Portpatrick Dunskey Course
The Portpatrick Dunskey Golf Club is playable almost all year round – with its close proximity to the sea and the Gulf Stream – the south west is positively tropical in comparison to other parts of Scotland. The Club boasts that while many other courses were unplayable for long periods of time during the harsh winter of 2010/2011, Dunskey only lost five days. The Club has two courses – the 18 hole Dunskey and the 9 hole Dinvin. At 150 feet above sea level, both courses have magnificent views from the coast over the sea to Ireland, Kintyre, the Isle of Man and even Cumbria.
