The history of the Scottish Borders comes alive at Minto Golf Course, an 18-hole championship run that will challenge golfers of all levels while giving them scenic views of the local countryside. Near the 17th-century village of Denholm, Minto Golf Club was established in 1928.

A mainstay of the Scottish Borders popular Freedom of the Fairways program, Minto has spent more than a decade in a non-stop effort to improve every aspect of the course. The results are well-maintained fairways and greens and a delightful round of golf. With the hard work of the dedicated staff, Minto Golf Club - set in rolling parkland with mature woodland - has earned a reputation as one of the most well-maintained golf courses in the Southern part of Scotland.

Minto GolfClub's signature hole is undoubtedly No.12, a 267-yard par 4 named "Everest." A tight drive through the tree-lined fairway is demanded, and the approach shot takes you to a a small, postage stamp green where trouble lurks behind. The No. 11 hole, named "Dunion," is possibly the most scenic hole on this incredibly scenic course, as golfers will have awe-inspiring views Dunion Hill on the left and the Border hills to the right.

Following your round at this course that plays more than 5,600 yards and to a par of 69, enjoy a relaxing time on the patio to soak in more of the brilliant Scottish Border ambiance.

A gem of a course

We played the course early morning, as it is very popular. The course is always presented in beautiful condition, it presents a good challenge for golfers of all abilities and the greens especially require your full attention. We enjoyed a very warm welcome from staff and members alike.

Hidden Gem

Well maintained course. Value for money was excellent. I’m a high handicap but found this course both trying and forgiving. Just wish the clubhouse had been open.
Would seriously consider joining this lovely club

The course is MINTo

Last time I played here was about 25 years ago, it was a good course then, but has matureD into an excellent course.
Local knowledge is required on some blind holes, but don’t let that put you off.
The fairways were very lush and greens were excellent, some stunning artistry by the green keepers has to be admired.
Pace of play was ok, as I was playing myself I caught the pair in front up a few times and declined to play through as their pace was nothing be alarmed about, as well as savouring the course and views.
The rough was very forgiven unless you were well wide.
The clubhouse was not open as far as I’m aware, so no ratings for off course amenities.
Green keepers waved as the passed you, but during the current climate, I didn’t meet any other staff.
This course was used for our works outings a few times and I would have no hesitation in recommending Minto for future ones.

Golfing at Minto

A most enjoyable day golfing at Minto. We have played most courses in the Scottish Borders, but this was our first time at Minto, but won't be our last. Checking in was easy with friendly staff. The course was hilly in places but nevertheless enjoyable.. Food following our round was excellent, served again by friendly staff.

Fine Sunday Afternoon

Lovely afternoon on a very quiet parkland course. Marvellous views. Course in great condition if ground a little hard owing to absence of rain. There are a number of holes where on a busy day I would foresee problems with fairways criss-crossing, and some greens/tees close to each other. Some really interesting holes but most greens are unprotected by bunker, but large mature trees do a formidable job of the same. Greens are small, hard and fast, so stopping the ball was challenging. Some of the holes require a hike uphill or down! All in all i would recommend for a late afternoon, early evening outing to finish the day. We played around in just short of 3 hours.

What a stunning course

I absolutely loved my round at Minto golf club.
The course is such a challenge and very well thought out. So many features to test an average golfer like me.
The location is fabulous, the course in great condition and very well cared for. The green keeper need a medal for their work. As does the designer, for his layout and planning.
I can't recommend this course enough, you have to try it.
