Set in breathtaking scenery in Dumfriesshire, South West Scotland, Powfoot Golf Club and course presents a mixture of both links and parkland golf to the highest standard.
The Club was originally constituted in 1903 and opened on 27th June of that year. It was orginally run by Hoddom and Kinmount Estate until November 1948, since when it was been run by the members. The course was originally nine holes and an opening match of 36 holes was played between two prominent professionals of the day, Sandy Herd of Huddersfield and Willie Fernie of Troon.
In 1911, the course was extended to 18 holes, however during the First and Second World Wars, 5 holes were cultivated reducing the course to 13 holes. World War Two left a marked imprint on the course at the 9th hole where a sizeable depression caused by a German bomb remains as an “unnatural hazard”.
In November of 1923, the legendary professional and course designer, James Braid, visited the club to make some improvements to the course. He strengthened 2 or 3 holes weak holes by creating new tees to lengthen them and adding new bunkers.
In 1949, the course was restored to 18 holes. The last five holes which had been ploughed up were reseeded and several very enthusiastic members spent many days clearing the stones from the newly reseeded area.
The course has remained relatively unchanged since.
