Tree-lined fairways and challenging water features abound at the Colvend Golf Club parkland layout, situated on the gorgeous Solway Coast, conveniently located near Dumfries, Southerness, Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie. There are views over the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian Fells and, on a good day, offering a glimpse of the Isle of Man.

The original nine holes (the first nine) are short in distance but are very demanding with small, well-guarded greens and undulating fairways.

The 12th hole, which is arguably the feature hole, needs a long, well-placed drive to a fairway surrounded by out of bounds on the left and trees on the right. It then requires a very well-struck and well-placed shot over water to a contoured green.

The par-4 dogleg 18th hole requires an accurate tee shot between trees right and left and an accurate second shot to a sloping green which is protected by a burn to the front and side, a pond at the rear and trees all around. This hole was featured as one of the most picturesque holes in Scotland in a Scottish Golf Calendar from 2005.

Location: Six miles from Dalbeattie on A710 Solway coast road from Dumfries

    had four enjoyable days playing golf at this club whilst on holiday in the area.. The course was challenging and interesting with great views. The Steward was fantastic and I would recommend playing here.

    Short, in 2010 terms, but perfectly formed, this is a real find in the South West of Scotland. Ideal for golfers at any level who will find different challenges to test their game. The views are spectacular and provide a backdrop you can only hope your game will match.

    I played in both summer and mid february on normal greens and the course does hold up better than most when the weather has closed many others in the area.

    Play this course and you will not be disappointed. For those with any aversion to a less than flat course, book your golf buggy early.
