A round at the Newbattle Golf Club kicks off on St. Davids, a par 4 that measures 363 yards and requires a tee shot toward the left of the fairway to set up an approach to the protected green. The chance for big hitters to open up their games comes on the 13th hole, Lucky Dip, a par 5 that measures 566 yards. The hole requires a second shot that gets you around the dogleg for a mid- or short-iron to the green. The final hole at the Newbattle Golf Club, Hame, is a par 4 that measures 354 yards and requires a straight shot to stay inbounds for a mid- or short-iron to the green.

Lovely day at Newbattle

Course had pleasant wide fairways which were a bit burnt due to the prolonged period of sunny weather and little rain. The greens were in average condition, a bit slow but green and with growth (I am certain the greenkeeper was purposely keeping the grass a little long in view of the dry conditions). The members were very courteous and we played through two 4-balls very quickly and easily got round in under 3 hours. The catering staff, the food and selection of drinks were all excellent. Overall a very enjoyable round.

Very pleasant round of golf on an enjoyable layout. Course conditions were very good, greens were running extremely well and fairways were also very tidy. Nice touch for the Pro to adjust our time too as we were running late

Winter Rules

In advance of our round there was nothing to advise that fairway mats were required either on the club website or golfnow. As guests we adhered to the rules but disappointing to see numerous players in other groups not doing so.
Enjoyed the course and would play again.
