About

Holes 9
Type
Par 70
Length 5950 yards
Slope 121
Rating 68.5

A nine-hole run located 32 miles south of Edinburgh in the Scottish Borders, Innerleithen Golf Course is set in the scenic valley of the river Leithen. Playing to 3,033 yards, Innerleithen is the perfect walking course, where a golfer can enjoy his favorite game in one of Scotland's most scenic locales.

The starting hole will immediately showcase the challenge that Innerleithen presents. A par 3 with the green surrounded on three sides with water, accuracy is a must, as it is throughout the entire course. The well-maintained greens and fairways will entice golfers of all levels, but those looking to mark down a low score will need to keep the ball in the fairway and be tidy with their approach shots. The course also includes the challenging No. 5 hole, which is a par 3 with an elevated green and will have you shooting over a road. Also, long hitters will be able to let fly with their drivers on the No. 8 hole, a 524-yard par 5.

With a stream coming into play on six holes, golfers will be challenged to avoid losing any golf balls as they'll have to also battle the incredible scenic qualities of Innerleithen, which will captivate both a player's game, and imagination. At at just £20 per round, players will get more for their money at Innerleithen Golf Club than at perhaps any other club in the prodigious Scottish Borders golf
region.

Hidden gem

We played this as part of the hole way round.
A fantastic wee hidden gem, in amongst the hills. A few challenging holes and a lot of thinking to be done on the tees. But the condition was fantastic.

Cracking little course

For a 9 hole course this is well lated out and is a great course to play. The staff in the clubhouse are 1st class and I'd highly recommend having some food after a round of golf

Quirky Course

9 holes set in fantastic location, with stunning views.

Very friendly staff, and well looked after course. Went round twice to achieve 18 holes.

Not too busy for a Sunday, with a decent pace of play.

November golf

Fine nine hole course, friendly welcome when we arrived, The course has a nice layout and was in good condition, considering the amount of rain. During our round we noticed the greenkeeper sponging the greens of excess water. Good day out

Good course set in beautiful surroundings with lots of quirks

Good, well maintained, 9-hole golf course with friendly members and a good range of holes to test all levels. There are a couple of monster par 4’s and the country road running through the course adds to the drama on the tee! Great value for money round, will definitely make a return visit. Recommended

Beautiful tranquility in the valley

On a sunny day Innerleithen GC is a lovely nine hole golf course to be playing. The layout is interesting with a mixture of long and short holes. There are some interesting challenges no matter what length of hole you're playing. Unfortunately, on the day we played we got stuck behind some very slow players who weren't keen to let us play through.

Delightful

A delightful 9·holder set in a picturesque steep sided, wooded valley.

The 1st is a par three to a small green set just across a stream with out of bounds right...and so it continues with little hazards to catch stray shots, but plenty to reward the good ones. The par 5 6th is a great hole from an elevated tee with a stream running down the fairway and oob left · and a green just tucked away in a corner.

Very nice condition with plenty of fescue grass on the fairways for those tight lies we love to see when we play on the links.

I play a lot of golf courses and this is one I would definitely play again.

9 hole cracker.

Nestled in the valley at the back Innerleithen you will find this 9 hole course. I utilises it’s confined space really well. It is a challenging wee course in a lovely backdrop. Many of the holes have water in play from the wee streams that run through. Accurate drives and approach shots are a must as there is heavy ruff on quite a few holes. Really enjoyed our round and will definitely play here again.
