Portpatrick (Dunskey) Golf Club
Dunskey - 5908 yards - 18 hole
Dinvin (par 3) - 1504 yards - 9 hole
Situated in S.W. Scotland overlooking the North Channel to Ireland, the area enjoys a temperate climate due to the Gulf Stream and Golf is playable all year round.
Adjacent to the clubhouse, the par 3, 9-hole Dinvin course is certainly not to be sniffed at. A tricky layout which has several blind holes, it is bound to improve your short game.
It was in 1902 that the late Mr. C L Orr Ewing MP, realised the possibilities open to Portpatrick and immediately set about the provision of a Golf course. In the autumn of that year he surveyed the ground with the late Mr. Charles Hunter of Prestwick. The Club - Dunskey Golf Club - was founded the following year. Originally extending to 100 acres the area known as Kennel Park and a large proportion of Mill Field were added. In 1912 the course was realigned to form, what was then, a ladies course a nine hole par 3s. Now called the Dinvin course it provides a fair test for the golfer to improve the short game and also a course for the holiday golfer.
Recent changes have seen the name change to Portpatrick (Dunskey) Golf Club and the clubhouse extended on two occasions.
The course was extended and sand bunkers introduced some 10 years ago. The quality of the course and the friendly atmosphere that abounds sees the return of well-kent faces each year to test their skills, whichever way the wind blows.
