Off Maxwell Park, Dalbeattie, Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland DG5 4LS
Visitors are welcome any day of the week and if a club competition
should be in progress, every effort will be made to accommodate them. The club
steward is in attendance during the day and the office is usually manned during
working hours, so there should be someone around to welcome visitors and book
There are toilets, washing and changing facilities for both ladies and gents.;
Bar and catering facilities are normally available during the season. To help
those with mobility problems, there are buggies for hire at reasonable rates.

Recently this 9 hole parkland course has been considerably extended
and consists of seven par 4's and two par 3's. For gentlemen the par and standard
scratch is 68, and for ladies it is a testing 70. The layout provides an excellent
challenge for golfers of all abilities. There are a few slopes to negotiate
but you are rewarded with some truly magnificent views along the Urr valley, north
to Cairnsmore of Fleet and south to Kippford and the Lake District hills. The
course is a haven for wildlife - birds of prey fly overhead, deer are often seen
and woodland song birds abound in the Rounall wood, which is adjacent to the course
- so you don't have to be a golfer to enjoy this course.
The 4th which is a 363 yard par 4 is memorable for many and varied
reasons. With out of bounds to the left and restrictions to the right - a good
straight drive is required to the corner of the course where a right angle dogleg
is negotiated for a pitch to a smallish green. If you escape with a par here -
you can count your blessings and continue on your way in the knowledge that you
will have another chance to "have a go at it" in your second round.
