The original course was laid out by William Park, Musselburgh Open Golf Champion, who wrote in his brief ‘the turf is very good and resembles very much the turf to be found on seaside courses’.

The only interruption in the Club’s history took place in 1948 when the river Tweed rose some 17 feet above normal level, once in a century flood, and so much damage was done that the Club was forced to close down. Ten years later the Club was reformed on a temporary lease and was redesigned by John Shade, Duddingston. Play resumed in 1958 and through strenuous efforts by a few members and with financial support from the local community the Club flourished. The fortunes of the Club changed dramatically in 1979 when the course was purchased out right and a few years later in 1985 a new clubhouse was built. Unlike other Border courses the terrain is flat and presents few difficulties other than the River Tweed, which runs the length of the course.
