Silloth on Solway Golf Club
The Clubhouse was designed by Carlisle architect and club member, Walter Gibbings in 1903, and extended in 1908. It retains a period atmosphere reflecting the true character of both Silloth and the course.The Lounge has recently been extensively modernised and remodelled, with the roof-space opened up as originally intended making the whole Lounge much airier and fresher.
It looks out from an elevated position offering good Nineteenth Hole views of those trying to steer their drives up the first fairway, and then later, negotiating the silky subtleties of the eighteenth green.Displayed within the Lounge are photographs of notable local golfers and personalities. None are greater than Cecil Leitch, whose remarkable intimidating portrait dominates the room and reminds members and visitors alike, why she was such a great match player.
The round complete, players can relax in comfort with a long or short drink at attractive prices in the Dining Room, where, if you are lucky, the local speciality – Solway Shrimps, may be on the menu. Or, for a complete change, a quiet game of snooker in the popular Snooker Room.
