Powfoot Golf Club was founded in 1903 and designed by the legendary James Braid. The first nine holes present a stiff test in the best links tradition and the final nine encompass a mixture of parkland with gorse and rough. The ninth hole, known as "Crater," gets its name from the fact that a German bomb was dropped here during World War II. This provides the par-4 hole's defining feature - a great, deep hollow some 80 yards short of the green. The highlight of the back nine could be No. 11, which has everything that the golf course is famed for. Your tee shot has got to be straight, which is no easy job when that wind is blowing. Once over the incline, you will find the green nestling up to your right, surrounded by shrubs, plus a bunker on either side of the green. The links part of the course follows the shoreline of the Solway Firth and presents some breathtaking views of the North Lakes mountains and the hills adjacent to Dumfries.

Windy weather

Great first visit to Powfoot gc.

Played as a four ball on our way back from Carnoustie. Very good links course, quite challenging especially into the wind, the course was in very good condition, the greens were good but been hollow tined, not sure why with all this very dry weather we have been having recently, some very tricky putts on a few very undulating greens. All the staff from the Lady in the pro`s shop to the bar staff and the few members we spoke to were very friendly. Would highly recommend playing Powfoot golf club, you will not be disappointed if you like links golf.

Fantastic

Booked using the American golf free round voucher so it cost me and a friend £8 each but I would happily have paid full price. Course was in fantastic condition, greens were lightning quick. Arrived early and had a quick drink in the clubhouse looking over the first tee before teeing off early. Staff were friendly and welcoming. At some points it seemed like we had the course to ourselves. Lovely views right by the coast. Will certainly be back

Perfect weather

Excellent would return hopefully in the near future.

Excellent course could imagine it would be difficult when the wind blows not a lot of deep rough unless you strayed into the prickly stuff.
