Here in Galloway we have a good number of outstanding golf courses right on the doorstep. Courses range from loch-side to sea-side to cliff-top &sea-side combined! Set in our beautiful countryside in and around the Rhins of Galloway, many of the courses are within easy reach by car, some by local bus service.

The Harbour Guest House is well situated to provide you with a welcoming place to stay Stranraer during your golfing break.

Our very own Stranraer Golf Course is situated alongside the shoreline of Loch Ryan. The stunning18-Hole course was designed by the famous Open Champion James Braid. The course is an SSS 70, 6308 Yards course. This course can be reached from the Harbour Guest House easily by car or local bus service, or we can arrange transport for you and your party if required.

The 18-Hole Lagganmore Golf Course and Hotel is just off the Stranraer - Portpatrick road, about three miles short of Portpatrick. Set amidst rolling countryside with great views across the fairways, this is a popular course to play and is regarded as challenging. In Porpatrick itself can be found two courses! There is the 18-Hole course of Dunskey, set on the cliff tops overloking the village and the Irish Sea. Details are, briefly;18 hole course, a Handicap Certificate is required to play here.
