The top courses in Cumbria

With over 30 golf courses in Cumbria, there is plenty to choose from whether you are looking for parkland golf courses near Carlisle such as Brampton or Eden, or links golf courses such as St. Bees. One of the best championship links golf courses in Cumbria, and also England, is Silloth on Solway. A regular host to Open Qualifying, the golf course was designed by James Braid amongst others. Cumbria shares its borders with Scotland, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Durham, and Northumberland, and with the Lake District contained within the county it is little surprise that there are many beautiful parkland golf courses in Cumbria. The golf clubs at Windermere, Kendal, and Casterton are all good examples, but wherever you choose to play you can be sure of some outstanding views across the Lake District region whilst enjoying the golf courses in Cumbria.

Silloth on Solway Golf Club

Situated on the linksland west of the docks at Silloth, Wigton, Cumbria, the golf course at Silloth on Solway has evolved significantly over time. David Grant laid out the original course, with later contributions from Dr Alister MacKenzie and Willie Park Junior. A number of blind holes are still in play, and there is a source of uncertainty, surprise and occasional delight for golfers playing the famous links. Iconic holes include: the ninth, a par 3 played from an elevated tee; the par 5 thirteenth; and the 18th that requires an accurate drive to the fairway, and a long approach. The fairways play over the springiest of Cumbrian turf, and their undulating features meander through the dunes offering a true test of links golf.
