New Galloway Course was designed in 1902 by George Ballie who was associated with the establishment of The Royal County down and many other fine courses. Since then it has been kept up to date with new tees constructed in recent years. The clubhouse was built in the same year the course opened and although it has recently been completely refurbished, elements of the original structure have been retained to preserve the traditional atmosphere. Facilities are limited with bar service usually available from 12 - 14:00 hrs. The course is normally open to visitors at all times, however competitions have priority.

From Castle Douglas take the roads to New Galloway and the course is situated on the western edge of the village.

Course Details

Course Name: New Galloway Holes: 9 Yardage: 2270 SSS: 67
The course climbs steeply form a woodland setting at the clubhouse to a more open Moorland terrain, and once the initial climb is over the going is easy with a variety of natural hazards providing interest and testing the golfer to the full. The view for the top over the Ruinns of Kells and south to the Solway Coast and English Lake District are unrivalled. The standard scratch score of 67 from the medal tees is difficult to achieve and the course record still stands at 65.

    A nice but challenging little course with potential for disaster everywhere. If you finish your round with the same ball you've done well. There are no bunkers or water hazards but several blind holes and huge mounds of gorse and rocks make it tricky. Not the cheapest 9 holer around but worth it for the views and condition of the course. Not for the faint hearted.
