Hawick Golf Club
The Hawick Golf Club has been in existence since 1873. The club is private with the course rented from Scottish Borders council, but maintained by the club. The Clubhouse was extensively refurbished in 1996 and is now very comfortable with attractive dining rooms and lounges as well. Visitors facilities include showers etc. Bar and restaurant facilities are available throughout the season. Visitors are welcome check availability.
Winding hillside course with most holes providing spectacular views of the Border Hills. A number of long par 4's and tricky bunkered par 3's make it a good test of golf. A tough start with the first and second holes alongside a road (out of bounds) means that accuracy is vital.

Hawick a little gem
Nice course in good condition bearing in mind they had no rain for at least three weeks before we played. Greens were fair and again in good condition. We paid on line which was useful as there as no one in the club house when we arrived. Course is a bit hilly but no problem with electric trolleys. Only downside was a group of visitors in front who were very reticent to let us through as we were a mixed couple and they held us up for at least 6 holes before we embarrassed them into letting us through. Worth playing for the experience especially on the hot deals rate.
This course is in great condition and a challenge for all, great day of golf.
'cheap and cheerful'
No-one in attendance at club house when we arrived so can't comment on these facilities. Very much on slopes so not a course for those who find hills a challenge, great views though. Skipped four holes, which was fairly easy as course not busy. Confusing at times as a few blind holes and shared fairways and fairways which cross others. Sorry, didn't like it but weather not good so maybe a bright calm sunny day would show it in a better light!.
Not expensive so good value if you want 'cheap and cheerful'
hilly but satisfying
golf course was in reasonable condition with some interesting holes, others playing the course were friendly and helpful.
game booked for 11.30 arrived at 10.45, (not always so prompt, been known to run on to tee), clubhouse was open but not manned. clubhouse sign said bar opened midday. didn't have time after round to spend time in clubhouse, but would have enjoyed a pre-round coffee and roll.
If you want a moderately challenging game of golf with stunning views, then this is for you! Friendly staff and members made us feel very welcome. Would recommend to play when in the Borders.
Hi did not like.... The staff are very ignorant I found there club house very dirty, old just not very nice and the course not much better... The foods okay (for a dog)... Thanks vertish but no thanks
