About the Club

Southerness Golf Course was designed by McKenzie Ross, and built in 1947. This is a true Championship Links course, measuring 6566 yards from the white tees and 6106 from the yellow tees.

The SSS is 73 from the white tees and 70 from the yellow. The par in each case is 69 having two par 5s and five par 3s.

It is an indication of the length and difficulty of these holes that the SGU course rating produced a SSS higher than the par figures.

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.

Directions

Southerness Golf Course lies in Dumfries and Galloway, the southernmost region of Scotland. It is located right on the Shoreline of the Solway Firth, directly opposite the lake district, and the North of England. Southerness itself is some 14 miles from Dumfries, the largest town in the South. Dumfries itself is well connected to the major Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Southerness is only two hours by car from Glasgow International Airport.
