I can highly recommend this little gem of a course. We had an outing a couple of weeks ago and both the welcome and course were brilliant. The greens are its best defence and the fairways are pristine. Overall a joy to play.

Been playing here for 30 years. Never fails to deliver a great golf experience. Greens always run true and staff are very welcoming and friendly.

Probably the best 9 hole golf course I have played. Greens are always top notch and each hole provides a different golfing challenge. If playing 18, the alternative tees provide a totally different look. We have been coming to Gifford for years for our annual “Ryder Cup” competition. The staff are amazing and the clubhouse very comfortable and welcoming. Food and drink are exceptional value for money and I recently gave them 12/10 for their Michelin starred pie, beans and chips. Served to order with the beans on top of my pie.Can’t wait to come back again next year and will try to organise a trip through again, later this summer with some friends, to show off this gem of a golf club.

I attend Gifford Golf Club twice a year along with work colleagues and friends to play a Ryder Cup format. The club cannot be nicer and accommodate 32 of us every year providing us with food and beverages. The course itself is kept to a high standard and is always great to play.

We’ve been going to Gifford for over 10 years, every year, for our work Ryder Cup event. This event has 32 players competing in 32 matches so a bit of a logistical challenge. Gifford however go above and beyond to help facilitate this and nothing is ever too much trouble.The course itself is always a pleasure to play and you’ll struggle to find greens as pure as these for miles around.A brilliant venue with brilliant people.

A fantastic 9 hole well- maintained composite course in a beautiful rural setting. This course is a real hidden gem, and the layout makes you think about each shot . When you reach the greens, you will find they are immaculate. The club house is cute, and the staff are friendly . As visitors, we received a very warm welcome, and enjoyed a great day .

Visited yesterday for a golf outing with a group of 15 work/trade friends. From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic! Friendly and welcoming and the members were also very welcoming. The condition of the course especially the greens were superb! This is an annual outing that we have usually visited various courses, but without hesitation we’ve all agreed to visit again for next years event!Thanks to all at Gifford Golf Club.

Gifford Golf Club, Their Words

The course was laid out in 1904 and it has benefitted from the remarkable fact that during its first 100 years the club had only four head greenkeepers, indicative of their love for the course, continuity of maintenance and steady evolution.

Noted for its quality and layout, a layout that rewards thought and accuracy when approaching the greens that blend with the natural contours of the land.

Today, we can enjoy a pleasant mix of trees and parkland with the Lammermuir Hills as a scenic back-drop.

Our clubhouse is small and comfortable, ideally suited to a 9 hole course, and the staff provide light snacks and drinks or, by prior appointment, meals that are cooked on the premises for visiting parties.
