Review for Powfoot

Reviewer Score:


This is a very friendly, unstuffy club and although, not in the same league as other clubs in the area such as Southerness and Silloth, this James Braid designed course is more than a good golfing test. You have to get your golfing thinking cap on early and make sure that you are properly warmed up as out of bounds on the first 2 holes await errant driving. On the day that I played conditions were fairly benign however, I can imagine the ubiquitous yellow gorse gobbling up loads of Pro V 1’s (in my case lake balls from JJB’S). Locals think that the 11th hole Sahara, as the signature hole. I would go along with that as it was my favourite on the course. The par 3’s, as in many of Braids’ courses, are superb with strategic bunkering providing a good defence. So, if you are in the area Powfoot, with it’s magnificent views and gorse aplenty, shoud not be missed MPPJ
