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. Too often visitors are made to feel a little unwelcome in certain regions in the United Kingdom, but in Cumbria, visitors are regarded as long lost friends. Three of the largest cities in Cumbria are Carlisle, Penrith and Kendal and all within driving distance to the golf courses around the county.

It is situated amongst mature trees in gently undulating parkland and is one of the most attractive courses in northern England.
Opened in 1992, Eden has matured into an extremely attractive golf course receiving great praise from visiting golfers for it's immaculate condition, beautiful environment and above all it's ability to test golfers without being unfair.
