Shiskine Golf

Shore Road
t: +44 (0) 1770 860226
f: +44 (0) 1770 860205
holes: 12

Nestling below Drumadoon Cliffs at Blackwaterfoot, Shiskine's challenging and picturesque 12-hole layout is truly one of the hidden gems in the world of golf. Founded in 1896, the original nine-hole course was laid out by the famous Willie Fernie of Troon.

The course is crossed by two burns and has many distinguishing characteristics including the longest par five on the island at 509 yards. There are several blind holes at which various signals indicate when the green is clear and it is safe to play. The holes have picturesque names such as 'The Crow's Nest', 'Paradise' and 'Hades' which give an indication of their distinctive features.

Brodick Golf Club
Isle of Arran
t: +44 (0) 1770 302 349
f: +44 (0) 1770 302 349
holes: 18

Located on the north side of the isle of Arran, Brodick Golf Club is the first golf course you will come to when you step off the ferry.

There are, incidentally, seven golf courses on the island. Brodick is a very flat parkland/seaside course and adjoins a beach. It was established in 1897 proving that golf has been played on the island for a very long time.

At over 4, 000-yards it is extremely short and features mostly par threes, so those who are good shot makers will fare best.

Corrie Golf Club

Isle of Arran
t: +44 (0) 1770 810606
holes: 9

Established in 1892, this course features quite stunning views across the Firth of Clyde and onto Argyle from a number of vantage points and is often the talking pint of many visiting golfers to an island known as 'Scotland in Miniature'. The course is quite a challenge, especially if the wind is its usual self - howling.

Although quite small, you will have to have a certain amount of control over your ball if you are to put together a decent looking card. Notable holes include the fourth, where there's a sign by the green warning of snakes! On a clear day, this is easily one of the most beautiful golf courses in Scotland and well worth the short trip form the mainland.

Lamlash Golf Club

Isle of Arran
t: +44 (0) 1770 600296
holes: 18

The Isle of Arran offers a wonderful chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and just relax, taking in the refreshing Scottish air and, of course, enjoy a few rounds of golf.

Lamlash is the island's oldest golf club and is a wonderfully scenic golf course. It can cater for the most discerning touring golf enthusiast and the clubhouse overlooks the magnificent 18th green - one of the finest finishing holes on the island, set against the magnificent backdrop of the Arran landscape.

Lochranza Golf Club

Isle of Arran
Tel: +44 (0)1770 830273
Fax: +44 (0)1770 830600
holes: 9

Lochranza is a golf course for people who understand the deeper elements of playing golf in beautiful locations. Many find it demanding and challenging, some even tricky, while most enjoy its many natural features.

Those who have the necessary self-control can manage their round and achieve a rewarding score, while those who lose the place can easily hit the 100 mark.

Some quite low handicappers have failed miserably when others have shown that practised skills and good course management will do the business.

Machrie Bay Golf Club

Machrie Bay
Isle of Arran
Tel: +44 (0)1770 840329
Fax: +44 (0)1770 840266
holes: 9

Machrie Bay is a small but quite interesting nine-hole situated 12 miles from Brodick in the village of Machrie on the south side of Isle of Arran. It is ideal for getting rid of your aches and pains after the long drive up.

The first is great wee hole with the beach on one side and the road on the other. But you will need to be quite straight off the tee if you are to make par.

The second is another good hole, where a nice little chip over a mound to a hidden green will get you on a roll. Each hole is full of character, a true facet of a Scottish island golf course.

Whiting Bay Golf Club

Whiting Bay
Isle of Arran
Tel: +44 (0)1770 700487
holes: 18

Whiting Bay is situated on the beautiful island or Arran, known as 'Mini Scotland'. Arran is home to no less than seven golf courses and this particular tract is one of the most popular.

Regular ferries serve the island and the journey from the mainland takes just 55 minutes. Whiting Bay is just twenty minutes' drive from the ferry and is situated on a hillside with superb panoramic views across to Holy Isle and the mainland coast. Visitors are made to feel very welcome and can enjoy inexpensive golf on what is a scenically beautiful course.
