|Course Name: Southerness Holes: 18 Yardage: 6566 SSS: 73|
|Links course with Fairways bounded by extensive areas of gorse and heather. Wind is generally a factor and the subtle changes in direction of the holes designed by Mackenzie Ross provides a stiff test. There are no large hills or steep slopes on the course which make it easy walking. Eight of the par 4 holes are in excess of 400 yards.
