Welcome to Silloth On Solway Golf Club, one of the best golf courses in Britain and the best value golf course in Britain.

Since David Grant laid Silloth golf course out in 1892 over the linksland west of the docks it has been a key tourist attraction. Over the years the course has evolved, with contributions from two great classic designers Dr Alister MacKenzie and Willie Park Junior.  A number of blind holes still remain, architecturally-incorrect in the modern era, but a source of uncertainty, surprise and occasional delight to successive generations of members and visitors. Some of the original sandy wastes remain as heroic hazards, but the course is mostly clad in mature dune flora that is ideal for presenting the great challenge of links golf.

Three holes are typical. The elevated tee on the par 3 Ninth looks down on a small island green with a steep fall to the right, protected to the front and side by an array of deep bunkers that demand an accurate shot from anything between a wedge and three iron, depending on the wind.

Silloth’s signature hole is the par 5 Thirteenth, with a drive over gorse to a deceptively wide fairway. A tight second through a narrow gully, into the prevailing wind, must negotiate an angled slope that deflects all but the most accurate of approaches to an elevated green at the top of a ridge.

The final hole requires an accurate drive on to an angled fairway, usually with the help of the prevailing wind, before a long approach in to the final green under the critical gaze of those safely ensconced in the Nineteenth Hole. The player can then enjoy the comforts of the busy and atmospheric clubhouse: a meal made with local produce and above all, a warm Cumbrian welcome.

The fairways are covered in the springiest of Cumbrian turf, inviting crisp iron shots and courageous woods.  The undulating fairways meander through the dunes offering a true test of links golf to those who visit    Much praise has been bestowed on this golf course located in Silloth, Wigton, Cumbria. Writing about his first visit to the course in 1925, the great golf writer Bernard Darwin wrote: “I never more violently fell in love with a course at first sight.”

Silloth represents excellent value for money: in 2013 Today’s Golfer magazine voted it the ‘Best Course in Britain and Ireland under £60’. It also appears in the Planetgolf.com top 100 golf courses in the world.  Silloth on Solway Golf Cumbria played host to the 2002-2007 R & A Regional Open Championship Qualifier, and in 2007 hosted the English Ladies Close Amateur Strokeplay Championship. In 2009 the club also hosted the EGU Mid Amateur Championship for the Logan Trophy. In 2012 the Club staged the English Amateur Championship won by Harry Ellis.

Sample the Silloth experience for yourself: play Britain’s best value golf course.

We would love you to visit Silloth, if you require any further information call 016973 31304 and the Secretary Alan Oliver will be happy to help you in any way possible.

“Our group of 20 golfers made our annual end of season pilgrimage to Silloth last Friday (16th October) and were blessed with possibly the best weather so far this autumn. We had a tremendous day, as always. The course is just such a pleasure to play and in great condition as usual. A day’s golfing at Silloth in perfect weather really does help restore the soul.”
Graham Sanderson
“Please pass on our appreciation and thanks to everyone at the club for making us so welcome and at home. Special thanks to David and Octavia and their staff for looking after our refreshment needs. We all departed for home well satisfied with our day out – the value for money is second to none. We hope to return many more times..”
Peter Jones
“Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed ourselves yesterday.  The course is an absolute gem (the best and most difficult any of us had encountered, which was probably why we finished so late) and it was worth every penny plus the 3 hour journey.  I’m absolutely certain we’ll return, probably with a few more in tow.  Hopefully it’ll be a bit less windy next time.  Once again, many thanks.”
Dave Moss
“I would just like to thank you for the way you looked after us on Tuesday. The welcome we had was excellent and the golf course exceptional. All my party had a great day and cannot wait to come back next year!”
Andy Dunbar
“Just wanted to record my appreciation following our visit on Sunday and Monday.  The course was sublime and a really enjoyable test.  Everyone we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. Have had the luck to play many of the top courses in the country and they really should send their staff to Siloth to learn how it should be done.”
David Parker
“This is just a brief email to say how much we enjoyed our 3 days in Silloth. I know we were lucky with the weather, but this is the 14th year our happy band have been away in May and the general consensus was that it was one of the best. You have a great course, but you also have a great, and certainly one of the most welcoming, clubs. Your staff are a credit to the infrastructure that supports any good organisation and could not have been more helpful.  We hope to be back sometime and will definitely spread the word
