Where2Golf says: 

Shiskine Golf & Tennis Club: Known to many as the best 12-hole golf course in the UK, Shiskine's ocean-side setting, nestling below the Drumadoon Cliffs, ensures it is right up there with the scenic best. It might also be a contender for having the highest ratio of blind shots to make, both from the tees and for approach shots to the greens - various signalling devices are employed to let you know when its safe to pay. The undulating terrain has all the hallmarks of an excellent links style golf course, with fabulous sea views over Kilbrannan Bay and across to the Mull of Kintyre. The greens are well-paced and a couple of burns meander snake-like across the layout.

Did you know?

Alexander Boyd, a banker based in Glasgow, is credited as the founder of the club. In June 1896 the club was opened by the then Lord Advocate, Mr Graham Murray. The course architect was Willie Fernie of Troon, who designed the original 9-hole course. Currently the 5th and 9th holes are the only survivors of the original concept.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.

In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
