The course is situated on the Solway coast giving panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south, and the Galloway Hills to the west.
The terrain is level allowing for easy walking with no hills to climb. Being totally remote from large centres of population a feeling of being well away from the rat race is engendered. This feeling is enhanced by the course design which means that players are seldom aware of others on the course.
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.
The 12th hole is generally regarded as the best hole on the course. This is a 421 yard par four with a left to right dog leg. Fairway bunkers right and left require an accurate tee shot. Having split the fairway the hole then opens out to view a green, protected by bunkers on the right, a pond to the left, a large mound guarding front left entry, and the beach ten yards behind the green. The forward view on playing the hole is the simmering Solway Firth, and a large sandy bay opens out to the right as you progress towards the green. A truly memorable hole.
