Schloss Roxburghe Overview | NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts

A Dave Thomas Design

Schloss Roxburghe only has one golf course, but world-renowned golf course architect Dave Thomas was the man behind the 18-hole layout, which opened in 1997. The former Ryder Cup man did a wonderful job at Roxburghe, using the natural contours for wide fairways and undulating greens.  
The par 72 layout, which measures more than 7,100 yards from the tips. hosted the Scottish Seniors Open from 2001 to 2004. David Oakley and Terry Gale were among the event's winners on the European Seniors Tour.  
The signature hole at Schloss Roxburghe is the par 5 14th hole, which runs alongside the River Teviot. From the elevated tee shot on this 575-yard hole, the famous Roxburgh Viaduct is in view. The par 3 15th also has the viaduct overlooking it, while two bunkers short of the green are there to catch any mis-hit shots on this 175-yard par 3.
