For golfers, Dumfries & Galloway is a natural choice. As well as affordability and beautiful surroundings, it has, perhaps more importantly, a superb array of golf venues ranging from championship links courses to parkland layouts.

The region offers the avid sportsman three intriguing golf trails to follow, each with different and unparalleled golfing experiences: the Tiger Trail, the Challenge Trail and the Little Gems Trail.

The Tiger Trail centres on the region’s premier courses which have exceptional and more robust layouts. You’ll find all the right ingredients in terms of length, quality, setting and character, allowing you to really test your game. The acclaimed Southerness and Powfoot courses are just two of the many highlights on the trail. The former is set on a stunning stretch of the Solway Firth and has hosted many of the sport’s leading tournaments. The nearby Powfoot is one of the many courses in Dumfries & Galloway designed and created by five-time Open champion, James Braid.

The Challenge Trail is a collection of memorable courses suited to the majority of golfers from designers such as Braid, as well as Willie Fernie and Ben Sayers. There is no shortage of quality here either with excellent courses like Wigtownshire County links course, which challenges low and high handicappers and boasts stunning views of Luce Bay and Moffat. Newton Stewart is one of the region’s hidden gems, a parkland course in the heart of the Galloway Hills. Lochmaben is another impressive parkland course where the 2nd hole takes you past the site of Robert the Bruce’s castle.

The Little Gems Trail focuses mostly on the region’s 9-hole courses which can offer up an hour or two of real golfing pleasure, ideal for both families and those who are short of time. Solway Links near Dalbeattie prides itself on being a family friendly venue and is also home to Scotland’s first and only ‘Golf Cross’ course, where oval balls and goalposts replace round balls and holes. The courses at New Galloway and Gatehouse of Fleet are good fun and will keep you on your toes.

Find out more about the golf trails in the Dumfries & Galloway Golf guide. The Gateway to Golf Pass offers you the choice between a 6-round pass and a 3-round pass while enjoying access to 26 participating courses over five consecutive days.

When booking your accommodation remember to look out for the Golfers Welcome scheme. They accredit accommodation providers that offer dedicated golf facilities like secure club storage, weather updates and details of local golf suppliers.
