At the end of the Solway Firth is Powfoot, one of the area's best but least well-known courses. Laid out by James Braid in 1903, it weaves its way along the Firth on undulating links before the last four holes which are almost parkland in feel. Measuring 6,255 yards, it's not long but five holes are more than 400 yards and the third which hugs the shoreline is a beauty while short seventh and the ninth are also real challenges, the ninth especially with a long carry from the tee and a tricky ...

Southerness is set on the remote Solway Firth with panoramic views of Criffel Peak and across to the Lake District of Cumbria. Philip Mackenzie Ross laid out the course and it is considered to be his best creation.

The best holes run along the shore, starting with the eighth and the 12th and 13th are particularly good hol...

With its fine bents and fescues, its humps, bumps, hollows and ‘wispy' rough it could be well used as the very definition of a true links. As such it is to be savoured by all who play here.

Brancepeth Castle has some of the finest par threes and can claim to be one of the North-East's most picturesque courses. Designed by Harry Colt and at 6,400 yards and with a par of 70 it's a sound test.

The latter two are close to 200 yards and play across a deep ravine which weaves through the course. The clubhouse is entered t...
