    This course just gets better and better
    What a fantastic experience
    We spoke to the Course Manager, Bob who has got to be one of the most interesting people in his business given his experience on some of the best courses in Scotland.

    I know these reviews are always subjective, but having played numerous inland courses, including some well known ones such as the Belfry and The Forest of Arden, this is the best I have played by a mile. A couple of blind tee shots which I thought was interesting for a relatively new course, although nothing compared to RCD. Lots of well placed and deep bunkers, beautiful fairways, great staff and some lovely views (14th obviously). Green fee for March was £40, which is great value for money.

    Magnificent course, especially considering it's young age (est. 1996) we played the course twice with a group of ten and found not only the course to be brilliant, but also the hospitable service from the prosho, we were told by locals that there is no comparable course in the general area. Kudos to the Roxburghe

    Absolutely magnificent, beautiful, tranquil, tartan effect fairways, immaculate greens, scenery, challenging and a wonderful hotel and restaurant-as you can guess I loved it, but so did everyone who played it. I loved it even more than St.Andrews, but the bad thing is after telling my wife about it she wants us to go and stay for a long weekend and try the fishing, tennis, pheasant shooting, clay pigeon, spa, fitness centre, saunas, which will cost me an arm and a leg.
    Even if you're not into Golf it is an inspiring place to visit with so much to do and see.

    A great course to play with superb views. The best course in the borders by a long shot and very challenging

    Excellent golf course with superb course facilities. A long course made longer by the fact we were allowed to play from the Medal Tee's. Take a cart if your playing two rounds in a day!

        There is no apostrophe in tees.
