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.

The course has been opened up with many bushes and trees removed allowing more sea views. The greens are also excellent all year round.

Exceptional Condition for December

I played Southerness in early December having wanted to play the course for years but just not having the chance. It didnt disappoint with excellent routing and outstanding condition for the time of year. Some fabulous holes (13th was a particular favourite). Will definitely return in the summer.

Lovely classic links

Played here as a one ball, on a Wednesday morning. Met two members, one lady and one gent, who talked me through the way to go and explained anything I needed answering. The course has the classic links look with revetted faced bunkers and gorse and heather. The greens were true and putted very well. The course has five par 3s, ranging in length from 150 yds. to 200 yds., which test all clubs in the bag. The fairways are not too tight, but there is gorse and heather to protect the old girl. All members of staff were pleasant and very helpful.

Southerness Championship Links.

Absulute hidden gem, go and putt on the best greens surfaces in Scotland and possibly the UK, full fescue grass, Highest medal tees stroke rating in Scotland but very fair and picturesque with gorgeous views over the Galloway hills and the Solway Firth. Home of the Scottish Amateur match play and Scottish Amateur Stoke Play Championships every 10 years. Weekend and mid-week green fees under £100. Designed by Philip McKenzie Ross of Turnberry fame and the only Championship Links built in the second half of the 20th century in Britain. Can be a bit windy off the Solway on occasion but very mild climate off the Gulf Stream running along the Solway and rairly closed for frost.

Wonderfull golf course. CIassic links from Philip Mckenzie Ross of Turnberry and Castletown fame. Fescue greens of the very highest standard and the best I've played with the possible exception of County Lough.

Classic Links

We played this course in early October 2021. A classic links course. Very flat, lots of gorse and other impenetrable bushes. Wonderful greens. Great layout. I would say that this is one of the best golf courses I have ever played, and a “must play” for any serious golfer.

Worth the trip

Played at Southerness for the first time and what a treat it was. Yes, it is off the beaten track, but so worth the drive. Fortunately we had blue skies & no wind, so a rare treat there apparently. Stunning views, course in immaculate condition, challenging par 3s and overall a very enjoyable round. Food, drink and general reception in the pro shop/club house also first class.

Great course - Great to be back

Played this with my dad on a lovey summers day with very little wind (which is not normal) I just love this course as I have played it a few times now. Links golf is so much better than my course in Leeds, greens are great, fairways are a real test to hit and views are unreal
