Colvend Golf Club was founded in 1905. The principal architect was Willie Fernie. The course was re-designed in 1985 by architect Dave Thomas, and was extended to 18 holes in May 1997 when the principal architect was John Souter of GTI. The renowned golfer and TV commentator Peter Alliss also had a hand in its design.
Nothing stands still, and our Centenary Project (2005) was to improve the course with adjustments to the 12th hole and the introduction of a new 15th and 16th. These were designed in-house and the new layout opened for play in 2007.
Our testing eighteen hole parkland layout is situated on the gorgeous Solway Coast, conveniently located between Dumfries and Dalbeattie, and amongst the holiday destinations of Southerness, Kippford, Rockcliffe and Sandyhills with their abundant range of accommodation. The course provides views over the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian Fells and, on a clear day, offers a glimpse of the Isle of Man.
Some of the holes offer challenging water features, and tree lined fairways abound. We are particularly proud of our large Oaks and other hardwood trees, which are significant features around the course.
