The Roxburghe Championship Golf Course in Roxburghshire, Scotland, was conceived by The Duke of Roxburghe, an avid golfer who commissioned Dave Thomas to design and construct this challenging Scottish Borders golf course on the Roxburghe estate.

This Par 72 course was inaugurated in 1997 and the result of Thomas’s design bears his distinct hallmark of deep challenging bunkers and large rolling greens. The wide fairways follow the natural contours of the land, making full use of the various changes in elevations, the bunkers are deep and expertly placed and the greens undulating and tricky.

The signature hole is “Viaduct”, an elevated tee offering stunning views of the River Teviot that hug the left of the fairway with an imposing viaduct in the background and the surrounding countryside. Elsewhere the course offers a fantastic array of changes in elevation and a need for a variety of shot shapes to keep you guessing the whole way round.
