Wrong time

Arrived on friday afternoon and advised we could tee off immediately unfortunately there had been a charity day for junior funds and the course was dull of four balls I eventually walked off after 14 holes ad I had lost the will to live. The course itself was ok the greens were excellent but a lot of the greens a very close to the next tee box. I will go again but will check on what is happening at golf club first. Overall disappointed with experience and not being able to finish round

Great layout, challenging

Great course layout, condition in January was great. Lots of variety. Only thing I missed was a bit of water for me to play my ball into.

Lovely Penrith

Played 18 on a quiet Saturday morning in a 2 ball. Soon caught up with a couple of 4 balls who let us play through immediately! Excellent. Made pace of play great on a course which was in good condition with many interesting holes. We followed up in the 19th with some excellent food. Will definitely return!

All round excellent experience

I cannot fault Penrith golf course and their staff as both were fantastic & if I lived nearer I would definitely want to become a full member. The course was in first class condition and had beautiful views throughout with a mix of more straightforward and challenging holes.

I was playing with my grandson & had booked & paid for a day that unfortunately was blighted by very heavy intermittent rain showers. The staff offered to allow us to play as planned, but to return the next day for a full round if the rainy conditions proved too much of a problem. That's exactly what we did and the staff's willingness to help us in this way made their customer service excel way beyond other clubs I've visited. Thank you Penrith golf club & staff for giving me & my 8 year old grandson a golfing experience to remember!

A Great Day of Golf

I recently had the opportunity to play Penrith Golf Club. I arrived at 9am for a 9:36 tee time and asked to play with a member as I was a single and not familiar with the course. The Pro Shop paired me up with Suzanne, the Ladies Captain and her husband Dave. While waiting on the putting green several other members also kindly offered to play with me.

The course was in excellent condition, especially considering the scorching temperatures and drought conditions. Fairways were hard and fast, greens were in perfect condition and running true. The layout is challenging yet fair requiring a variety of different shots. Dave mentioned how differently the course plays in the winter when the course plays much longer due to the cold and softer conditions. Dave was also a source of many interesting historical facts about the club and its members. Did you know it used to be a race course!?

The views! Well they were incredible. Bring a camera to the 8th tee, looking down the fairway with Lake Ullswater and the Lakeland Fells in the distance is breathtaking. Equally stunning is looking up to the elevated 10th green framed with the majestic fells in the distance.

Suzanne and Dave were outstanding, albeit unexpected hosts. In fact, all the members and staff I met were friendly and welcoming, from the Pro Shop, to the members we encountered on the course divoting and in their fine restaurant afterwards.

I could not help noticing a real of pride in membership. And why not, this club checks all the boxes. Should, you be in the area, do not miss the opportunity to play Penrith Golf Club.

Penrith April 2017

Well laid out course with varied holes. Lovely scenery with views over the Lake District and mountains. The club house was nice and the food very reasonably priced, staff pleasant and friendly. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Leaves leaves everywhere

Greens are terrible, leaves everywhere and not gathered hence slow play because we spent time looking for our balls in the middle of the fairways. Leaves were all over the bumpy greens. Shoe blowers were disconnected. Should have been fine if they provided a cheap brush to clean the shoes and trolleys. If Penrith is reputed to be one of the best in Cumbria I'm very disappointed. And oh, by the way it's mandatory to play off the mats. But wait....YOU HAVE TO BUY the mats from them at a cost of £5 each or hire for £2.50. The only positive I could say is the members and their Pro are very friendly and welcoming to the visitors.

Nice last minute game

Looked on golf now and decided to book last minute due to price, I was not disappointed.
Slightly slow play due to society in front but not too bad.
Quality of the greens and fairways were very good.
Overall a really enjoyable game of golf.
