Play Golf in the Galloway Hills
Putt on Superb Greens
R&A Rules 2019
New Galloway Golf Club is a delightful 9 hole golf course located in the South of Scotland. We welcome visitors to experience playing in a magical place. It is a gem among rural courses in Scotland and noted for its superb natural greens and views. New Galloway Golf Club members are proud of their golf course and feel it is probably the best 9 hole golf course in Scotland. The course climbs from a traditional clubhouse in a woodland setting up the first two holes to open moor land where golfers may enjoy views of Loch Ken and the surrounding Galloway Hills. It is kept in superb condition and it is noted for its natural greens and fairways. The playing experience is heightened by quality of the turf benefiting from an abundance of bents and fescue type grasses.
