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 was formerly 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 one of the few championship courses 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.

Fantastic condition

I like courses that you can only see the hole you are playing from the tee. This happens on 14 holes. The view from the 14 th tee is amazing. The whole course in fantastic condition

The Crown Jewels of Borders Courses

I've been playing here for years but due to lock down hadn't played since lockdown - first game back and I remember why I love the course so much - it's fair open but still a good test - green we're very good with a true roll as always - fairways surrounds and approaches all immaculate as you?d expect after a good rest - a few bunkers on the back nice are under refurbishment but that's being a bit picky to be honest . Always a joy to play here

The premier golf location in the Borders

We visited the club on the 28th of December on a dry day, mild temperatures but a gusty wind. The course was in superb condition all the way round - despite all the rain there has been, we saw no standing water: the tees and greens were presented in excellent condition - firm and consistent - and there was no need for "winter" or temporary arrangements. It was a real pleasure, you can see by the way the course has been laid out, and by the size of some of the bunkers, that this is a real test of golf. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day, and had the course mostly to ourselves by teeing off at 12 noon, giving ourselves three and a half hours to sunset, and finishing in good time with fifteen minutes to spare!!

Championship Rough

This is a fantastic course and tough challenge. The rough though was knee high Championship style and you're ball is lost in many areas if it enters, even when you are certain of point of entry. Very tough for high handicappers.

Lovely course and great value

A true gem of a parkland course with stunning views. Well laid out and spacious course set amongst many acres. Some gorgeous holes and a good test of golf. Some long par 4?s to test the better players. Course was immaculate.

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.
