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.

Great Parkland course

Enjoyed playing Hirsel for the first time. Winter season had just begun so winter tees were in operation along with fairway mats. There were no winter greens being used on this day. Weather was typical autumnal cool but dry with little wind.
Accepting all of this I thoroughly enjoyed the round. The course was a little heavy after a lot of recent rain but this simply added to the challenge.
There are some great holes on the course and a good variety. Greens were in excellent condition for any time of the year, let alone the beginning of November.
As a mid handicapper I found the course relatively challenging but highly enjoyable.
I hope to return to The Hirsel to play it in all it’s Summer glory next year.

Excellent greens and spongy fairways.

Played course in what was hottest September day in a century in Scottish Borders, course has matured with the trees lining fairways which has made it tighter, but fairways and greens in Excellent condition, and sand in bunkers ,softest I've came across.played many times in past and it's one course I,ll always play again when in the borders, had an excellent game and was a pleasure to play.

Brilliant

The course is in great condition. First tee is a bit daunting with people watching you from the clubhouse balcony… fortunately I smashed it down the middle. There’s quite a few blind tee shots

Great course

First time playing here whilst away on holiday. Course was in great condition and some interesting holes. Course layout was a little confusing (particularly a short par 3 where another hole would tee off through the green) but there were signs explaining what was happening and how to approach. Greens in excellent condition and an all round enjoyable experience. Would recommend

Tined and sanded greens today

Arrived at the course in good time only to find that the greens had been tined and were covered with sand and to find that everyone else was only paying £15.00 per round whereas we had been charged £ 30.00 plus the £1 booking fee. We thus feel very cheated.
The Pro shop however did recommend that we approach Golf Now for reimbursement of those overcharges on the day. Very disappointed.

Disappointing Greens

Lovely course. However, it was 'greens week' and the majority of the greens were unplayable. The course Pro said he was only charging 50% to visitors. How do I go about receiving a refund of £45 (3 players)?

Stunning

I live 30 minutes away from the course and have done for 20 years - but had never heard of it! Is this a deliberate ploy for the members to keep it a secret or am I just deaf and blind?

Great course - really enjoyed the game and the weather was great when we played.

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.
