The best in Scotland12/02/2014this review is the subjective opinion of a GOLFBOO user and not of GOLFBOO S.LI challenge you to find a better course, I have played here several times and in my opinion there is no other course like it. It is well maintained with vibrant green grass and the greens were in excellent shape. This combined with a friendly, outgoing staff is what makes me come back every time.
Average rating obtained byThis rating for The Roxburghe Golf Club. is the average of 19 ratings obtained from www.golfshake.comLovely course and fastest greens I have been on this year. A real beast of a championship course in excellent condition. Gave me a kicking!! Only small thing would be more sand in the bunkers I was constantly in....(Round played: May 2015 - Score: 102 Handicap: 15.6)
Average rating obtained byThis rating for The Roxburghe Golf Club. is the average of 12 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukI would have to agree with others who have commented (members bias excepted) about the 'greatness' of the Roxburghe. I've played in many times (father a member) but I'm not alone in considering it vastly over-rated. Sure it stands out in the Borders where Cardona aside there's little to get proper golfers excited but how they get away with the 'Gateway to Scottish Golf' nonsense is beyond me; the Borders is not an area that real golfers bother about - East Lothian (Scotland's Golf Coast as it's officially called with Muirfield, North Berwick, Dunbar and Gullane) or Ayrshire with Troon, Turnberry and Western Gailes, the north with Old Moray, Royal Dornoch, Balgownie etc and of course Fife and Tayside with St Andrews, Elie, Crail, Carnoustie and Panmure are the REAL deal. The Roxburghe with its pseudo country-club set up but long, tedious and unattractive layout (save for the railway viaduct which of course the designers had no hand in!) just doesn't cut it. Save your money if you're tempted to take a trip to the Borders and instead head an hour's dive across to East Lothian; that's proper golf. CJYL
Average rating obtained byThis rating for The Roxburghe Golf Club. is the average of 13 ratings obtained from www.ukgolfguide.comUsing a greenfree voucher at Â£40 each was money well spent. A class venue without being in your face.Friendly welcome in the pro shop. Not a weak hole on the course, great scenery, wide fairways and large bunkers make this a must play if in the area. Condition was excellent in late August.
