Newbattle Golf Club
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.

Winter greens where not great holes all over the place and very sandy
Having played before it is a lovely course and would still recommend
Great staff., greens were fast. Course in excellent condition. I could have played it better, but thoroughly enjoyed the day. Can't wait to get back there. Should be on everyone's bucket list. Thanks
Immaculate course and some interesting challenges
I have rarely, if ever, seen a course and greens in such beautiful condition.
We played a Monday afternoon and almost had the course to ourselves which was great. We know the course but still enjoyed the more challenging holes and had a great afternoon.
Within Ancient Woods
Breath in the fresh air and beautiful surrounds, with the course in tip-top condition. Extremely friendly members, pro shop and green keeping staff. Really enjoyed the round…..will be back.
Newbattle golf course
Fantastic course in beautiful surroundings.
This is my first time here but certainly won’t be my last.
Really enjoyed this testing course. Played it once before years ago and would happily play again after today.
Really good condition
My son and I played Newbattle and really enjoyed it. The course is in excellent condition. Considering the winter ice and snow we had the greens and tees are really far on. Very playable course with lots of room for the odd stray drive. Nice layout with some lovely holes. Particularly like 16, 17 and 18.
This is a classic, well looked after gem of a course set in a parkland setting in the town of Dalkieth. As this was the first time playing I really enjoyed the challenge yet I felt comfy playing it. The greens despite still not at their prime played really well, no bobbles and read true. Certainly the course is well looked after by staff who care to provide an environment to enjoyed by club member or visitors. There is one par 5 which I really enjoyed. The 17th, which tees off from an elevated tee over the river Esk heading back up to an elevated green, was very enjoyable. A lot of the greens have bunkers well placed to add to the challenge of the course. We were given a warm welcome by the staff and all the members we met on and after our round. Will definitely look forward to playing this course again. If you decide to visit and play I’m sure you will enjoy playing this course
Played Newbattle on Friday 6th Nov.
The condition of the course was terrible.
Very wet and boggy, and 8 of the greens were winter, Why ? I am not sure as the rest were fine.
Yes there is course maintenance happening, this should be highlighted before booking.
I wouldn’t rush back to play this, definitely not in the Autumn/Winter months as it is definitely not good value for money.
I Would not recommend playing this, I am sure there are better courses out there for less money.
Nice Course. Greens in terrible condition not great value for money.
Nice course, although we weren’t able to do the holes in order and was pretty confusing, the course has a few holes that are great to play. Overall the course wasn’t in great condition for my first time playing there. Value for money wasn’t great, only found out on arrival that the course had taken a lot of rain and all the greens where being relayed. The grass on the Fairways and greens where the same length. Personally think you could play a different course in better condition for less money.
Not well signposted
Course wasn’t in best condition but this may have been due to the bad weather the few nights before. The course isn’t well signposted as there’s a bit of a walk from hole 2 to hole 3. I actually missed hole 3 as I couldn’t find it.
They also changed the hole order for some random reason which was a bit odd. Didn’t really make sense (see photo). Would have been difficult to remember if I didn’t take the photo. Winter greens were being used which I wasn’t aware of when I made the order.
I’d be willing to try this course again but maybe in the summer when weather is likely to be better
Great conditions for this time of year
Played 30/10, greens were outstanding for this time of year, fairways pretty decent with a few boggy parts as might be expected from a parkland course. All round great condition and good value, would recommend and would play again.
Good round of golf
Played on a morning when most courses were closed due to heavy overnight rain. Could not fault Newbattle for the conditions underfoot, it played as if there had been no rain at all. Reasonably short course with some terrific holes.
This course is a cracking test
Course layout and condition was excellent, fairways and greens are of a high standard and well manicured, staff were friend,y, club house welcoming and food choice and quality hard to beat. Downside was the flow of play, Had a four ball in front of us that did tend to slow us down, but we too were not in a hurry, completed round in just over 3 hour 30 minutes, l recommend this course to anyone , there’s not many courses in this condition just now, get yourselves down to Newbattle, great course and great value all round.
We have played this course a couple of times before and we’re delighted to get a good deal with Golf Now to play it again. The greens were in immaculate condition, as were the fairways. The staff were very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our round. Will definitely go back there.
