Golf

Scotland is the Home of Golf and the Scottish Borders and East Lothian have great variety of exciting Golf Courses


 

The spectacular Eyemouth Golf Club is the only coastal 18-hole course in the Borders and offers some of the most exhilarating and scenic holes in Scotland.  Nearer to Airhouses, is The Roxburghe in Kelso and for a shorter challenge there is the tranquil 9-hole parkland course at St Boswells.  There is also a short course at Lauder.  

The Open Championship, golf's most prestigious tournament, will be held this year at St. Andrews,  12th - 19th July,  which is less than a two  hour drive away.   For more information go to the Visit Scotland web site.

East Lothian, just a half hour away, offers 22 courses for all standards and tastes and this list includes of course, Muirfield.

The Freedom of the Fairways is Scotland's best selling Golf Passport which entitles pass holders to pick from 21 courses across the Scottish Borders. A pass can be purchased on line and there is more information on the Visit Scotland web site
