If you are a good golfer who relishes a challenge, the Southerness Golf Course is one of the finest links courses in the world. Powfoot near Annan is another excellent links course.
Colvend is less challenging but golfers of any standard will enjoy it. Go West along the coast road and it is just beyond Sandyhills.
For children aged 10 and up Craigieknowes Golf Course is outstanding. All par 3 holes and a putting green, beautifully maintained and not too challenging. Head into Kippford and you will pass it on the edge of the village.
For cheap and cheerful pitch’n’putt type golf, try The Solway Links Golf Course on the edge of Southerness - it is well worth a try.
