THINGS TO DO GOLF.
MELROSE 5TH GREEN and ST BOSWELLS 2ND green in March great condition after winter.
The Borders has some fantastic golfing around the area, great value and for a short break you can have great fun. Our cottage has 2 courses only 5 minutes apart both nine holes and fantastic golf to be had, you have a river-side course and a hill land course at Melrose great value for money and fantastic condition. I really would think that 18 holes on a week day at either would not disappoint and value wise unreal. You can go further afield 5 miles to Galashiels to the Torrwoodlea and have 18 hole course, again very interesting and a bit more climbing and walking but quite ok a course of two halfs old and new and the new has blended in. Peebles has a very good course an only 24 miles away and my old course for 30 years a great challenge and a must play only 45 minutes away in fantastic condition and a very interesting layout again new and old blended in very well. There is the big 2 Cardrona and roxburgh a huge challenge and to be honest I'm a 6 handicapper and i get fed up half way round its big hitting and quite donting plus a long way round but maybe what you are looking for plus the chance to put your driver to the test, maybe I'm getting old but its St boswells then peebles would be my choice and in that order as you will be ready. I can get tee times if need. The cottage is there for that great golfing weekend for the guys looking for a base right in the middle or the ladies and why not try out something totally different a day or half days salmon fishing plus professional casting tuition and rods, all there for you who knows you might get hooked on both. Get in-touch and we can sort out all the things that make you stay at Speycaster one to remember. A holiday break with activities on the door step. Cheers Kevin.
