A brief History

Lauder Golf Course is a nine hole golf course played off 17 tees, visitors are permitted to play off the back tees; making Lauder one of the fairest tests of golf in ‘The Scottish Borders’. Situated on gently sloping parkland providing a real challenge to your game, combined with stunning views of the Lauderdale District with the rich history of a course founded in 1896 it makes for an excellent days golfing in The Scottish Borders. With feature holes like ‘The Wood’ and ‘The Quarry’, it will test low handicap golfers; as well as provide a good days golf for those of us with more shots to play with. The initial layout of the course was supervised by Mr. Willie Park, Jnr. British Open Champion in 1887 and 1889. The professional course record of 70 is held by him and this has stood since 1905. The club have a very active membership which is drawn from all parts of the Borders and Edinburgh area, visitors are very welcome to accept our unique ‘Borders Hospitality’.
