We have over thirty golf courses across Dumfries & Galloway.

Here are a few of the courses worth considering when planning your stay with us.


Lockerbie Golf Club
18 holes, 5418 yards, Par 67, SSS 67
The 18 hole parkland course is in an open agricultural setting with some water hazards, which add to the challenge.

Dumfries & County Golf Club
18 holes, 5918 yards, Par 69, SSS 69
A beautiful 18 hole course in undulating parkland bordering the River Nith where Robert Burns used to walk.

Dumfries & Galloway Golf Club
18 holes, 6309 yards, Par 70, SSS 71
A challenging and varied 18 hole course set on the outskirts of Dumfries.

Thornhill Golf Club
18 holes, 6085 yards, Par 71, SSS 70
A mix of parkland and heathland in Mid Nithsdale about 25 miles from the hotel. The journey is well worth it for this interesting course surrounded by wonderful scenery. The rare red squirrel is still seen in some of the wooded areas.

Southerness Golf Club
18 holes, 6566 yards, Par 69, SSS 73
Championship links course. The heather and gorse together with the prevailing south-westerly wind make this excellent course a real challenge. Not recommended for beginners but considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of golf in Dumfries & Galloway.

Colvend Golf Club
18 holes, 5250 yards, Par 69, SSS 67
This shorter-than average course, which was extended to 18 holes, has received regular praise from our visiting parties. A little hilly in parts but you will be rewarded with the same wonderful views as its illustrious nearby neighbour, Southerness.

Lochmaben Golf Club
18 holes, 5954 yards, Par 70, SSS 70
Occupying an historic area around the Kirk Loch, this is an 18 hole parkland course and is one of our most scenic courses. The area has deep associations with Robert the Bruce.

Moffat Golf Club
18 holes, 5218 yards, Par 69, SSS 67
A lovely upland course designed by Ben Sayers and opened in 1884. This can be a real test with the direction and strength of the wind adding to the challenge. The absolutely outstanding views alone make the 22 mile journey from Powfoot worthwhile.

Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club
18 holes, 6070 yards, SSS 70
On the other side of the Solway in Cumbria this is one of England’s finest links courses. Playing Silloth, Powfoot and Southerness will give you a
real feast of links golf.
