There are several excellent golf courses in and around Dumfries, but our pick is Southerness Golf Club, which is situated right here in the village. The golf course is a championship course, which has been a host to many national events over the years.

The course is a tough challenge which would appeal to the more experienced golfer. For those golfers with a little less experience, and who just want to enjoy a cheap and cheerful round of golf, there is the Solway Links golf course which is a very friendly, family-orientated golf club which is welcoming to all.
