Scottish Borders golf courses
Founded in 1894, Duns Golf Club has gone through many changes in its more than a century of existence, and continues to challenge the locals of Berwickshire as well as traveling golfers.
This course has recently been extended and almost completely changed. It is now a challenging par 72 18 Hole course of approximately 6400 yards. Although quite new the course was in superb condition and the greens were excellent.
Calling this a 'hilly' course is an understatement! This course is not for the faint-hearted or those easily winded, but in the end it has its rewards. The clubhouse is located about midway up the hill.
