Your golfing map… how many can you tick off?

Yes you have to get to Carlisle and turn left and it’s probably a place you are passing but once into town there is a dock and a golf course so not hard to miss.
This is how you welcome a visitor – from the Pro-shop to the members everyone was super friendly - thank you.
Long game, short game, putting greens they have it all. Take your own practice balls though. All a short walk from the club house, you could spend all day just practising here.
Overlooking the 1st tee and 18th green this is what I describe as a true golf course clubhouse, very relaxed with some wonderful daily specials on the menu, which on the day we ate was superb. Members nice and chatty as were the staff. Keep up the great work.
Played on a nice day still windy but the locals said this was only a breeze! This is a true test of golf and you will need every shot in the bag and then some, links golf at its best. Heather and dunes everywhere you need to keep the ball straight and the fairways were fabulous to play off no excuse of a bad lie. You will be tested with ball above, below and on slopes as not many level lies.
Not at all, traditional but more than welcoming – I think the staff and members know any visitor has made an effort so they embrace them (not literally) but are genuinely happy to have them at the course
Cannot wait and next time going to make a special visit not a passing one.
If you picked this course up and moved it 100 miles south, firstly you would never get on the course it would be that busy and secondly the great value green fees would increase (presently £40 a day for autumn 2017 and spring 2018). The course is that good the R&A would have petitions to get this course on the Open Rota. Any pro getting ready for The Open should come and practice here, it’s that good. Only 6641 from the back tees %800 from the ladies) but it feels and plays longer especially when that breeze gets up!
