The Lake District is spoilt for choice when it comes to high quality golf courses, most of which offer stunning views across lakeland coutryside.
The closest golf course to the Inn on the Lake is Keswick Golf Club at Threlkeld Hall, which is about a fifteen minute drive away. This challenging, par 71 course sits on Threlkeld Common and offers scenic, panoramic views of Blencathra, one of England's highest mountains.
Silloth-on-Solway is of championship course standard and during 2004 it was voted 24th place in Golf Monthly's review of Britain and Irelands top courses, just in front of Royal Troon Golf Club (25th place). They comment that "Carding a good score is a true test of nerve and industry on this intriguing layout".
Eskdale Golf Club is a parkland course with stunning views of Scafell Pike and the neighbouring fells visable from every fairway. Their signature hole is the 151 yard Par 3 14th. An elevated tee looks toward an "island" green set within a vast trout pond. Other courses of note include Windermere Golf Club (35 minutes drive), Kendal Golf Club (40 minutes drive), Appleby Golf Club (40 minutes) and Maryport Golf Club (1 hour away).
Clubs can be hired at most of these courses. Booking essential. Non-handicappers can pay and play at Kirkby Stephen Golf Club, or Beckside Golf Course in Crook, near Kendal, or at Carus Green Golf Club on Burneside Road in Kendal.
