Brighouse Bay Golf Club sits above the scenic Solway coastline, offering stunning views that overlook the Irish Sea and the rolling Galloway countryside. This 18-hole course features a rugged, coastal terrain with plenty of natural water hazards that come into play throughout the golf course. Due to the rocky seaside location, there are natural undulations and contours that cause a few tricky uneven lies. Four sets of tees ensure that the course can accommodate all skill levels and abilities. In addition to the course, Brighouse Bay Golf Club offers a fully equipped driving range and an extensive short game area. The golf course is conveniently open year-round.

Should be removed from GolfNow

V poor experience. It’s a shame that a course in such a stunning setting should be in such poor condition. We played 5 holes and walked off. There were no staff, there is no clubhouse just a ramshackle wooden shed that was locked. We wanted a buggie - no one available to hire them from. We had not brought trolleys so attempted to use one of the rusted relics from the pile. The fairways were like fields and the bunkers were full of rabbit holes and stones and not much sand. Greens were awful. There are plenty of other nice courses in the area - don’t be tempted here by the thought of playing great golf to match the stunning views. Take a walk round it instead!!

Incredible Layout

The course layout and views are fantastic.Unfortunately the condition of the course was poor.Fairways and rough were uncut and the greens were poor.
At £30 we though the course to be overpriced and none of the amenities were open.

Unfortunate Experience

Club shop closed
Driving range closed
Fairways not cut
Bunkers not maintained, concrete !!
No buggy hire available
Nobody to assist and talk to.

Poor experience on what used to be a lovely course.

Should not be taking full green fees when not maintaining the course to a suitable standard.

Unbelievable scenery makes up for course condition

Would highly recommend playing here for the views alone. The course condition is OK and does not take away from the experience of playing in such a beautiful area. Price was reasonable too.

Beautiful Scenery

Great experience playing at this course. Absolutely stunning scenery on the coast which more than makes up for the condition of the greens. Good price too.

Stunning location shame it is so poorly maintained

Stunning location with lovely coastal views, a good variety of holes but just such a shame it is so poorly maintained. The greens and bunkers are very poor, with weeds, diseased and the 14th even had mushrooms on it!!
Weekends are pretty slow and we waited a lot on the tees, particularly the front 9 as many players just play 9 holes.
We can't complain really though as it only cost us £10 a round and that was worth it for the stunning views.

Very friendly and helpful pro who gave tips on how to play the course before going out. The course is enjoyable to play and the views are breathtaking. The greens were not the best but ok. Well worth a visit.
