Par 71

6,298 yards

Duns Golf Club is a course designed sympathetically to blend in with the spectacular, rolling landscape of the Scottish Borders. The 18 holes are naturally beautiful and a real pleasure to play. It can be found at the foot of the Hardens Hill, with stunning views of the countryside and south to the Cheviot Hills across the Tweed Valley, and you will play a course that is superb value for money.

Initially, the course included what is now a field at the top of the present course. However, the members soon realised that target practice from an adjoining rifle range made putting on the third green rather hazardous.

The greens are faster than expected and the course is longer than expected. The course is renowned for being in excellent condition all-year round, especially the greens. And the par-threes play a lot longer than expected, especially into the wind.

Signature Hole

The last of the par-3s on the card is the most demanding, especially into a head or cross wind. ‘Wellrig Burn’ requires you to carry the ball over the picturesque burn that winds its way in front, and the 17th at Duns has wrecked many a good score.
