A VERY different type of battle is taking place in the Borders town of Duns these days.

The Battle of Duns took place in 1639 on Duns Law, just north of the attractive town.

Today, just below that bloody site, much gentler conflicts are played out daily on the fairways and the greens of Duns Golf Club.

Many Borders golf courses can claim spectacular views of the Border hills but Duns says that none except Duns can say that the golf course itself matches the splendour of its surroundings.

A firm but fair challenge awaits all levels of golfer, wide fairways, true greens and the odd splash of water make for a truly memorable round.

Duns is closer to Northumberland than many would think - 30 minutes from Alnwick and you are on the first tee ready to do battle.

A far friendlier welcome than that of 1639 awaits!
