Founded in 1894, Duns Golf Club has gone through many changes in its more than a century of existence, and continues to challenge the locals of Berwickshire as well as traveling golfers.

In 1921, the golf course was moved to its present location at the Hardens. There the course was designed by A.H. Scott, who also had another important job - as Royal Clubmaker to King George V. A nine-hole course until 1997,the course has grown as much in the past decade as it had the previous half-century.

The course plays to 6,298 yards from the back tees, with the women's tees set at 5,475 yards. Subtly rolling fairways give golfers exquisite views of the country side, all leading up to the signature hole - No. 15, which plays to just 107 yards, but from an elevated tee to a two-tiered green with trouble both in front and behind the hole, earning it the nickname "Double Trouble."

Enjoyable but …

Lovely playing golf with eldest but greens in poor condition. No one at club house before or after so can’t comment on amenities. Nice course layout and some great par 3s and the members we met were great but I feel I will look elsewhere in the Borders to play -

First time at Duns

My husband and I played here for the first time on 9th July . We had a late morning tee time and the course was very quiet which was fine as not knowing the layout made us a bit slow to start with .It is an interesting course with some lovely wide fairways and dog legs to negotiate. The par 3’s were a bit challenging too. There are some quite hilly parts but the views are amazing and the vegetation and topography are superb.
We could not comment on the clubhouse facilities as we didn’t use them except for hiring a trolley which we would recommend.as carrying would have spoilt our game .

9 holes closed.

I’ve played this course 2 weekends in a row. First was in reason bad rain and wind and full course was open. Second time was in the glorious sunny shine and no wind! But because of a small amount of frost in morning they closed half the course? Really poor as by 10:30 all of frost was gone. And they could have reopened the 9!holes which were closed

Nice Course

I played here for the first time. With it being winter and after recent rain I wasn't sure what to expect. The course although soft underfoot wasn't in bad condition, mostly on winter tees but all the greens were in play.
The front 9 is ok but the back 9 is lovely with some interesting holes.
I will play here again hopefully in the summer.

Challenging to say the least

A very challenging golf course especially the back 9 , holes 12,15 &17 require very accurate tee shots. I enjoyed my game but the course was a little to hilly for me

Very enjoyable

First time I’ve played this course, lots of interesting holes design wise with varying directions. You will do well to play to your handicap around here. It’s a gentle start, watch out for the burn/stream on the second, stroke index one is a brut into the wind, the par threes are very good lots of variety especially 16.

Hope you enjoy as much as we did

Drizzly Duns

Staff very friendly and helpful which is a credit to the club.
2nd time I have played here in 3 weeks, as I enjoyed the course immensely.
Sadly my golf was not as good this time, due to the player and nothing else.
Recommend anyone to play here, as it’s tight and makes u play positional golf.
