What the club says: The Roxburghe is an exceptional parkland layout situated on the banks of the River Teviot and surrounded by natural woodland. The estate is owned by the Duke of Roxburghe and he was determined to make this course a few notches above the rest. So, he commissioned Dave Thomas of Belfry fame to make the most of a landscape ideally suited for the purpose. The result of Thomas' design is inspiring with numerous mammoth sized bunkers, wide and rolling fairways and strategically placed water features. At 7,111 yards, it's a challenging course although with the fairways generally on the wide side, it is also most suitable for the amateur golfer. In 2002 Roxburghe entered Golf World's top 100 in the British Isles; it is also the only championship course in the Scottish Borders. An immediate hit with pro golfers such as Colin Montgomerie, the course record is held by Sergio Garcia with a 6 under par 66.

Beautiful

setup for their club championship, but 1 day after Storm Hector, the course could not have looked better - but really tough to play ( or at least tough the way I was playing !). Will want to make an annual pilgrimage here

Great visit all round

Quite a drive through country roads to get to the Roxburghe, but well worth it.
Clubhouse and pro shop are quite small but adequate and very well presented.

The aspect of the course is great. It is a beautiful parkland course, very idyllic and with lots of space on most holes not to feel hemmed in by all of the large trees.

The course was in great shape. It is long and challenging for the high handicapper but thoroughly enjoyable all the same. Bunkers are many and often massive. You really need to think about how you approach each green as they are often surrounded by large bunkers.

Par 3s are also a challenge with only one relatively short and all are lovely holes but tricky shots.

There are great views around the course but the first view of the viaduct as you walk down hill through the trees is an extra wow factor.

We finished off with a meal in the clubhouse where the food was also first class.

Superb Condition, Scale and Setting

Played a society event in brilliant sunny weather with a wide range of handicaps in the group. Course was in stunning condition, greens a proper test for all abilities and a real struggle for some. The welcome and hospitality was top drawer and would recommend the Roxburghe and The Borders to all.

Played this course in August, was in good condition. The sand was very poor, damp even though it was afternoon and it hadn't been wet. Course was good but I think it was a little overrated, a bit expensive for what it is.

Lots of walking between holes. We walked well over 8 miles in total, almost 5 hours on the course. Great views of the viaduct on the 14th

Excellent course and setting. Some holes are quite spectacular particularly 14th. Played with a voucher but would gladly pay for another round at the going rate. Course was in excellent condition for the time of year

Beautiful course, difficult but always fair. Not too scary off the tee, but greens are well protected and the bunkers are serious. All in all a fabulous championship course, and a must to play.
