The golf course at St Boswells is idyllically set on the south bank of the River Tweed, not far from Melrose, adjoining a site of scientific importance, this nine hole course enjoys an environment which enables the golfer to absorb a relaxed playing atmosphere which adds to the whole golfing experience. Between shots it is possible to watch anglers landing their catch or the horses on the opposite bank drinking from the river. Wildlife is ever present and the backdrop of sounds and movement just adds to a stress free round.
St Boswells Golf Club offers terrific views and challenging play for golfers at every skill level. Well-groomed fairways and greens keep St Boswells Golf Club difficult yet friendly, and the staff can offer tips and tricks for playing your best round. St Boswells Golf Club is a terrific choice for your regular rounds of golf or a new destination for you and friends when visiting Melrose.
The original course was laid out by William Park, Musselburgh Open Golf Champion, who wrote in his brief ‘the turf is very good and resembles very much the turf to be found on seaside courses’.
The only hiccup in the Club’s history took place in 1948 when the river Tweed rose some 1 feet above normal level, once in a century flood, and so much damage was done that the Club was forced to close down. Ten years later the Club was reformed on a temporary lease and was redesigned by John Slade, Duddingston. Play resumed in 1958 and through strenuous efforts by a few members an with financial support from the local community the Club flourished. The fortunes of the Club changed dramatically in 1979 when the course was purchased out right and a few years later in 1985 a new clubhouse was built. Unlike other Border courses the terrain is flat and presents few difficulties other than the River Tweed, which is defined as a ‘lateral water hazard’.
