The history of the Scottish Borders comes alive at Minto Golf Course, an 18-hole championship run that will challenge golfers of all levels while giving them scenic views of the local countryside. Near the 17th-century village of Denholm, Minto Golf Club was established in 1928.

A mainstay of the Scottish Borders popular Freedom of the Fairways program, Minto has spent more than a decade in a non-stop effort to improve every aspect of the course. The results are well-maintained fairways and greens and a delightful round of golf. With the hard work of the dedicated staff, Minto Golf Club - set in rolling parkland with mature woodland - has earned a reputation as one of the most well-maintained golf courses in the Southern part of Scotland.

Minto GolfClub's signature hole is undoubtedly No.12, a 267-yard par 4 named "Everest." A tight drive through the tree-lined fairway is demanded, and the approach shot takes you to a a small, postage stamp green where trouble lurks behind. The No. 11 hole, named "Dunion," is possibly the most scenic hole on this incredibly scenic course, as golfers will have awe-inspiring views Dunion Hill on the left and the Border hills to the right.

Following your round at this course that plays more than 5,600 yards and to a par of 69, enjoy a relaxing time on the patio to soak in more of the brilliant Scottish Border ambiance.

Location: Five miles north-east of Hawick. Leave A698 to Denholm.

    A gem of a course that lives up to its name as the best course in the borders. Immaculate greens and fairways, a cosy clubhouse, helpful staff and very good food make this a must visit course, perfect for a day away.
