A great course for long hitters.
Played the course for the first time post-lockdown so like most courses at present, it was in good but not great condition, particularly the bunkers and some very long, ball losing rough just off the fairways. No service in the club house other than a coffee machine and self service chocolate bars/drinks. Had an apology but no reduction in green fees to reflect the reduced experience. I have just relocated nearby and am looking for a club to join, I will certainly be back before deciding. I can imagine it has been, and will be again a great course and club. Defintely worth playing if you're in the area.
Great condition but “slow going t’day Marra”
First time playing the course which was in excellent condition and greens were very good.
No one there to speak to at the clubhouse so after wandering around for 10 mins I gave up and went to the first tee. 4 balls in front of me and that meant 10 minute + waits on most holes and gave up after 9.
The course layout is very strange and there are holes with tee shots being played over greens etc. The back part of the course from 4th to 13th is frankly bonkers and I got lost a couple of times although there were a couple of members who put me back on the right track.
Would definitely play again now I’m a bit more in tune with the layout as the course is really nice with some challenging holes and great views.
Would be good to tell members and ladies that despite their tee times no doubt being sacred they could show a little courtesy and let people through. The argument always seems to be “well there’s groups in front” but that’s a moot point. I could have been round 18 in 2hrs 30 mins but instead I gave up after 2hrs and 10 mins to play 9 holes. Staff nowhere to be seen but I put that down to the current conditions.
Definitely recommend this but need to make sure you are not being the seniors!
A nice course
Workington golf course is a well kept club, the course is not overly challenging but is a very nice parkland course. There are a couple of holes that have crossing fairways and some of the greens are close together. Overall it’s a nice club fun to play with friendly members.
Great course in great nick but members need to replace divits and pitch marks
The course is in great condition
Pitty about the weather (really heavy rain) but there was enough places on the course to take shelter fairways in great condition and the ruff down enough to find Yr ball easy to, greens were good too.
Okay condition, poor layout
The course is in decent condition considering the recent weather, and the greens are some of the quickest in the area. However the course layout is badly thought out and poorly signposted (we had to ask another group for directions at one point). There are a number of holes that are far too close together and we had keep waiting for other tee boxes/greens to clear before taking our shots.
Rained a lot fareways held up but some greens had a lot of standing water on them but still in good condition for the time of year
Workington is a course our group usually play twice a year and is well worth the hours drive, It has a good mixture of holes ans has good facilities.It is well laid out with some tricky greens.
Great day out
The course has challenging holes being well bunkered.
Well defined fairways with penal semi-rough; an area to keep out of. Greens were good and the whole course was presented in good form.
Bar staff were friendly and very accommodating and the clubhouse looked fresh and inviting.
Been wanting to play this course for a while. Upon arrival had a bit of a mooch about, It has got practice driving range area, practice putting area. 2 air line machines to clean trolley wheels etc. Facilities from what i saw where excellent, fully stocked Pro Shop, changing room facilities etc.
The full course had winter tees and greens, so course played at least 1 shot lower that par per hole. Course well laid out good map on each tee. It was a cold clear day ice was on the ground, ground was rock solid, so that proved challenging. In all a very nice course and will be back on a warmer day to play the full greens.
A long challenging course
The course is long but a great challenge and was immatculately kept with tough greens!
