LAKE DISTRICT, ENGLAND — Situated in the heart of the English Lake District, Windermere Golf Club is regarded as one of the finest courses in Cumbria. Located in the heart of the Lake District, the course is awe inspiring, with the natural rolling landscape providing protection for the course which measures a modest 5122 yards (par 67 with a standard scratch of 66).
Established in 1891, the course is unique – modest in length but challenging and offering spectacular views of Windermere and the surrounding fells and some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in the UK.
Situated in a World Heritage Site with the stringent planning permissions of a National Park, the course has to manage without bunkers, but natural hazards including heather and bracken in the rough combined with narrow fairways and rocky outcrops ensures that the course provides a challenge to golfers of all levels and abilities.
With some of the best USGA standard greens in the country, paired with fantastic fairways, the course is famous for its excellent condition. The greenkeeping team work hard to ensure that throughout the year the quality of the playing surface matches the quality of the views – on a clear day players can get wonderful 360 degree panoramic views from Morecambe Bay in the South, Coniston Old Man in the West, the Langdales and Fairfield Horseshoe in the North before sweeping round to High Street in the North East and the Pennines in the East.The welcome at Windermere matches it’s wonderful course and spectacular landscape; we know that you will not be disappointed.
“Courses don’t come much more scenic than this magical layout at the heart of the Lake District and boasting quality USGA-spec greens.“ – Todays Golfer
“…. a joyous layout of meandering becks, sweeping descents, strenuous ascents, rocky outcrops, and swathes of luxuriant heather, especially on the front nine. You start off up and over a blind crest, which sets the Windermere tone, then duck and dive your way through a series of wondrous holes, all the while accompanied by stunning Lakeland backdrops.” – Golf Monthly
