Within the grounds of SCHLOSS Roxburghe, you will find the Roxburghe Championship Golf Course. For people who want to stretch their physical and mental capacities, golf is the perfect activity.
The Roxburghe Championship Golf Course was opened in 1997, the work of renowned golf course architect Dave Thomas. The design bears his hallmarks of well-positioned bunkers and large, USGA rolling greens. A championship-standard 18-hole course in the Scottish Borders that will challenge the best while giving pleasure to all. This 7,100 yard, 72-par course follows natural contours, mature beech woods, dramatic water hazards, and uses clever bunkering to spectacular effect making this a "must play" venue. The picturesque, free-draining course provides an enjoyable game designed to suit all standards of golfer. Dave Thomas has created a wonderful mix of holes using the natural contours of the landscape, the mature woodland edge and the scenic views. The signature par 5 hole ‘the Viaduct’, flanked by the river Teviot commands a wonderful position from the elevated tee with the green framed by the famous Roxburgh Viaduct.
Ranked in the top 10 of inland courses in Scotland, the Roxburghe Championship Golf Course is open all year round and warmly welcomes visitors to play the course either as an individual, 4 balls or as part of larger society/corporate group. The club also includes a golf range and chipping area, and tuition is available. The hiring of golf buggies, electric trolleys, trolleys, clubs and shoes is also possible.
