Peebles lies just over 20 miles south of Edinburgh, on the banks of the river Tweed, in the midst of the Scottish Border hills. The town is an ancient Royal Burgh favoured by Scots kings. It is a peaceful place, ideal for walking, fishing and golfing.

Peebles Golf Club was founded in 1892 although the present course was first opened in 1908. The original course on the SW boundary of the town can still be seen, in outline, for those interested in golfing history. The present Kirklands course (6,138 yards, par 70) was remodelled in 1933/34 by Harry Colt, designer of, among others, Wentworth and Rye.

Peebles is a championship course, having played host in the past to the Scottish Girls Strokeplay, Scottish Boys Team and Scottish Girls Amateur Championships. The club has also produced a number of successful young golfers, most recently Craig Howie winner of the Scottish Boys Championship in 2012 and Ailsa Bain winner of the Scottish Girls Championship in 2009. The course is considered one of the finest in the Borders for the quality of its turf, greens and the stunning views. It is a prime example of a challenging Scottish upland golf course.
