Golf Clubs in Carlisle
Known as a sport of leisure and as a gentleman’s game, golf is one of the most popular, well-received sports worldwide. Played on a large outdoor course covering anywhere between 30 and 200 acres, the object of the sport is to propel a small hard ball into a series of ‘holes’ with as few strokes as possible, using a variety of wood or iron-tipped sticks called golf clubs.
Cumbria isn't exactly filled with golf courses, but what it doesn't have in numbers it most certainly makes up for in quality, variety and value for money. It is refreshing to come across a region where visiting golfers are welcomed with open arms in place.

The course is bordered by 2 rivers on 3 sides, which cause some tricky shots over and around water. The front 9 holes feature open, but undulating fairways, with the tree lined back 9 holes becoming very much narrower and trickier. With something to challenge every level of ability, it is also a good course to test your understanding and knowledge of the game and with magnificent views of the Lakeland Fells and Northern Pennines...
