Moffat terms

Par 70

5,185 yards

This ultra-scenic course sits in the heart of the southern uplands in Scottish border country. Moffat is over 130 years old, as it was founded in 1884, and Ben Sayers was invited to design the 18-hole course in 1904. Despite its lack of yardage, it is hugely enjoyable to play and you will be guaranteed a warm welcome, as well as some friendly advice from the clubs steward on blind tee shots and avoiding the burn.

Often referred to as being ‘short and sweet’, Moffat is nothing of the sort. At under 5,000 yards off the yellow tees, it is as challenging a short course you will find in the area.

Don’t believe you have witnessed the best hole on the course until you visit the last: a driveable par-4 with breathtaking panoramic views. The ambitious will go for the green - but be aware of the burn running across the green - which could make or break your round.

Signature Hole

The signature hole , is undoubtedly the par-3 ninth, called Port Arthur. It consists of a blind shot over a high rock face down onto a hidden green. Visitors regularly comment on the steepness of the hole but also the enjoyment of trying to master it.
