Powfoot Golf Club
Powfoot Golf Club is one of the best golf courses in Scotland, opened in 1903 and redesigned by James Braid twenty years later, Powfoot golf course presents a mix of both links and parkland golf, delivered to the highest standard.
This is an exceptional Championship golf course with all the right ingredients in terms of length, quality, setting and character. The course winds through an extensive plain of sand, with heather lined fairways and a persistent wind blowing off the Solway Firth. Predominantly links, Powfoot’s final 3 holes are of a distinctly parkland nature, a legacy of the Victory Garden that was cultivated here.
The course provides an exceptional challenge with many challenging but rewarding holes, excellent greens of generous size and superb views across the Solway and out towards Criffel in the Dumfries & Galloway Region.
A must play for experienced golfers visiting Dumfries & Galloway. Tee times must be booked in advance.
The 16th hole, known as Ryehill, requires an imaginative tee shot to avoid the rough to the left and out of bounds on the right. Even if you hit it well, you’ll have a challenging second shot to an elevated green which slopes from back to front.
