Southerness Golf Course
Southerness Golf Course in Dumfries and Galloway was designed by MacKenzie Ross, and built in 1947.
This is a true Championship Links course, measuring 6728 yards from the white "Championship" tees, 6566 yards from the white tees, 6110 yards from the yellow tees and 5622 yards from the red tees.
The SSS is 74 from the Championship tees, 73 from the white, 71 from the yellow and 73 from the red. The par in each case is 69 except the red which is 73.
It is an indication of the length and difficulty of these holes that the SGU course rating produced a SSS higher than the par figures.
The course is situated on the Solway coast giving panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south, and the Galloway Hills to the west.
The terrain is level allowing for easy walking with no hills to climb. Being totally remote from large centres of population a feeling of being well away from the rat race is engendered. This feeling is enhanced by the course design which means that players are seldom aware of others on the course.
MacKenzie Ross’s brilliant design has been complemented by an excellent Head Greenkeeper and staff, who have now had a settled period of several years together which has brought the course into tip top condition.
