It is 10 years since the new clubhouse at Shiskine Golf and Tennis Club was built. In commemoration a special 2020 calendar has been produced to mark the decade since it opened.
Titled the Clubhouse Decade Edition the images used in the calendar are of the course in various seasons and includes a huge group photo of members, past captains and those that were involved in the clubhouse project.
Other images include stunning sunsets, winter scenes and aerial perspectives which show the course, and its spectacular location, looking at its very best.
Shiskine Golf and Tennis Club was founded in 1896 and originally had just nine holes. Later it expanded to a full 18 hole course but during the war six holes were lost due to agricultural needs so the course has remained at 12 holes ever since.
The course takes just two hours to play and offers, as the calender images attest, stunning coastal views in all directions including the impressive columnar basalt cliffs at Drumadoon Point.
The calendars are available at http://shiskinegolf.co.uk/ and every image dating back to 2012 is available for free viewing and downloading from the site.
