Golf Courses in North Lancashire and Cumbria

Silverdale Golf Club is set in the heart of the Arnside and Silverdale AONB, adjacent to the Leighton Moss RSPB reserve. The stunning location has fabulous views over the surrounding countryside, across Morecambe Bay and towards the Cumbrian Howgill Fells. It is an easy and comfortable drive away from Hawthorns Park. If you’re not a member yet, you can participate in one of their open competitions to see if it’s the right fit for you!

Granges-Over-Sands Golf Club

Besides being a popular destination, the Grange-Over-Sands Golf Club is known for its picturesque location and challenging courses, making it a paradise for golf enthusiasts. Full members can take advantage of the Reciprocal Golf arrangement to enjoy a free round of golf at three other clubs. The club is open year-round, so any time you visit your holiday caravan at Hawthorns, you can always take a visit to this golf course.

Lancaster Golf Club

Lancaster Golf Club will impress even the most discerning visitor. The course, measuring 6512 yards with a par of 71, and designed by James Braid in 1932 (5 times open champion and Britain’s greatest course architect), provides a challenge to every golfer, especially the classic dogleg ninth, the demanding seventeenth known as ‘Braids Best’, and the daunting elevated tee to the final green. It’s no wonder why Lancaster Golf Club is a favourite among locals and visitors alike.

Ashton Golf Centre

Ashton Golf Centre is one of Lancaster’s friendliest golf courses and is open to the public. The course offers an informal and relaxed Pay and Play golf course for players of all abilities, creating a fabulous golfing experience for everyone. The greens are well drained, so even in the wettest summers they manage to keep the course open and playable. The centre also offers a driving range, which is perfect for honing your skills or warming up before a round.

Lansin Golf Course

Lansil Golf Course was bought by major local employer Lancaster Silk shortly after the Second World War. The course is a par 69 test of golf measuring 5,540 yards off the men’s white competition tees (SSS 67). The ladies’ course, also par 70, measures 4,872 yards (SSS 68).

What the course lacks in length it makes up for in the need for accuracy, both off the tee and in your approach shots. The threat of out-of-bounds comes into play on seven of the nine holes and many greens are raised with ground falling away sharply on one, two or even three sides.

Other Great Golf Courses in North Lancashire and Cumbria

The Morecambe Golf Club, located in the coastal town of Morecambe, is known for its challenging course and has become a favourite amongst golfers. If you’re up for another challenge, head over to Grange Fell, a golf club that boasts the best views in South Lakeland. You’re sure to have a great time mastering this course while enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery.

Kirkby Lonsdale is another great location for golf enthusiasts, with two fantastic courses to choose from. The 9-hole Casterton Golf Club, which also offers Footgolf, is a great place to start. And if you’re looking for a more challenging course, the 72-par Kirkby Lonsdale Golf Club is sure to impress. Both courses make the most of the Lune Valley’s stunning scenery, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take in the views while playing.

For those who prefer coastal views, Heysham Golf Club is a beautiful parkland course that is easy to reach via the M6. With its fantastic coastal views, you won’t be disappointed with this course.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your clubs and head out for a round of golf at one of these fantastic courses!
