The Borders is a great place for golf; not only are there a vast number of courses, which range from parkland courses to a few very good links courses, but golfing in The Borders, is also good value for money, with a number of excellent packages available from Visit Scotland.  If you are planning a trip, let me know – I would be happy to help and pass on any knowledge I have picked up whilst hacking my way around The Borders!

I can certainly vouch for The Hirsel in Coldstream, a course I have been a member of for 20 years. It offers a number of challenges! It is well kept and only a 20 minute drive. The reasonable fee's are another selling point.
