GOLF COURSE OF THE MONTH
Southerness is a championship quality, natural links golf course which provides an excellent challenge for all levels of golfer. The course is situated in a fantastic part of South West Scotland located between the beauty of Criffel to the North and the shimmering Solway Firth to the south which leads to panoramic views of Cumbrian and Galloway hills and, on a good day, the Isle of Man. The clubhouse and staff provide a warm welcome and the first class facilities enhance the visitor experience.
The course hosted the 2021 Scottish Amateur Strokeplay Championships.
Southerness was designed by McKenzie Ross and opened for play in 1947 and has now been managed by the current Head Greenkeeper for over 25 years. This period of stability has produced a superb golf course which has earned an enviable reputation and has hosted many national and international events over the past 30 years.
The course terrain is level allowing for easy walking with no hills to climb. It is totally remote from large centres of population which gives a feeling of being well away from the rat race. This is enhanced by the course design which means that players are seldom aware of others on the course. Members and visitors enjoy their golf all year round.
The fairways are generous and in superb condition and the greens are a delight to putt on. The rough is graded from light to punishing. A good drive will be rewarded but beware the wild hook or slice since you might not see your ball again. Southerness will test the skill of champions and give pleasure to all – a true hidden gem.
