Dunskey Course at Portpatrick Golf Club
Portpatrick Dunskey Golf Club offers an undulating links-type layout, which is a challenge to all levels of golfers, especially when the fierce wind blows from across the Irish Sea. It is a mixture of rolling moorland and seaside heath.
The 11th hole, 138 yards from the forward tee, can be especially challenging, depending on wind direction, requiring anything from a 9-iron to a driver.
The 285-yard 13th hole, justly remembered as the signature hole, is known for its breathtaking view across the sea to Ireland. From the tee, which overlooks the North Channel, one can see the Irish coast, Mull of Kintyre and, to the south, the Isle of Man. It is all-downhill, and the backdrop is Sandeel Bay and the rocky coastline.
One of Portpatrick Dunskey Golf Club's well-kept secrets is the excellent nine-hole, Par-3 Dinvin Course, which takes about an hour to play. It is ideal for the golfer looking for a quick round or the beginner who isn't quite ready for 18 holes.
The Club opened in 1903. The par-3 course was added in 1912.

Very enjoyable indeed
Very quiet when we played so whizzed around. The greens were in lovely condition. A tricky course with lots of side slopes and blind shots which made it tougher for the first time you played. Thoroughly enjoyed it despite playing rubbish. Had a rich harvest of lost balls in the rough too!! Chris the pro was a lovely bloke, incredibly helpful and friendly.
Great wee course
A warm welcome awaits you at Dunskey. Wide fairways, few blind tee shots off the tee but markers well placed. Greens are beautiful and run true. Great views, especially on back 9 which is quite undulating. Long par 5 third hole is a tough test. A great golf course, thoroughly recommend giving it a go.
Great location for views
Loved playing this course. Beware the rough - it’ will punish a stray ball (but that’s what golf is about anyway!). Views are great and the course is well presented
Not much rain so very hard and fast but greens in great condition. Great views and a challenging layout. Many slopes and hills so you have to plan your shots.
Really great course. Well worth the visit.
Fabulous seaside links golf course with spectacular views & in great condition, a bit of trek from Glasgow but all in all worth the journey making for a great away day ...
was greeted by friendly staff.course was in great condition and views were unreal.there were a few blind holes and on a couple i did great drive over top of marker pole and ball was never found yet.but dont get me wrong i cant wait to return again.a must play course.
Keep it straight
Excellent golf course. Not for the faint hearted though. Rough is a lost ball. Greens run true. Most definitely would play again and again. Very rewarding.
A day in the sun
Very friendly welcome, not over booked and playing PM Sunday was millionaires golf. The course was in good condition throughout and with breathtaking views over the Irish Sea on a very warm sunny day, it was perfect.
What an experience.
It’s been many years since I played here and it did not disappoint. Views over the Irish Sea were stunning. Even the strong winds didn’t spoil the experience.
Course in great condition, staff and members very friendly. Clubhouse homely.
After very heavy rain Friday played Saturday late morning and course was dry! Greens in excellent condition for this time of year. Some members we met very welcoming.
Supper little course.
Lovely little course with a few short par 4s. Greens a little hard to read but very fast.
ENJOYABLE ROUND OF GOLF

4 on back nine with the sea and rocks on the left. Rough I found punishing though it's not long. Pro shop very friendly and were happy to give me a deal on items bought. I will be back
