In Their Words ...........
The Hirsel Golf Club is arguably one of Scotland's best kept secrets and indeed has only recently been featured in Golf Monthly's Top 100 Hidden Gems of UK & Ireland!. Nestling on the beautiful and historic Scottish Borders on the outskirts of Coldstream, home of the Coldstream Guards, Hirsel Golf Club offers one of the finest examples of traditional parkland golf in Scotland, The Home of Golf. Simply put, The Hirsel course at Coldstream is breathlessly beautiful and pristine, it offers a stern challenge to the accomplished while being sympathetic to the beginner.
Set in rolling woodland with thick shrubbery, fierce rough, water and other hazards in abundance. The current card reads 6024 yards, par 70. Founded in 1948, it is a course of strategic design with a fair margin for error. The fairways are generous, as are the greens, but getting from one to the other calls for more precision than power. Two or three holes demand blind tee shots, and blind second shots as well if the drive is too short or wayward. On holes shorter than 345 yards, the terrain and holding fairways mean you'll be reaching for a short iron only when your second falls short. Carry the brow of the hill from several tees and you'll get an agreeable kick on.
Added to this cornucopia of golf is a rare setting close to the town of Coldstream, birthplace of the famous Coldstream Guards regiment and part of the Hirsel estate of the Douglas Home family.
If you love eating out, Greens is the perfect place for you. We serve great food, coffee,beer and wine, and the service is fantastic. We must stress that the restaurant is open to ALL, with absolutely no dress restrictions and an extremely relaxed atmosphere!
