Southerness Golf Club
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. A little over 6,500 yards with a par of 69, it's a tough test with two short par fives offering realistic birdie opportunities, but there are eight par fours over 400 yards. The best holes run along the shore, starting with the eighth and the 12th and 13th are particularly good holes. This is a real hidden gem.
