Golf Courses

Blacknest, Thornhill, Dumfries And Galloway, DG3 5DW

    Offering a blend of park and heathland with magnificent panoramic views, this hidden gem of a course is set in the heart of the picturesque Southern Uplands.

    Established in 1893 as a 9-hole course and extended to 18-holes in 1979, Thornhill (6085 yards, SSS 70, par 71) provides a good test for all levels of golfer.

    The club has a fine record in amateur competition, boasting honours in both national team and single events. In fact, several members have gone on to enjoy successful professional careers, the most notable being Andrew Coltart.

    During the week it is relatively easy to get on the course although booking is advisable during the summer and weekends. Golfing parties are welcome with the only restriction on visitor tee times being competition days.
