In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“This rugged links on the western side of Arran is a cult classic, and not just because it only has 12 holes. Five of the holes require blind approach shots with an unusual amount of quirk to them, and there is a succession of improvised signaling devices to let golfers know when it’s all clear to hit away. Nevertheless, the setting is spectacular playing along a narrow strip of links in the shadow of a rocky bluff, which you climb halfway up to play the short 3rd. It’s a hard course to rate because it’s certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are looking for an extreme example of how different golf can be, Shiskine is not to be missed.“
Shiskine Golf Club received a score of 4 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
