The Championship Golf Course at the Roxburghe Golf Club, set in 200 acres, is the Border region’s first Championship standard golf course. Dave Thomas, internationally renowned golf course architect and former Ryder Cup star was appointed by the Duke in March 1995. His brief was to create a golf course of the highest quality using existing natural features of the site to maximum effect. What you will now find as a golfer is a wonderful course on a fabulous piece of land, a manageable test and visual treat. This course bears all the unique hallmarks of Dave Thomas, numerous deep challenging bunkers, mature woodland to define fairways, dramatic water hazards and generous rolling greens. The course is Par 72 and 7111 yards.
Set on the banks of the river Teviot, the free-draining and picturesque course provides an enjoyable test of golf 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.
