Good course, great views. A little damp in areas.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Never Again !!!
On arriving it was unclear where the first tee was and there was nobody to ask/everywhere was locked up. The course was in very poor shape and extremely boggy, We lost multiple golf balls from straight drives which apparently plugged on "The Fairway" which was long and unkempt in many places. The course layout itself was good although it is the first golf course I have ever played without a single bunker and therefore the course/greens lacked any real character. Would definitely not recommend or play again !!!
Stunning Location in the Lake District
We played this course last year and again did not disappoint , a great challenge with stunning views on a beautiful sunny day in September . The food and drink was amazing and the lay out in the clubhouse made us feel safe and welcoming in these strange times.
Great setting, friendly people who were happy to call me through (apart from the elderly lady who had taken literally 30 hits to reach a par 3). Greens were poor, many of them bumpy and mossy, though I am told they have had rain for 3 weeks (this is the lake District, mind you).
Some interesting holes, with punishing rough, so s good test off the tees. I would come back
Very sodden underfoot, poor drainage. No bounce on shots, fairways were poor, rough on the edge of the fairways was harsh and the greens were very slow and bobbly.
Heavy underfoot with lots of standing water. Greens small. No staff present when we began our round - no signage to first tee. To be fair maps on tee boxes were helpful
Booked on a Hot deal and well was it worth it!
The course was challenging but in lovely condition despite being boggy in places but the location is responsible for that . sandwiched between mountain ranges offers wonderful views. however , the thing which impressed me the most was a pictorial noticeboard at each hole outlining what lay ahead Which I found invaluable as it was the first time playing the course
Poor conditions, stunning scenery
Sad to say but this course has declined from when I last played, lots of tress cut and gone which form the holes, drainage seems worse than ever, lots of plugged balls on the fairway, and the greens are simply put, very poor, appear to not have had any care during lock down, patches dying off and no true roll on any. Really disappointing round. Shame as this course in some of the most beautiful surrounding scenery you could wish for.
A friend has warned us it wasn’t a good winter course but even in July after one night of rain there was standing water everywhere which made shots out of the rough impossible, you were digging your ball out of the fairway and putting was like jet skiing.
Real shame the drainage is so bad as the layout and views are pretty good.
Great Location, Poor Condition
Always love playing golf in the Lake District and the views here are absolutely stunning. On arriving, however, it was unclear where the first tee was and there was nobody to ask/everywhere was locked up. The course was in pretty bad shape with parts of the fairway not cut and patchy; we lost multiple golf balls from straight drives... But the layout itself was enjoyable and, for a short course, it provided a good challenge.
Good course however suffering from saturated fairways
First time playing there it’s a great course but has suffered from heavy rain and fairways are overgrown and wet
Only volunteer green keepers I believe and pro shop no longer there
I worry for it’s future at one point considered asking for refund
Played this course several times and the views of the lake district are fantastic!!! course layout is currently adapting to a lot of tree felling but still a lovely couse to test your skills
Keswick golf club
Good test of golf in beautiful surroundings.
The recent drought has had its effect on several greens which were quite poor.
Clubhouse was great.
Stunning location - lovey round of golf
Really enjoyed the course. Pretty long and challenging but fun and the views are fabulous.
Testing conditions due to recent rain. Some holes very difficult for high handicap golfers due to long carries off tee. But pleasant overall and stunning scenery.
Few great holes and a decent test in a nice setting
Tried this course as it's close to the inlaws. Gorgeous setting and some great views but the course layout could be so much better with s bit more thought into shaping the fairways and making it interesting. Fairways were poor but greens were good. No bunkers means you stay out of most of the trouble, but some tight out of bounds around some of the greens mean you have to be careful with the approach shots.
Overall there are better courses nearby to play (Cockermouth for example) but it's worth a visit. I got a deal and I don't think I would pay full price to play her again.
The clubhouse is nice and very traditional but down a single track road with speed bumps. The pro was very pleasant and had left free bottles of water at the first tee which I thought was a nice touch.
Great views great layout great value
Really good value around golf course . Clubhouse staff very friendly and offered good chat about his knowledge of rugby union and agreed England were the best.
