Peebles lies just over 20 miles south of Edinburgh, on the banks of the river Tweed, in the midst of the Scottish Border hills.
The town is an ancient Royal Burgh favoured by Scots kings. It is a peaceful place, ideal for walking, fishing and golfing. Peebles Golf Club was founded in 1892 although the present course was first opened in 1908. The original course on the SW boundary of the town can still be seen, in outline, for those interested in golfing history. The present Kirklands course (6,138 yards, par 70) was remodelled in 1933/34 by Harry Colt, designer of, among others, Wentworth and Rye.
Peebles is a championship course, having played host in the past to the Scottish Girls, Strokeplay Championship, and Scottish Boys Team Championship; and in 2006 is hosting the Scottish Girls Amateur Championship.
The golf course is not totally flat but the slopes are not unduly demanding. Motorised buggies are available (4 only). Contact the Professional to hire one.
Peebles offers an excellent challenge for all golfers - the tough opening holes are balanced by a more generous stretch where the eighth and ninth lead you back down the hill towards the clubhouse.
The back nine start off fairly gently until the difficult fourteenth hole, culminating in a very testing finish to an enjoyable round of golf
