6 reviews of Cockermouth Golf Club
This par 70 course is a little gem with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and some interesting challenges on the course. We looked it up whilst on holiday in Keswick and were warmly welcomed. The cost of £16 was very reasonable for a visitor. The course is in excellent condition despite the vagaries of Lakeland weather. The grass bunkers were an unusual but wholly appropriate aspect of the course. The challenge of holes 16, 17 and 18 was a fitting finale to a splendid round of golf.
We have played this for the last two years and will be returning next. If you've played Kendal and thought it was breathtaking hold onto you cap (you'll have to if it's windy) Fantastic views and some very individual holes. Agrre with other reviews the 18th is a bit of an anti climax and check the clubhouse opening times before you book your tee time otherwise you'll go home hungry and thirsty.
Our 3rd course on our Lakes tour, played on Wednesday 11 May 2011. The drive from Keswick is relativly flat UNTIL you turn into Cockermouth Golf Course and you drive up a narrow road which goes on and on and up and up! Passing the Clubhouse and parking up it looked tired and old and the car park tatty. BUT hey once on the course you are in for a treat, very quirky indeed, the views are to die for, they deserve the admission fee alone. Some tough holes especially in the wind, I loved the stretch of 15, 16, 17 great holes then 18 a shame was not as good as it would be a great finish to a round. Clubhouse old with full size snooker board and the cheapest chocolate and crisps I have ever bought from a clubhouse! The 2 ladies that stayed behind to serve us our Soup & Sandwiches were very friendly and the soup probably the best we had that week. Would definately play it again.
our society played cockermouth on day 3 of our trip on the 11th may.
the course is set high in the hills and the views can only be described as stunning. every hole has its own charm and its a very quirky track and i personally loved it.
i think my favourite hole was possibly the 16th but to be honest there wasnt one bad one out of the 18.
its a really friendly club and it was well maintained with well defined fairways and lovely greens. i would definately play it again without hesitation and it was also great value for money and the soup and sandwiches were delicious after play.
overall 7 out of 10
A magnificant golf course! very challanging long holes, short holes each one in a league of its own. The third is especally tricky you have a blind tee shot up a very very steep hill th you have a slight dog leg right where you have to carry a big ridge 30 yards short of the green,bunkers short, left and right and then if you hit it long there is a 6 foot high ridge which dos not come down and finally an undulating green which is steeply sloped back to front. A tough hole a tough course. With spectacular views, not one to miss with amazing staff!
This has to one of the most friendly clubs around.
The fairways and greens are hard, fast and undulating due to the geographical location of the course which makes this really interesting to play. I played on a hot day with little wind but members say when a more normal day is windier which tests your club selection methods!
If your in Cumbria, try this course.
