Golfing in the Lake District far from “under par”!

Golf isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when the Lake District is mentioned, the lakes and fells are most definitely what people think of.
Cumbria and the Lake District does however have more than its fair share of golf courses and typical of the environment and landscape in general, the golf courses are in truly stunning locations. Dotted around this county and national park are courses to suit everyone from rolling parkland courses such as Carus Green in Kendal and Windermere Golf Club, links courses like Seascale and Silloth where open qualifiers are held to fell courses such as Kendal. Each course is challenging but above all, hugely scenic, bursting with views and all of an extremely high standard.

Carus Green in Kendal has seen extensive development over the last 5 years both on and off course. Improved greens and fairways along with an award winning new club house with function suites, 16 bay range and fully stocked pro shop, restaurant and bar has put this Kendal par 71 parkland course beside the River Kent firmly on the “to play” list for golfers throughout the UK.

From a central base, golfers can experience the wide variety of courses on offer in the region. Windermere is ideal being easy to access from the motorway and having the Windermere course as well as being only 8 miles from the Kendal courses, Carus Green and Kendal.

After a full round of golf, have the knowledge you’ll be going back to the luxurious surroundings of Applegarth Villa. Jump into the hot tub and refresh before heading for a pre dinner drink in the bar and delicious evening meal.
