Southerness GC

The golf course every single Scottish golfer should play in the south of the country. Without debate, this is one of Scotland’s great links and, were it housed on the Ayrshire coast, would garner far more plaudits than it does. Those who have played it know the course’s merits when it comes to being ranked among the best in the country but there are many who probably won’t know about Southerness due to its geographical location. The course runs along the Solway Firth and is renowned for its tough par-4s, eight of which measure in excess of 400 yards. Both the Scottish Amateur Championship and Scottish Strokeplay Championship have been held here in recent years, providing a tough test to the best players in the country.
