What the club says: McKenzie Ross's brilliant design has been complemented by an excellent Head Greenkeeper and staff, who have now had a settled period of several years together which has brought the course into tip top condition. This has been recognised by "Golf Monthly", who have included Southerness in their list of top 100 courses in Britain and Ireland each year since 1990.

This is a true Championship Links course, measuring 6728 yards from the white (Championship) tees, 6566 from the white tees, 6110 from the yellow tees and 5622 from the red tees.

Wonderful course & club

Played on a relatively calm day for the most part. Beautiful setting and a great place to play golf. Quite easy to get to from nearby Dumfries. Course was in fantastic condition with plenty of run, hitting irons off most tees which helped to keep the ball in play. Hole 12 was the obvious highlight but there wasn't a bad hole on the course. Welcome was incredibly friendly and the food in the clubhouse was lovely. There were quite a few groups on but the pace of play was perfect. Would definitely play again next time I'm back in Scotland

Fantastic Scottish links

A fantastic Scottish links set by a beautiful coastline. Very picturesque and a pleasure to play. Some tight holes with plenty of Scottish heather to catch that wayward shot. Beautiful scenery, excellent clubhouse and shop. Practice facilities very good. Staff welcoming and food quality excellent. A definite return to venue. Loved every minute.

Hidden gem

Not the easiest course to get to but wow...it is worth the drive!

I found this a great mixture of holes. Short par 3's, long par 3's, short par 5's and long par 4's. Every hole offered a different challenge and was in excellent condition for the time of year.

Friendly clubhouse staff and really good food at the end of the round. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed playing Southerness far more than some more heralded courses I have played. I will return!

One of my favourite courses and in great condition. Great welcome and the food and service in the clubhouse is excellent. Unf, we played in driving rain and high winds today which was disappointing.

Another cracking day of weather and the course was in excellent condition. Playing very difficult with an easterly wind.

Played this course for the first time and was very impressed. Small but adequate clubhouse, pro shop, friendly staff, reasonable food and drink. The course itself in superb condition. True links course with plenty of hazards like pot bunkers and unforgiving rough. The trick here is to stay straight for sure, stray from the fairway and there is plenty of gorse and heather to snatch your ball. Most of the greens, which are immaculate, are quite small and difficult to hit as some of the par 4s are over 400yds therefore finding yourself using long irons for 2nd shots if not wind assisted. Only a par 69 course but the ss is around 72-74 says it all really, a tough track but still a very enjoyable and worthwhile experience. The views from the course are stunning as well. Will certainly be returning.

A true test of links golf. Lots of pot bunkers, running fairways and very fast greens. Polite and helpful staff.

Caught this course on a blustery day so proved very tricky but between the group of us some achieved respectable scores.

Gorse and heather catches anything off the fairway but there are some memorable holes, particularly the 12th which ends just before the water starts.

Course in excellent condition but clubhouse and facilities in a little need of a spruce up.
