7 reviews of Jedburgh Golf Club
Having recently played a number of courses in Scotland, namely Dalmahoy, The Torrance, Gullane No 2 - I made my way back south via the A68 with the intention of playing The Roxburgh. Unfortunately, the course were engaged with a corporate day; upon driving away from the course I was advised to pay a visit to Jedburgh and by god it didnt disappoint. For me, this is one of the best tracks I have played in a long time, it isnt the longest, but if your not straight you will be punished. I shot a 75, but the wind was straight out of the North, which made it an even bigger test. There are some truly superb holes on this course with the par 3 7th showing itself to be one of the best par 3s I have played in a long time. The par 4 13th is stunning; with views to die for, the hole is all about risk or reward, either take a 6 iron to lay up to a green well protected by a large pond, or alternatively pull the driver and go for the birdie. In summary, if you enjoy a challenge, this course is as good as it gets, well manicured greens, water hazards aplenty, and a nice little quaint Scottish clubhouse. Its a true hidden gem situated in the heart of the Borders - I intend bringing a large party back here next year; one word superb!
Having last played here in 2005 when the course was only 9 holes I did vow then to return at some point and play the new section. I did this on Tuesday and what a nice layout this course now has, I remembered the original 9 and I must say the newer 9 are alot tougher in my opinion where hitting straight is a must. i shot an 82 off 18 handicap so was quite chuffed, greens immaculate even though they could of done with a cut but heavy rains probably prevented this prior to us being there. Other than that course was in good nick some tee boxes on new 9 a bit bare in parts but hey these are minor faults, ice but pricey 'special' in clubhouse afterwards, but the steward/bar lady was very friendly. I shall return again in the near future
we played jedburgh on tuesday 20th july and i have to say i really enjoyed the course.
we had a lovely warm scottish welcome in the old clubhouse before going out to play which always adds to the experience, and a nice meal after play which was homemade and delicious but a little on the pricey side in my opinion.
the course itself was in great condition with the exception of the cutting of the greens and fairways which were a little on the long side. there had been heavy rain before our visit which may have stopped the greenkeepers from carrying out cutting but this didnt stop us from having a great days golf!
the first hole is a downhill par 4 which dog legs left and has trees down the left side. a nice starting hole before going onto a nice little par 3 with the green been surrounded by trees.
i think my favourite hole was possibly the 13th which is a downhill par 4 with a lake at the front of the green which also gives you great views across jedburgh. hitting the fairway here is paramount!
the only holes which didnt really do anything for me were the 11th and 12th but this in no way took anything away from the course. it was a long journey for us but a one i would certainly do again to play the course again in a few years once the new section of the course has "bedded in".
overall rating - 7.5 out of 10
A very nice course with all shots required to tame this well laid out and (sometimes) tricky little test of golf, if you can find the fairways a good score will be your reward but if you take to many chances you could get yourself into a little trouble, having said that we found this was one of the better courses we played in the borders, people very welcoming and a nice bite to eat (as well as a pint or 3). Best hole has to be the 13th, great little par 4 with water in play and absolutely stunning views of the surrounding countryside. If you are in the borders this is one to visit.
played jed mon 10/09/07 1st day of our short scotish tour,tough little course with great value for money out the 8 of us who went this course was the one were most lowest scores came in,think half the problem was if you went in the rough alot of it was gorse bush,but everyone said they enjoyed it,the new 9 holes are well matured and look just like old 9,greens were ok could of done with a trim then they would be excellent as they were plenty of borrow in them,my fav holes were 4th down hill par 4, 8th cracking par 4 dog leg with load gorse bush middle fairway and pond infront of green,10th stroke 1 nice sweeping dog leg,13th down hill par 4 wiv pond infront, we got on for a tenner so carnt grumble but be warned its hilly get a buggy
Played here on our golf trip at end of April. A well laid out course with only a couple of steep climbs. Is extending to 18 holes in the next year or two (are busy now with another 9) these 9 will I am sure be quite some holes as you can see where they are going to go when you are on the 1st tee, when these are complete Jedburgh will be some test, lovely views from the small and quaint clubhouse.
I played this lovely little course last weekend when the weather was scorching. Even though there's only 9 holes it's still a good test of golf. The people were very friendly and I very much enjoyed the day. Jedburgh is a very picturesque town to visit too. I recommend this to anyone visiting the borders.
