened circuit missing out the worst of the ascents.
