Cardrona Golf Course

Cardrona Golf course only opened for play in 2001 but has matured ever so quickly and is a fantastic parkland layout nestled by the River Tweed and Peebles in southern Scotland.

Designed by Dave Thomas and with all of his usual trademarks intact. Cardona is highly regarded as one of the very best courses in the Scottish borders.

In typical Thomas fashion, you can expect great but challenging bunker placement and huge gingerly contoured greens that blend simultaneously with the natural countryside scenery.

There are several beautiful holes on this golf course, and the resort is perfect for a relaxing getaway. The resort has recently also been added to the European Tour EuroPro quota of courses so do not be fooled by the beautiful layout, The course holds many challenges.

The front nine has several standout holes, most notably the ones making use of the River Tweed. The 6th is a very challenging driving hole, and the utmost respect is required to avoid the burn. However, it would have to be the seventh hole that would make our signature hole.

Signature Hole

The 7th is only a short hole at just over 400 yards, but the tee shot is pivotal. The hole doglegs to the right but too long of a tee shot straight will find water, and cutting the corner is a risk that needs to be calculated precisely.

If the wind is blowing from the left, then forget it. The safe play is a long iron to the dogleg's apex, leaving a short approach to raised green with bunkers looking like magnets to any mishit golf shots.

The Macdonald Cardrona Resort is a lovely spot for large groups and societies that perhaps do not want to drive too far into Scotland but still experience the excellent golf in which the country is famed for.

With fantastic offers available and 1 free in 8 golfers, The Macdonald Cardrona Resort could be perfect for your next UK Golf Break.
