The 10th green at Galashiels Golf Course
The 10th green at Galashiels Golf Course
In the foreground is the two-tier 10th green on the course with golfers in the background on the 15th green playing in a competition on 01/03/08. Today is the final time that the course will be an 18 hole layout as holes 10 to 16 will be closed. For an explanation of this closure, see NT5036 : Playing the 15th hole at Galashiels Golf Course for the final time. Most of the second nine holes are on the top of Blaikie's Hill, with the 12th tee the highest point on the course at the 300m contour. This provides stunning panoramic views of the town and Border hills and valleys, but can test the best golfer on a windy day such as this - note the angle of the flagstick. I watched a few groups play through here and the flagstick was eventually blown out of the hole everytime the green was cleared.
