Peebles Golf Club which was founded in 1892 although the present Kirklands course was first opened in 1908. Later redesigned by Harry Colt the course is well-known for the quality of its fairways, greens and its stunning views.

While not as flat as some other courses in the area, Peebles’ interesting fairways only add to the experience of what is a true Scottish upland course. The 18 holes are full of gems including the short par four sixth which is a dog leg right to left down hill to a green guarded by a small burn and enclosed in trees, and the 18th a par five that bends slightly to the finish. The 18th sees you playing back down towards the town enjoying views of the surrounding hills before an inviting approach shot to a slightly raised green.
