Built on a delightful piece of land, where the valley meets the River Tweed, the 18-hole Championship Course at the Macdonald Cardrona Hotel Golf & Country Club is as fantastic as it is formidable. It is just over ten-years-old, having opened to the public in 2001, and it is characterised by several large bunkers and gently undulating, tricky greens. Accuracy over length is, without question, the principle requirement for scoring well on it. One of the finest resort courses that Scotland has to offer, Cardrona is a perfect place to go.
The exclusive village of Cardrona was the first new community development in the Scottish Borders since the 18th century.
Be very careful on the par-5 sixth hole as slightly wayward drives have the habit of finding their way into the nearby burn.
7th - While the sixth is a fantastic driving hole, the seventh is probably the course's highlight. Requiring an accurate drive with trees on the right and bunkers to the left, the approach shot is even more of a challenge on this 402-yard par-4 to find an elevated, well-protected green.
