Hirsel Golf Club, founded in 1948, appeals to all levels of golfers. The historic and picturesque golf course was referred to in one magazine as "The Augusta of the North."

Hirsel, a parkland golf course nestled on the Scottish border on the outskirts of Coldstream, offers great natural beauty and breathtaking views over the Cheviot Hills and surrounding countryside. It features 18 very different holes strategically designed to make the most of the undulations of the hills and valleys and the natural hazards presented by a very large number of majestic, mature trees and the winding Leet River.

The golf course measures 6,024 yards. Par is 70 for men and 72 for women, with both par 5s in the last seven holes.

Just book it, you will not be disappointed. This is one of the best courses in the Borders. Anyone who plays this course would undoubtably rebook it again. Wonderful greens you wont find any better. Great staff and the clubhouse food is great. Try it and see for yourself....

Played here on the Monday after the hottest weekend of the year - as a result there was quite a lot of green watering going on but this did not detract from the enjoyment of playing this wonderful course. Arrived at the course an hour before booked time and Pro advised that I might like to tee-off early as their was a regular group of members due to go out that would hold me up if I started at due time.

Quite a short course but a marvellous variety of holes - certainly a course that needs a couple of rounds to get to know the best way to play it. Many pars and a couple of birdies made it a most enjoyable round and would definitely recommend this as a course to play if visiting the Borders/Northumberland.

One note was that the bar was not available on finishing the round as "the young lady had had to go home" so have not been able to properly comment on the hospitality in the clubhouse.

We booked a 4 ball at a great price. No one had heard of it never mind played it before. Safe to say we'll all be back. Great variety and challenge throughout. The course is clearly well looked after by the green staff. Can't recommend this course enough.

I've played the Hirsel quite a few times and have always looked forward to returning. It's not a long course but has some interesting holes where the big club is not always the best option. The staff in the pro shop and clubhouse were very friendly and helpful. The food has always been tasty, well cooked and plentiful although I did not have food this visit. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who might be thinking about visiting.
