Lake District Golf Breaks & Lake District Golfing Holidays
Linthwaite is only one mile down the road from Windermere Golf Club, (which I do take advantage of!) Windermere is highly recommended and if the golf is bad the views compensate, and it's well worth non-players accompanying the players. Nice and friendly clubhouse.
Ulverston (southwest) is rated the best (30 minutes away), and Silloth in N.W. Cumbria is of championship course standard. Locally there is also Kendal (8 miles east - exposed and hilly), Keswick in the north (only 9 holes and very seasonal) and two courses at Grange-over-Sands. Clubs can be hired at most of these courses. Booking essential. For non-handicappers, pay at Beckside on the Crook Road (3 miles) or Carrus Green, Burneside Road, Kendal.
Mike Bevans, owner of Linthwaite, plays at Kirkby Lonsdale Golf Club, a magnificent course, long, with great views. If you'd like a game, just ask!
Linthwaite Country House Hotel overlooks Lake Windermere and is ideally situated whether it be for a golfing holiday or short break and offers perfect relaxing surroundings for any non-golfers.
