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.
