St Bees Golf Course is a 9 Hole Course situated on the West Coast of Cumbria beside the Irish Sea. Blended into its hilly surroundings provides the best of golfers a challenging round of golf, whilst providing sensational, unique and unrivalled views of the Isle of Man and Irish Sea.Although it is a nine-hole course, it can be played as an eighteen-hole course with alternative tees to be played from on Holes 10-18. It can be especially difficult when the prevailing wind blows strongest, and the small, challenging greens have caught out even the most assured of short games in the past. Alongside the small greens are some of the tightest fairways and your ability to position the ball from the tee is paramount. Thick rough awaits those who stray from the well designed layout.The layout of the course begins inland working out towards the railway line before circling back on itself along the coast line. The long par 4, 5th / 14th runs along the cliff edge and is highly regarded as the toughest hole on the course. Regardless of its degree of difficulty this is a quite stunning hole with great views of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man on a clear day and St Bees Head in the distance behind the 5th green. Running back alongside the 5th / 14th is the 6th / 15th as the course progresses using the natural undulations between the 1st / 10th . The 9th / 18th is a fabulous par 3 finishing hole with the teeing ground positioned yet again beside the sea at the highest point of the course. With pot bunkers surrounding the green and the wind from the Irish Sea making it a difficult club choice, the challenge of St Bees Golf Course is truly never over until its over …
