Played 11th March 2015. Great layout - a true links. The course was in very good condition for the time of year. Plenty of variety. The wind was blowing very hard so made it a stiff challenge. Lovely big greens (but plenty of slopes!). Booking via the last minute websites means you it is excellent value. I'll be back in the summer to beat my score. Agree with the last post - Michael the pro is very helpful.

Played week of 23rd June 14. Just brilliant is all I can say, one of the best courses I've played in Scotland. Welcome from Michael was great booked me in and advised I must play a few balls off the back tee of the 6th, awesome hole, I came off with a par from my first ball but the course got me back on the 7th which is just as awesome, rest of the course stacks up too. Some shorter & long par 4's, tricky doglegs with risk/rewards for big hitters, lots of burns, ponds/deep dips in front of par 3's & par 5 greens, some severe tier'd greens. Par 5 holes to start & finish not many of them around! Can't begin to imagine how hard this place would to play be in a strong wind!
Loved it, needless to say I will be back soon

Played here on June 11th with a fourball using greenfree vouchers. ( £20 each )Received a friendly welcome from the pro and the course was in superb condition. Not the first time I've played and certainly not the last. A must if visiting the area.

Played Eyemouth on Saturday 19th March in an open competition and for £10 was worth every penny, even though I didn't play fantastic.

Nice clubhouse with panoramic views of the course and well stocked pro shop.

The first 2 holes are average, then the course starts getting interesting. A nice little par 3 on the 3rd, and some nice dog legged holes. Can't leave a review without mentioning the 6th hole, and what a hole that is! Just to get over the sea and anywhere near the green is an achievement. I can imagine this hole could make you use any club in your bag depending on the wind. There was a slight hold up at this part of the course with people not making it over the water and having to use the drop zone. But there is no better place to be held up!

The whole course is well layed out, with my favourites being the 3rd, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 13th.

Will definitely return in the summer months.

We played Eymouth on Friday 3rd Sept using the Bunkered 2-4-1 scheme.What a bargain and a fantastic course.The weather was very warm with little wind although this doesnt make it easy!The sixth hole is rightly the star of the course with a carry over a cliff from the back tees.Course was in excellent condition with some of the trickiest greens you will ever play.In summary a course not to be missed!

Day four of our tour of the Borders found us driving 60 odd miles to Eyemouth on the east coast 11/9/2008. A lovely day, warm sunshine and light winds.
This is a beautiful spot to perch a golf course, great views out over the sea with the course stretching out from the clubhouse. Nice welcome from the Pro, we teamed up with two local lads of similar ages, (mature that is) and took them on at match play. The first 4/5 holes play around the club house and lull you into a false sense of security about the task in hand, but once you drop down and over the road the challenge begins. Being links style, there often cases where you find other golfers wondering across your fairway to play shots back to a green behind you, but just pause and wait for them to clear whilst you take the panoramic scenes around you. Every one talks about the sixth, and rightly so, it is great golf hole and a real challenge off the back tees, I was the only one not to carry the green, and 2 out of the 3 made par! so that cost me drinks all round from the flask.
Gradually the course tightens its grip on your game and pars become scarcer as the greens become more difficult, a chip landing short on some holes sees your ball running back to your feet, whilst two feet too long leaves you a wicked down hill putt quite frightening. Eventually the course wanders back to the club house, where every one should make room for the superb fish and chips, fresh from the quay, absolutely gorgeous! My favourite course of the week, and the result of our match, halved the front, back and overall, a very fair outcome.

I agree with Mr Pagan.
My friends and I played Eyemouth in May this year during the week the fairways had not been cut. I considered it to be the best course we played in the Borders. The golf was challenging, the greens were true and the views were spectacular. The fairway grass was a little long but this just made the course play longer making it even more of a challenge.
We enjoyed the Eyemouth experience so much that we intend to return when we are next in the Borders in a few weeks.

I find the comments from Mr Snelman quite strange.
I am a member at Eyemouth and find the course is up to a tremendous standard all of the year.
The fairways have recently been sprayed for weeds and as the plant needs time to take the chemical in the fairways weren't cut for one week. Although i would not think this would take away from the enjoyment of the round.
The greens are of a good standard even considering the cold winds off the sea we have endured over the last three or four weeks and the lack of growth.
The comments from other visitors are of nothing but enjoyment of one of the best presented courses in the Borders with outstanding views.
Please do come and see that these comments are incorrect.

I'm sorry to report that the greens and fairways were quite poor. At £35 for the round this did not represent good value.
There are one or two outstanding holes but by and large our Eyemouth experience was disappointing and did not represent good value.

Played the course on a lovely still and sunny morning, probably the easiest conditions you'll get here. I can imagine it being a much tougher test on a windy day.
The course was in excellent condition with some great holes and views along the coast, the highlights being the par 3 fith hole over the cliffs (pretty long too off the back tees!) and the sixth hole playing into the green on the cliff edge. The back 9 returns inland but the holes still having a links look and feel to them. The greens were very good, running true and fairly fast.
Excellent culbhouse with spectacular views over the course and coastline from the upstairs glass-fronted bar/resturant.
Definately worth playing when along the east coast.

Just played this course (Saturday 17 March 2007) on the way down from our annual tour of east lothian. We played luffness, muirfield and north berwick west and i can only say, eyemouth stood up very well against the quality of tracks just mentioned. a very friendly and welcoming club which we played for just £15!! winter rates. no temporary tees or greens, (greens were hollowtined) and fantastic condition all round. got to be the best ever par 3 i have played, the 6th with a dramatic cliff edge shot, all carry to a tough green, just one of some super holes. very testing in the windy conditions but all in all an excellent point to stop and play 18 either on the way up or down from the east coast of scotland. also great food and great value with a comfortable clubhouse with spectacular panoramic views of the course. we will definately be back

Very disappointing.We were greatly looking forward to playing this course as the highlight of our 4 day tour in which we also played Minto,Torwoodlee and Peebles.The condition of this course was poor in comparison to the other 3.The tees were bare and uneven,the bunkers had no sand and seemed not to have been raked for years.The greens had been hollow tined and dressed (which we were not told about)

What an excellent course!! This was the final game of golf on our 4 day trip and we couldn't have chosen a better course to play! The clubhouse is brilliant with fantastic views and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The food was good and reasonably priced and really added to the day. The course itself was in excellent condition and gave a hard but fair challange! The 6th hole has been voted the best golf hole in the county and you can see why when your standing on the tee box! It's also a VERY tough shot and I wouldn't like to play it when there is a strong wind in your face! If your in the area I would highly recommend it - you won't be disappointed! I will definatly be returning in the very near future!

Played Eyemouth on the 27th April,the course was it beautiful condition, with stunning views.I found it very hard to hold any approch shots onto the greens(very Hard) Maybe this was due to no rain fall, but this does not take anything away from the course conditions as they were perfect.The staff were very friendly and polite.

Played on 27 April 06, course was in good condition, clubhouse is magnificent and the views across the course can be seen from every window, has two or three climbs to certain holes but in general ok to walk, the 6th is a daunting shot which i missed and ended up on the beach, this is the uk's most extraordinary hole and i can see why, across a gully cliff to cliff. Some greens were most difficult to putt on purely with the run and angle of some of them so shots in have to be very accurate or you will lose out. All in all a very good course which we will definately play again, the food afterwards was cheap and good and the staff were friendly.

Although beside the sea the turf is more parkland than links. A good test particularly as with many seaside courses when the wind blows. Good value for money and well worth a visit.

Over tthe last two years Eyemouth has improved both on and off the course. The club has invested in a new fleet of machinery which has improved the appearance of the course.Work is ongoing to improve tees and bunkers on certain holes of the course, Additional teeing space is being constructed to ensure that the golfer can play the full length course all year. If you have played before, come again and see the difference if you have not played come and Take The Challenge and play the famous 6th hole .Voted Britains No1 extra odinary Golf Hole.

Me and my wife played the course in the beginning of june. It is a most challenging course with some very tough par 4-holes in the backnine. Beautiful scenery and a very enjoyable atmosphere overall.
The course were not in a 100% perfect condition but when it is later on in the summer it is truly a great test of golf.
We warmly recommend it!

Played this course 9th November 2002
Superb. The best winter course I've played.
Course in great condition considering all the rain we've had.
Not the most demanding links I've played (you can actually see your ball land from your tee shot) but the real test is your approach shots to the green and the greens themselves.
Some of the holes are very daunting, large carrys and meandering streams abound.
A fantastic clubhouse, you can see virtually every hole.
Finally please leave that 607 yard par five (Hole 13) and those greens alone, these challenges make it a great course.

A beautiful and, at times, spectacular course. A very fair test of golf. Fairways and greens in excellent condition, and the clubhouse was most welcoming. Highly recommended!

We have played 17 courses in the Borders on the Freedom to Fairways Scheme. We rate Eyemouth the 3rd best. Eyemouth is a new links course (the only links in the Borders). It longer than most other Borders course and can feel very long in a gale. Some great holes, including the unforgetable 170 yd 6th hole played from one cliff to the next. Remarkably we all made it first time. Excellent club house. Well worth a stop if you are passing on the A1.

Played here in a local competition, interesting and very challenging course. Some holes are a bit unfair with ridiculous sloping greens, especially 15, where if the green is shaved down you're lucky to be able to stop the ball on the green. Definitely worth a visit, you'll love it or hate it.
