Our Story

Colvend is widely regarded as one of ‘Scotland’s friendliest clubs’. It is a golf course you’ll want to play again and again and again.
This pleasantly testing parkland course provides enjoyable variety and a degree of quirkiness that makes it one of Dumfries and Galloway’s most popular golfing experiences.
The original 9-hole course, dating from 1905, was designed by Willie Fernie, and later re-designed by architect Dave Thomas. It was subsequently extended to 18 holes in 1997. It is perfectly suited to its location, situated on the beautiful Solway coastline, a stone’s throw from Championship Southerness in an area known as the Scottish Riviera.
With spectacular cliff top views across to the Cumbrian Fells and Isle of Man, ancient native trees lining the course, wildlife visitors that include otters, deer and red squirrels and attractive water hazards; Colvend’s superb repeat playability and excellent facilities make it a must visit.

Course Highlight

The 18th has featured as one of the most picturesque finishing holes in Scotland. A par 4 slight dog leg, this is a hole that demands accuracy on the fairway, with a green protected by a burn to the front and side, a pond at the rear and the oak trees that give the hole its name. The tricky par 3 8th is another highlight, needing a bold tee shot to clear the concealed burn.

Perfect Partners

Kirkcudbright Golf Club and Dumfries and County Golf Club provide golf courses both offer great golf, excellent hospitality and plenty of on-course golfing adventures.
