The challenging holes which are set among whins and rough has earned Powfoot the tag of 'one of golf's best kept secrets'.

Welcome to Powfoot Golf Club.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who’ve made the opening week at Powfoot such a success. However, there are a couple of points that I need to address-

  1. At present only 2 players per group, family members are permitted to walk with a group provided all Social Distancing guidelines are followed.
  2. Hand sanitiser is for everyone to use at the course please do not use it to fill your own containers.
  3. BRS booking, if you can’t make your tee time please cancel the booking to allow others the chance to play.
  4. Litter, as there are no on course bins please take all your rubbish home.
  5. Members only at this time no visitors or guests.
  6. You must reserve a tee time, you cannot just turn up to play. This is due to track and trace should anyone show signs of Covid 19.

Stay Safe

Club Captain
