The ‘County’ is one of the most popular holiday golf courses in South West Scotland, an 18-hole, true links course situated on the shores of Luce Bay.
The excellent condition of the course, combined with subtlely sloping greens and changing sea breezes, provide a test of golf for both high and low handicappers.
The area enjoys a temperate climate, so golfing is possible year round, and the club is renowned for its friendly welcome to visitors.
Golfing parties and tee times should be booked in advance.
Coach Parking Available.
Club Hire Available.
During 1893 a group of like-minded men from Glenluce and Stranraer discussed the possibility of finding a suitable piece of land and starting a golf club.
By the first week of March 1894, the 65 acres of land known as Mains of Park (present holes 1-4 & 14-18), had been leased and the services of Mr Charles Hunter professional at Prestwick had been engaged to design 9 holes of ‘sporting character’.
The Course was officially opened four weeks later, at noon on the 28th March 1894, by Sir Herbet Maxwell Bart. MP.
The original Clubhouse, an old tennis pavilion (see above), was gifted shortly after the opening and was erected at the then 1st Tee – near the present 4th Green.
Subsequent new Clubhouses have been erected and upgraded as necessary to accommodate a growing membership and increasing visiting parties.
The 9 hole course was purchased from the Department of Agricultural for Scotland in 1966 for £2,000.
In 1978 a further 45 acres of land was purchased from the DOAS (present holes 5-13 inc.) thus extending the course to 18 holes.
Mr W. Gordon Cunningham designed the ‘new’ nine holes and officially opened the course on 30th May 1987.
