Located in the northwest of Britain not too far from Scotland, the Seascale is a true links course in a place where any kind of golf, let alone links, is rather unexpected. Apart from a power station, the site offers some nice vistas, of the Lake District in one direction and of the Irish Sea in the other. Willie Campbell found that the site reminded him of courses in his native Scotland and developed the course in 1893, and the contemporary layout holds true to his vision and maintains its old charm. Nine of the holes are threaded among the dunes, making excellent use of a modest sand ridge; the other nine are situated on more level ground back away from the beach. Among Seascale's challenges are bunkers, creeks, native vegetation and of course the wind. The club prides itself on maintaining quick greens and its historic clubhouse.

An old links course from 1893. 6450yards from the back and 5621yards from the ladies tee, par 71/74. This is probably the best value I’ve ever had for 20£!!! Tees, greens and bunkers were in perfekt condition. Fairways could’ve been better in places. A beautiful links where you can see the ocean on every hole. Very hilly in places with huge dunes. Why they charge only 20£’s on a Saturday I have no idea.... or maybe it’s because of it sitting next to Sellafield Nuclear Power Plant? If you photoshopped that out of the pictures they could easily charge 60-100£ without anyone complaining.. 16th is probably the toughest par 4 I’ve ever played, 471yards, uphill into a 3 club wind... I had to settle with a type if bogey😎 A must to play if passing by!
