Nestled within the picturesque landscape of the Scottish Borders lies Kelso Golf Club, a true golfer's haven. Located on Golf Course Road, this exclusive members club boasts an exquisite parkland course that will captivate your senses and challenge your skills. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, our 18-hole, par 71 course offers an unforgettable golfing experience.
Designed with both beauty and playability in mind, our course effortlessly blends into the surrounding natural splendour. Its gentle undulations and predominantly flat terrain make it a pleasure to traverse on foot, ensuring a leisurely and enjoyable round for all. As an added bonus, a portion of our course is cleverly integrated within the prestigious Kelso Racecourse, providing a unique atmosphere that sets us apart.
Renowned locally for its impeccable turf quality, particularly our velvety greens, Kelso Golf Club prides itself on maintaining the highest standards. The original layout was crafted by the legendary Ben Sayers, a true pioneer of golf course architecture. Later, in 1930, James Braid lent his expertise to redesign and refine the course, infusing it with his signature touches. The culmination of their work resulted in the mature and breathtaking 18-hole layout that we cherish today, officially unveiled in 1980.
But Kelso Golf Club isn't just about the course; we understand that a memorable golfing experience extends beyond the fairways. Our clubhouse, perched in a prime position with panoramic vistas of the course, offers a warm and inviting atmosphere. Step inside, and you'll be greeted by our friendly staff, ready to extend a heartfelt welcome and provide impeccable service throughout your visit.
The clubhouse features a well-stocked bar, offering a wide range of libations to quench your thirst after a satisfying round. From fine Scotch whiskies to refreshing local ales, we have something to suit every taste. And when hunger strikes, our restaurant beckons with a delectable menu that showcases the finest local ingredients. Whether you're in the mood for a hearty post-golf meal or a light snack, our culinary offerings will leave you satiated and satisfied.
