Powfoot Golf Club: Glorious views across the Solway Firth from most parts of the course and a very respectable links layout, draws many visiting golfers to sample the undoubted pleasures of golfing at Powfoot.
Here at Powfoot, just west of the historic town of Annan, you'll not see the towering sand dunes associated with many of Scotland's better known links courses. But there is gorse in abundance to underline the layout's seaside links credentials, and to keep you on the straight and narrow on several tee shots. The James Braid-designed course is not however overly penal, unless your shots are really wayward.
The usually excellent greens will thoroughly test your putting skills, with their many slopes and borrows. One of Scotland's lesser known seaside delights.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends (Saturdays after 2:30pm).
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, day tickets, etc. [Last updated: 2023].
Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire.
The closest town to Powfoot (3 miles east) is the Royal Burgh of Annan, with a population of approximately 10,000. The town was made a Burgh of Barony by the Lords of Annandale (the Bruce family) in the 13th century. Each year in July, Annan celebrates its Royal Charter and the boundaries of the Royal Burgh are confirmed when a mounting cavalcade undertakes the Riding of the Marches. Entertainment includes a procession, sports, field displays and massed pipe bands.
