There are several golf courses in the local area all with magnificent views of the sea or Lake District fells (most with both!). Local courses are happy to welcome guests - please check with them for times and prices.
The main local courses are:
Seascale Golf Club (3 miles) 'an "English Amateur Open Championship Course"'
Eskdale Golf Club (5 miles) '18 holes of challenging golf set in the majestic Eskdale Valley.'
St Bees Golf Club ( 8 miles) 'It is 5,307 yards in length, a hilly course with small greens and for those that stray too far, thick rough awaits them.'
Workington Golf Club (15 miles) 'This superb 18 hole James Braid designed parkland golf course offers a challenging par 72 course with superb views of the Solway Firth and the Cumbrian fells.'
Maryport Golf Club (20 miles) 'A mixture of links and parkland, the golf course boasts a fabulous setting with views over the Solway Firth. After the opening links holes, you are on to the gently undulating countryside before reverting back to links and the 19th hole.'
