Re-arranged Date for Hirsel Gents Western Senior Open
The Hirsel Golf Club is arguably one of Scotland's best kept secrets and indeed has only recently been featured in Golf Monthly's Top 100 Hidden Gems of UK & Ireland!
Golfers who find their way to the club know they have arrived at a special place from the moment they turn the final bend on the long driveway to the Club and see a magnificent view of the imposing clubhouse and the course beyond them.
Nestling on the beautiful and historic Scottish Borders on the outskirts of Coldstream, home of the Coldstream Guards, Hirsel Golf Club offers one of the finest examples of traditional parkland golf in Scotland, The Home of Golf.
The members at The Hirsel are very proud of their club, one of the great tests of golf, and we extend a warm welcome to visitors from far and near. Come and play our hidden gem and soak up the atmosphere that only comes with a course of great stature with a wonderful history.
Most golfers bypass the Borders in search of the great courses of Lothian and Fife. But you will be pleasantly surprised if you slow down and explore the region......
Simply put, The Hirsel course at Coldstream is breathlessly beautiful and pristine, it offers a stern challenge to the accomplished while being sympathetic to the beginner.
Set in rolling woodland with thick shrubbery, fierce rough, water and other hazards in abundance. The current card reads 6024 yards, par 70. Founded in 1948, it is a course of strategic design with a fair margin for error. The fairways are generous, as are the greens, but getting from one to the other calls for more precision than power. Two or three holes demand blind tee shots, and blind second shots as well if the drive is too short or wayward.
On holes shorter than 345 yards, the terrain and holding fairways mean you'll be reaching for a short iron only when your second falls short. Carry the brow of the hill from several tees and you'll get an agreeable kick on.
Added to this cornucopia of golf is a rare setting close to the town of Coldstream, birthplace of the famous Coldstream Guards regiment and part of the Hirsel estate of the Douglas Home family.
Don't miss it.....
