Newbattle Golf Club
A round at the Newbattle Golf Club kicks off on St. Davids, a par 4 that measures 363 yards and requires a tee shot toward the left of the fairway to set up an approach to the protected green. The chance for big hitters to open up their games comes on the 13th hole, Lucky Dip, a par 5 that measures 566 yards. The hole requires a second shot that gets you around the dogleg for a mid- or short-iron to the green. The final hole at the Newbattle Golf Club, Hame, is a par 4 that measures 354 yards and requires a straight shot to stay inbounds for a mid- or short-iron to the green.

We have played this course a couple of times before and we’re delighted to get a good deal with Golf Now to play it again. The greens were in immaculate condition, as were the fairways. The staff were very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our round. Will definitely go back there.
The greens really are the best
Played this last year and, yes, it's the greens. Sank long putts on the 1st, 3rd and 9th (last two for birdies).
As well as that you have to think about your shots, so much better than 'hit it and hit it again.' E. g. 2nd hole from a elevated tee where you can possibly hit the green but any lay up shot has to be not too short (can't see the green) a d not too long (in the veg patch).
Other memorable holes too, so this is one of my favourites (played 21).
Just one thing, remembered from last year and mentioned by others, please get a direction sign to 3rd tee, it's not hard, but beyond hard to go the wrong way forever and still climb the big elevation in the end
Don’t go left
This course is a fair test of golf. It may seem like a short par 69 course but it can be made difficult thou if you drive the ball too far left on the 1st 8 holes but the smooth greens and the nature scenery and friendly atmosphere make it a great place to play.
Throughly enjoyed it.
Even tho it was wet + windy. Course was in great condition. Greens lighting fast even in the wet conditions. Highly recommend a round here if you never played course before. Professional very accommodating as we got a buggy at the last second. without any hassles. Will play again.
Cracking days golf with my Son
Course was in excellent condition and greens were good. Friendly staff in clubhouse and pro shop. Some really good individual holes. Pace of play was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable day, we will be back
This was my first visit to this course and I enjoyed it immensely. Despite having rained heavily both prior to and during the round , the course stood up well and the greens were terrific. Very scenic setting with two memorable holes , namely the 2nd and 17th.
The professional and the clubhouse staff were very friendly .
Well done Newbattle GC.
The only criticism I have and its minor is that I did not where to go to find the third tee, thankfully a lady walking her dog gave me directions!
Amazing Greens for February
Great round, course in lovely condition for the time of year. Decent price.
I booked a four ball here & the staff on arrival were great. The course is in fabulous condition & is a good test of golf. I’ve played here a few times now & the greens are consistently in fantastic condition. Well done!
Wet day with slow play
Great price for a round through golf now. However the weather was wet and the pace of play was extremely slow. I was held up by a threesome who had very high expectations of their own golf, exceeding their abilities unfortunately. I don't know if they were members or not, but I had to walk off after 11 holes because waiting on every tee for 10 minutes before teeing off got too much and I was no longer enjoying the round. Will consider giving it a second chance in better weather. Didn't use the clubhouse but looked pretty nice.
Still as good as I remembered
It's awhile since I played Newbattle golf course and it is still as good as it was back then - if not better. Despite the hot and dry summer the course was in excellent condition. Was round in three hours which was a bonus too. Highly recommended.
A very interesting layout very well prepared and made to feel welcome.
A parkland course
Found this course quite challenging............greens in excellent condition but hazards around fairways quite difficult if you don't know the layout
Lovely greens and overall condition was top class. Very enjoyable course, not too punishing if you’re a little wayward. Plenty of variety on the holes. Very pleasant round.
This was an excellent course and very flat apart from the 17th (very hilly). Would recommend this coarse to high handicappers as there are wide fairways; Catering excellent.
