Founded in 1894, Duns Golf Club has gone through many changes in its more than a century of existence, and continues to challenge the locals of Berwickshire as well as traveling golfers.

In 1921, the golf course was moved to its present location at the Hardens. There the course was designed by A.H. Scott, who also had another important job - as Royal Clubmaker to King George V. A nine-hole course until 1997,the course has grown as much in the past decade as it had the previous half-century.

The course plays to 6,298 yards from the back tees, with the women's tees set at 5,475 yards. Subtly rolling fairways give golfers exquisite views of the country side, all leading up to the signature hole - No. 15, which plays to just 107 yards, but from an elevated tee to a two-tiered green with trouble both in front and behind the hole, earning it the nickname "Double Trouble."

Drizzly Duns

Staff very friendly and helpful which is a credit to the club.
2nd time I have played here in 3 weeks, as I enjoyed the course immensely.
Sadly my golf was not as good this time, due to the player and nothing else.
Recommend anyone to play here, as it’s tight and makes u play positional golf.

A real surprise

quite short but well thought out and a great use of the natural features to keep it interesting yet gives you a chance to shoot a low score. The scenery was great and the course condition was really good. Greens were consistent, quite slow, but it is early in the season and they will undoubtedly speed up by the summer. For the price this is really worth a visit and the locals and staff could not have been friendlier. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

Perfect weather
Walked

Hidden Gem

A delightful course in excellent condition considering the deluge of rain the area has suffered in recent weeks. Spectacular views of the surrounding hills. A lot of blind holes with dog-legs and hidden greens over brows. An easy walk which should not be tiring for the reasonably fit. All the staff and members were welcoming and the clubhouse catering was excellent and very fairly priced. I'd recommend it.
