Golf at Kelso

The course was much busier than when we played previously so play was. a bit slower but that wasn’t an issue for us with me being a high handicap and the weather was gorgeous.
This was the first time we had played during the racing season and found the course railings a bit distracting but we enjoyed our round and would compensate for this in future

Solid value for money

Excellent value for money. Course was near enough empty so whizzed round in 3 hours even with taking our time. Clubhouse was closed which was a shame but that was on their website. Good fun, course condition is pretty good - better than £15. Small greens which made it tricky. Layout is ok but difficult for them with the racecourse

Good course. Was windy day and not much shelter for a parkland course so made it a difficult round. Would like to try again on a calmer day. Race course makes the rough difficult but overall nice course, friendly staff.

The rough made it rough

Friendly staff and members. The course is located in the horse race course and due to an imminent race meeting the rough was left to grow long. This slightly detracted from the overall experience.

Race course spoils layout

The greens on the course are in great condition. Having to play over the horse racing track in several places does make it very difficult to follow the fairway? The grass off the fairways is far too long and thick? Lost far too many ball's in places you shouldn't?
