Galashiels Golf Club
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)

As we are from NL where everything is flat, we had some difficulty in adapting our game to the very hilly course. We think the course is beautifully integrated in the wonderful Scottish landscape. The views were fantanstic. The course itself was in good shape with very good greens. After the round of 9 holes we had a nice chat with one of the members, who showed us some chipping-tricks on an ondulated green,which was rarther nice..
We did an online booking through GolfNow and got a good deal. We were just passing through on our way home and it fitted perfectly. We had a wonderful golf experience
Gem of a golf course and typical James Braid design. Some challenging small holes and few long sweeping fairways. Delightful!
It's only 9 holes.
It was windy and raining when I played and I was alone on the course. it's 9 holes with some different tees.
Hilly but good condition.
The club house was closed no access to toilets or changing facilities and nowhere to get a drink or something to eat.
Lovely 9 hole course
Galashiels Golf Course is a great little track that provides something different to for the golfer. The course is always in great condition, even during the winter.
It's usually pretty quiet as well so its great for beginners and juniors to come and play. There's also practice facilities behind the first tee - something that's rare in the borders.
Definitely worth a visit for the views alone!!
For less than a tenner a head, you really can't beat it.
