A very enjoyable round with the help of a buggy on a cold and windy day. This made the course quite a challenge. We were met and made very welcome on arrival with the buggy ready. A nice bit of advice before we set off made the experience memorable. Thank you to all concerned at Kirkcudbright Golf Club.

We shall definitely be returning.

Great course, a little hilly, with lots of varied holes and well groomed undulating greens. Course was very quiet when we played (late am tee). Friendly welcome. No food available late pm but we were able to buy a sandwich that we could take out with us. Views over Kirkcudbright to the coast are stunning.

A testing, hilly course with fab views over Kirkcudbright and beyond.

We had a 3 ball consisting of a 10 handicapper, a 20 handicapper (myself) and a 24 handicapper.

The course was in terrific condition but required a careful approach with ball placement more important than distance - local knowledge would have been a good asset as there are many blind holes.

A very enjoyable round but with quite tough terrain on a tight course.

We were glad we booked a buggy at £20. This was our first visit to Kirkcudbright Golf Course. Myself 68 years old playing off 23 and grandson aged 13 playing off 18.

It is a course you would need to play quite a few times to get to know your way round. The score card does not show clearly the course layout. I would suggest investing in a course planner if available. The course is quite hilly with plenty of blind shots to play. It is quite demanding physically

and requires a lot of thought. Great course. Great time. We played Friday afternoon but bar was closed when we came in at 4.oopm. Not that it dampened our enjoyment of playing here. A Hidden Gem.

What a great parkland course! Very hilly with a few blind shots with each hole offering a different challenge. Some fantastic views over the estuary and a real joy to play although the greens need a couple more weeks to get into full shape. Great breakfast and warm, friendly and helpful staff and members. A definite revisit !!

We enjoyed a cold but dry day in February on this golf course. Ladies were just returning when we were setting out and they guided us to the first tee.

Quite a few winter greens but that is to be expected. Nice parkland course which seemed to play long but my husband said was just to do with the wind!

Wold return to the course.
