Welcome to Shiskine Golf & Tennis Club

Shiskine Golf & 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.



RET now in place and it is only £30 return for a car on the Ardrossan to Brodick ferry  -  hope to see you soon!



"This is seaside golf in its rawest, prettiest and most natural form."


Ranked 80th  in Britain's Best 100 Courses under £80   -   National Club Golfer  -  2017


"Shiskine is golfing ground of such purity, owing only the barest influence to the hand of man, that to play here is to enjoy a unique sporting is fun golf and immensely enjoyable."



" "Paradise" : well, yes. I stood on the 10th tee at the top of the course, with a 360-degree panorama across Arran, the Kilbrannan Sound, the Kintyre peninsula where a three quarter moon had silently risen like a blood grapefruit. The breeze had dropped to a whisper; sea and birds were hushed in the gloaming, that luminous summer dusk of the North."   -   an extract from Preferred Lies by Andrew Greig


"What a time we were having on this quirky little course next to the sparkling sea. The Crow's Nest had provided a great deal of the quirkiness, the Shelf had been exhilarating while Shore Hole was just a classic golf hole."   -   an extract from Golf on the Rocks by Gary Sutherland 








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.



Nationalities from all over the globe  come to see for themselves what they have heard about this breathtaking Golf Club, which nestles at the foot of Drumadoon  and overlooks the Kilbrannan Sound towards Kintyre. Without fail they thoroughly enjoy the experience, confirmed by the number of write-ups, mentions and photos published.


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!


The Club is owned by almost 700 members, many from far afield, and with many families boasting generations of membership.  We are hugely proud of our Golf Club which is cherished by each successive Committee, comprising of  a combination of local and visitor members.  It has always been the aim of the Club to protect the unique membership and overall charm  of the Club, while striving to keep it looking and playing superbly.


Opened in 2010, our brand new Clubhouse, provides highly recommended homemade locally sourced food. Now run by Alan it is open to all from 10am - 5.00pm every day.


We can also offer 2 all-weather tennis courts, bowling, putting, as well as a first class pro shop.  Buggies, for those who need them,  trolleys and golf clubs are available for hire.


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.
