Second time I have played this course n it left the same imression on me, so tranquil and a joy to play what more can I say a great 9 hole course only matched by melrose in the borders. The only down side I can see is the honesty box, there are not many honest people out there and can only imagine that the club lose a lot of green fees, so employing a full time starter/secretary taking calls and monies would surely be cost effective
we played st boswells immediately after the very disappointing round at kelso and this course held the same sort of memories for me as the 1st time i played it. the first 2 holes are par 3s and ease you into your round. the 2nd has to be one of the most beautiful holes your likely to play in the border region, and walking off here with a birdie or par will set you up for the rest of the round. the river runs down the side of the course so you have to be pretty accurate to score well which i did shooting a 4 over. its a brilliant little 9 hole course with some gorgeous views and interesting holes, and if i lived in the borders i would consider becoming a member of the course. easy on the legs and even easier on the eye. only thing missing is any sort of catering but dont let this put you off as there is a small town just up the road. overall = 7 out of 10.
What a great setting to have a golf course. Very picturesque and one of the best manicured I have seen so far this year, outstanding. Some interesting holes. The only let down was that the course is very play up one way and play back down the other which in the summer months could be interesting as the stray shots could cause problems for other golfers on tees etc. But hey take that aside and you have a wonderful course in quite a stunning place. Play it you will not be disappointed.
Played here on 17 May 2004. This is the 6th time I have played this course and have never failed to be mesmerised by the tranquility and gorgeous scenery of the course next to the river Tweed. There are some quite testing holes and straight hitting is required, but who cares if the ball goes into the water. Alovely place and a must to play when in the area. Go on enjoy it!!
This course is pretty, most of the holes being set on the banks of the River Tweed. Course design means that right handed slicers are safe, as the river is close by on the left going out and far away across the shared fairway on the right coming home. Double width fairways mean that stray shots are rarely penalised. The course is quite featureless, a few trees, a little rough and some water need to be avoided. It looks like it is kept in good condition though.
We played this as part of a 12 course tour of the Borders. We rated this the joint 6th best course and the joint second best 9-hole course. Some great holes, especially the second in a very attractive setting. Hookers/pullers beware - 3,5 and 6 all run along the banks of the River Tweed. The greens were superb. The facilities are quite limited.
Good course, a signature 2nd Hole that must be played. However\r\nslicers watch out as the River Tweed runs along one side and can\r\noften contain bathers.
