What the club says: Designed by the renowned golf architect Dave Thomas, creator of The Belfry, this par 73 course presents a challenge, and includes some of the Scottish Borders' most attractive scenery. Making the most of wood, park and river, Cardrona has something for every golfer. Although remarkably flat, given the rolling hillsides around you, there are plenty of wooded and sandy surprises to keep you on your spikes!

Fantastic golf course ,very busy at times and some slow players but well worth the visit and a buggy is a must but you need to book the buggy well in advance.

Golfshake Team Review

Stunning golf course is excellent condition.

Can be wide and forgiving from the tee in places and the course should hold up all year round.

Nice mixture of holes offering a great experience for high to low handicaps. - Apr 29 2017

Nick D rated 2 out of 5 - May 30 2017

Overall the setting is very good. The course is challenging and you really do need a guide book to help you plot the holes. There are 3 par 3's all are btw 190-200 yds be warned. There is also quite a walk beteeen some holes which makes the total length almost 7miles. The fairways were good and well trimmed. The bunkers are hard and bare in some and then plentiful in others luck of the draw and there are plenty of bunkers out there. The main issues were the greens they were very wooly in the majority of places and had been hollowtimed but weren't sanded over which left the dreaded holes all over the greens and of course this meant they didn't run True which really spoiled the overall experience. It could be something really good but on our visit it wasn't good at all.

Played the open at the weekend and really enjoyed the challenge. Loads of optical illusions from the tee box force a few mistakes. It's a modern course is top nick and very enjoyable. I will be playing here again.
