In Their Words ...........
Shiskine Golf and Tennis Club was founded in 1896 and is located in the village of Blackwaterfoot, on the beautiful west coast of the Isle of Arran. Stunning scenery, a warm welcome and a fabulous 12 hole links course that will take your breath away. These are the ingredients that make Shiskine one of the finest Clubs in this part of Scotland.
Arran is the furthest south of all Scotland’s major islands and it is well known for being ‘Scotland in Miniature’. This world famous true links course is unusual in that it is 12 spellbinding holes - the perfect distance, taking only two hours to complete and is quite a challenge to even the best of golfers. The coastal setting and fabulous condition makes it ideal for summer and winter golf. Each of the twelve holes has its own particular charm but you must also be prepared to be accosted by the abundance of wild flowers and birds that will attempt to distract you.
Kintyre, as in ‘Mull of Kintyre’, written by Sir Paul MacCartney, is painted before you and on a clear day you can see the Antrim Hills of Northern Ireland. Our sunsets are never to be forgotten!.
Opened in 2010, our brand new Clubhouse, provides highly recommended homemade locally sourced food, is open to all from 11am - 3.30pm every day. We are a friendly club welcoming both members and visitors during the week and at weekends. We look forward to welcoming you for a round soon.
