Rating 0.0

Famous for its wildlife and picturesque views of Kirk Loch, Lochmaben Golf Course presents a somewhat surreal experience to any golfer.

The attractive 18-hole parkland golf course occupies a historic area around Kirk Loch. Close by the second green is the site of Bruce Castle. On the third hole, golfers can see the huge defensive ditch, which helped protect the castle.

The par-70 course's signature hole is the 120-yard eighth hole, which requires a tee shot across a corner of Kirk Loch.

Lochmaben is an ancient town four miles west of Lockerbie on the main road between it and Dumfries. Its location is unusual as it is hemmed in by three separate lochs: Castle Loch to the south, Kirk Loch to the southwest, and Mill Loch to the northwest. Lochmaben's origins date back at least as far as the building of the castle by the Bruce family in the 1160s.

Lovely setting around Kirk Loch

Played here several years ago and decided to visit again. What a great setting and such a lovely course. Well maintained fairways and greens no wonder so many visitors to the area return. If you do play be sure to visit the 19th where you can sample a very reasonable menu in a very friendly atmosphere.

Great course. Not to be overlooked.

We played this as a 4ball and thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience.
The cook made our meals (claire) and they were very cheap but superb quality.
Greens were
the best out of the 3 we played in our trip (county/galloway)
Course is in great condition and we weren't held up once. Weather was great, staff are very friendly and the playing member were very courteous when letting us through.
100% will be back.

Perfect weather

Lochmaben Stroll

After a recommendation to play I decided to try the course. Booked in with friendly staff. Weather was warm and dry. Course has been exposed to the intense heat of the summer. Some greens were a little bumpy due to the weather however most were fine and true. My good lady (handicap33) handled the course and scored well. We enjoyed the course and would return with no hesitation.
