Wigtownshire County Golf Course near Glenluce, on the shores of Luce Bay, Dumfries & Galloway

 

The Golf Course

The Course lies on the shores of the scenic Luce Bay. On a clear day, looking South over Luce Bay, the Isle of Man can be seen. The course is slightly over 6000 yards and is a test for both high and low handicap players, due to the differing directions of the sea breezes.

The Course is also playable, on normal greens, throughout the winter. On average, frost greens may be used 8 or 9 times each year, with snow being a rare occurrence.

There is also a practice area of over 4 acres adjacent to the Clubhouse.
