Powfoot Golf Club was founded in 1903 and designed by the legendary James Braid.

The first nine holes present a stiff test in the best links tradition and the final nine encompass a mixture of parkland with gorse and rough.

The ninth hole, known as "Crater," gets its name from the fact that a German bomb was dropped here during World War II. This provides the par-4 hole's defining feature - a great, deep hollow some 80 yards short of the green.

The highlight of the back nine could be No. 11, which has everything that the golf course is famed for. Your tee shot has got to be straight, which is no easy job when that wind is blowing. Once over the incline, you will find the green nestling up to your right, surrounded by shrubs, plus a bunker on either side of the green.

The links part of the course follows the shoreline of the Solway Firth and presents some breathtaking views of the North Lakes mountains and the hills adjacent to Dumfries.

Location: 15 miles south-east of Dumfries, off the B724
