The Jewel of the South

Moffat Golf Club

Moffat Golf Club was founded in 1884 in fields on Chapel Farm, just to the west of Moffat Cemetery on the Edinburgh Road, though the hilly terrain made it far from ideal for golfing!

In 1904 Ben Sayers, the famous North Berwick professional, was invited to design the present 18-hole golf course at Coatshill.

It was ideal land on which to build a golf course and Ben Sayers successfully incorporated all the natural undulations and hazards into his layout.

Many golfers would agree that he succeeded in creating one of the most attractive, varied and interesting inland courses in the country with its deceptive approach shots combined with subtle greens to ensure that scoring is never easy.

At 5259 yards, SSS 67, par 69, the course has some really testing holes full of natural undulations and hazards - the 9th hole is an experience not to be missed! - and this coupled with the strength and direction of the wind can really make or break your score.

Often referred to as the Jewel of the South, this 18-hole course's enviable location, high on Coatshill, overlooking the beautiful town of Moffat, provides spectacular views from its fairways and greens.
