Golf Breaks. The Roxburghe - The Roxburghe is an exceptional
parkland layout situated on the banks of the River Teviot and
surrounded by natural woodland. The estate is owned by the Duke
of Roxburghe and he was determined to make this course a few
notches above the rest. So, he commissioned Dave Thomas of Belfry
fame to make the most of a landscape ideally suited for the
purpose. The result of Thomas' design is inspiring with numerous
mammoth sized bunkers, wide and rolling fairways and strategically
placed water features. At 7,111 yards, it's a challenging course
although with the fairways generally on the wide side, it is
also most suitable for the amateur golfer. In 2002 Roxburghe
entered Golf World's top 100 in the British Isles; it is also
the only championship course in the Scottish Borders. An immediate
hit with pro golfers such as Colin Montgomerie, the course record
is held by Sergio Garcia with a 6 under par 66. 18 holes. Par
72. 7,111 yds. Parkland / Woodland.
