  • Silloth, just outside Carlisle to the south, was designed by Willie Park Jr. in 1892, and a bit later benefitted from additional work by the triumvirate of James Braid, J. H. Taylor and Harry Vardon. The result is a fairly pristine links by the ocean, laid out over sand but lacking in dunes. Native fescue, gorse and heather compose the rough, and make things difficult for those struggling with accuracy. The grounds are sufficiently spacious that length could be added to the course for tournament play, but there seems little point given the relative isolation Silloth. Nevertheless, a qualifying round for the Open is played here, as have been a couple of recent English Ladies Championships, renewing a tradition for the course, since Charlotte "Cecil" Leitch came from Silloth. This typical nine out and nine back course is almost always open owing to the protection its holes provide from the weather.

    Well I thought Seascale GC and the 20£ I paid there was a superdeal.... Silloth on Solway is as good as most great links and that only for around 50£! A hidden gem for sure!! It has everything, short par 3's, a few blind shots, holes where you can just bomb it and a few where the ball is on the fairway or gone... A great course in flawless condition when I was there mid September this year. I like the little sign in the green bunker on the 18th saying " if you have hit into this bunker please donate 50p to the charity box in the bar". Everybody can see you from the bar so you better pay ;) A must if you are in the northwest of England!
