Many visitors who have played Silloth tell us it is comparable to the Open Championship venues. Undulating fairways and firm fast greens make for a high quality golf experience
Course Design – The layout of the course is superb. The course utilises many of the natural elements of the land to provide a great layout and a challenge to all who play. Davy Grant was the original course architect and Willie Park Jnr and Dr Alister MacKenzie had a hand in the courses development over the years.
Value for Money – To have a course of this quality and only charge £55 per day midweek means the value for money is as good as it gets. You can play a top quality course and not have to pay a premium price.
All day golf – The midweek green fees are charged per day so you can play all day giving you more time to enjoy and appreciate the subtlety of the links. If you struggle to manage 36 holes we have buggies available to hire so you can ride in comfort whilst enjoying your golf.
