    This is a very challenging and enjoyable golf course. It has superb views of the surrounding hills, especially from the elevated tees on the 3rd and 6th. The course itself is a wonderful test of golf, in which accurate play is required, with all clubs. The third hole must be one of the best par 4s about, a long par 4 playing from an elevated tee on a slight dog leg right. Your second shot here must carry a wee burn into a narrow entrance to the green. This hole stuck out the most in an exceptionable wee 9 holer. It is a must for any golfer to play when visiting the area and is very reasonably priced at only £11 for 18 holes.

    If you are in the Borders area with a view to playing 'Scottish Golf' play Innerleithen it is great fun.

    Innerleithen golf course is good, but is not in a respectable condition at present. The fairways are dry, and the greens are extremely fast.

    Superb setting for this lovely nine hole. You tee off from the elevated 1st and the burn running through the middle of the fairway acts like a magnet ! The third is not for a slicer as the rough on the right is a real killer. Make sure your car is parked well back from the road, as the fourth can bring you mighty close to the car park. The fifth is either a birdie chance or double figures ! A 100 yard par three, you tee up a cliff ! If you get it up and down, you should look at at least par, but catch it wrong and you could be there for some time. Watch out for sheep on the par 5 fifth. The rest of the holes run along the banks of the river and are wide and flat, but again, problems could occur for the slicer. A must for any golfer visiting the Borders.
