Nestled in the Tweed Valley with the river meandering through the region, Peebles golf course allows you to bathe in the peace and tranquility of the Scottish Borders.
With many a view point of its historic town. There is also plenty to enjoy on this uplands course designed by Harry Colt.
At 6160 yards with a double green on the third and seventh holes, Peebles requires course management, with the locals advice of ‘All Putts run to Peebles’ to take note of.
The holes of particular interest are the sixth with the Wrae Burn just in front of the green, and so is it a lay up or go for glory?
The ninth is a short par five and with the wind behind is reachable in two, a high index for the ladies so an easy par for me. The highest hole is the 14th, Stey Brae with fantastic views over The Borders
The 16th is a short par three with a pretty bridge across as you approach the green, but beware an errant shot to the left as the trees will devour your ball.
The 18th is a rewarding downhill par five, and as the weary golfer returns for a much earned lunch the prospects of a warming par or even a birdie are good, a positive conclusion that will bring him or her back for more.
The club house and pro shop are a mark of the reception appreciated by golfing travellers, warm, friendly and generous.
