Playing Arrangements
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 them in.

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. This ensures that their round will be enjoyed to the full. Hire charges for buggies are £12 for 18 holes. For use of more than 18 holes the charge is pro-rata. The buggies take two golfers who must be over the age of eighteen. There is also a practice putting green and a practice area provided.

Green Fees
£18 per round/day ticket (for the more energetic). £10 for 9 holes. Just £50 for a 7 day weekly ticket (subject to Club Competitions). Juniors are charged at half price. We accept the Gateway Pass and there are also concessions when playing with members at £8 for 9 or 18 holes or per day.. Please ask the Secretary for details.

The Course
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.

Notable Holes
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.

How to get there
From Dumfries approach Dalbeattie via the A711. Out of the town, the course is well signposted off the B794 Haugh of Urr road - going through Maxwell Park to a spacious parking area, which is provided for members and visitors. An approach to the clubhouse can be made using the well-worn track through the Rounall Wood, which is also signposted.
