The Hirsel Golf Club
Hirsel Golf Club, founded in 1948, appeals to all levels of golfers. The historic and picturesque golf course was referred to in one magazine as "The Augusta of the North."
Hirsel, a parkland golf course nestled on the Scottish border on the outskirts of Coldstream, offers great natural beauty and breathtaking views over the Cheviot Hills and surrounding countryside. It features 18 very different holes strategically designed to make the most of the undulations of the hills and valleys and the natural hazards presented by a very large number of majestic, mature trees and the winding Leet River.
The golf course measures 6,024 yards. Par is 70 for men and 72 for women, with both par 5s in the last seven holes.

Lovely Course Friendly Staff
I played here for the 1st time yesterday. The course is parkland and is in a nice peaceful setting. After a lot of rain it was fairly soggy in places but most fairways were good. There were a fair few winter tees in operation but all the greens were in play and they were good for the time of year.
The pro was very welcoming and managed to get us off a bit earlier.
A nice course in a lovely setting I will definitely play again.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course today which was in excellent donation. It was wet in buts but we still enjoyed our game,
Absolutely fantastic parklands course. The only thing missing from making this course fit for a European tour event, is a driving range and a chipping/putting area. All in all though, absolutely awesome course. Can’t wait to play here in the summer.
Cracking Parkland Course
Played this course as a change from my own. Course makes good use of the mature trees that line the fairways, hence there is minimal heavy rough and if you end up in there you are a way off target. Parkland. The greens are all readily accessible with a well targeted approach shot but some have sharp drop off at their rear so plenty back spin required. Not many are protected by large greenside bunkers and there are no bunkers that you need a JCB to help you get out. Some well placed fairway bunkers to catch the unwary. There is a crissing and crossing of tees and fairways at a couple of spots and care is needed as the tees are in range of a hooked/sliced tee shot. The course was in great condition as were the greens given recent heavy rain in the Scottish Borders and weren't suffering from the dreaded seasonal coring and top dressing. I was only 2 over for the front nine but the course had its revenge on the back 9 courtesy of the trees!! Lovely course. thoroughly recommend.
A great little course with the most trees I have every played on. The course benefits the straight hitters no need to be a monster driver on this course. Every hole is enclosed, condition was perfect, you would not believe you are metres away from the town. It is like playing in someone's well manicured garden. Thank you Hirsall. PC
A great course in superb condition very manicured. Will definitely be back
Fantastically kept course
I came up to Scotland to see family so naturally I booked a round of golf. I wasn’t sure where to go but I’m very glad I played here, got lucky with the weather but I have to say the course conditions were absolutely brilliant. Would definitely recommend.
Cracking day. Friendly staff
Unbelievable value. Very nice layout. Lots of variety. Tree lined pretty course. Considering time of year course in great nik. Rained heavily back nine and when finished all of said a cracking day. Highly recommended
The course was very enjoyable to play .not on winter greens yet but use winter tees reduces the length of the holes but still a challenge assistant pro very accommodating let us tee of early as tee was free .as it was first time on course gave us directions for holes which helped .due to covid clubhouse closed but can pick up juice and sweets etc at pro shop.will be back in summer to play 5out of 5
Wee gem ?
Every course in Scotland is a wee gem but this one really is it’s a must play in your in the Borders. Some challenging par 4s and 3s tricky par 5 to finish.
The Pro and the clubhouse staff were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely visit again.
Yes we had a wonderful mornings golf. Well worth the trip from Belford to play this little gem of a corse the whole course was in fantastic condition. We would definitely visit again .
I would call this a Garden Course it’s just lovely with rolling tree lined fairways and manicured greens. Feels tight because of the trees and the river running through but this is a fair and challenging course.
