Jedburgh Golf Course risks
Jedburgh is quite a hilly course in places so buggy drivers should take great care particularly when crossing slopes at an angle. Where necessary, buggies are directed to follow a specific course to minimise the risks.
Many holes are parallel to each other and some shots cross other fairways. However, the course is fairly open so it is possible to see other golfers and be aware of their actions. It is an individual golfer’s responsibility to play only when it is safe to do so.
