We have many excellent golf courses in Galloway and South Ayrshire. In the Rhins of Galloway we have two of the Top 100 Courses of Scotland – Portpatrick, Dunskey and Creachmore, Stranraer.

Visitors staying at Hotels and Guest Houses in villages such as Portpatrick often qualify for reduced rates on these and other courses – please enquire about this with your accommodation provider.

Portpatrick Dunskey Golf Course has a clifftop setting and offers spectacular views across the Irish Sea while Creachmore in Stranraer is on the shores of Loch Ryan. Sandeel. the 13th at Portpatrick Dunskey is reckoned to be one of the most visually stunning in Scottish Golf.
