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. From the 1st tee you can see 4 or 5 holes leading back down the hill and around through the valley and back up toward the clubhouse. Then the fun begins. The 10th hole begins a series of holes that carries you to the top, straight up the hill, the only thing flat on some of these holes are the tee boxes! At the top you play several holes along the rim of the hill. Here you get your reward for the effort. From the top you get a spectacular view of the Borders and surrounding countryside. The finishing holes are all downhill. This is worth a trip especially if the weather is clear. Galashiels is another of the many courses in Scotland where often during the year they use the honour box system. You put your money in a door box and play. No tee time, no starter, no ticket. If you have the time Torwoodlee Golf Club is a mile down the road and also worth a look. (Frank Faragalli)
