What we say
Out on its own for a hard test, worth every penny with great local food in the clubhouse. Archetypal hidden gem. A great test in an infrequently visited area. Discover it for yourself. There is no easy way to get here so it can be under-rated. A bona fide top 50 links with tight, undulating fairways exposed to the winds.
Top links despite its somewhat remote location on the Cumbrian coast in the north west of England. Make no mistake, Silloth is well worth taking the time and trouble to play whether it be for a competitive round or just a special golfing day out. Silloth undoubtedly delivers on both counts.
Created by David Grant and Willie Park Jnr along with Mother Nature herself, the course majestically winds its way between towering sand dunes and provides sensational panoramic views. It has a superb variety of holes with the star being the par-4 4th where you must drive to the top of a ridge to have any view of the long, narrow green that falls off sharply on both sides. Pick of the short holes is the Postage Stamp-esque 9th.
Situated on the coast of Cumbria, with panoramic views over the Irish Sea, Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club, established in 1892, offers an 18 hole links course.

I didn't know what to expect from this course before we got there, but boy was I impressed. The course is one of the best I've ever played. It was challenging yet fun. The wind was blowing quite a bit and I can imagine that if it was really blowing your score could be anything. This course tests all aspects of your game. It has a great variety of holes, and with the high sand dunes it can feel like it's just you and the course at time, with no one else around. The course was in great nick even in January.It's amazing value for money and I can't wait to go back.
By far the toughest course in Britain when the wind blows, and a mighty stern test when it doesn't. Played her a good number of times now, and rarely hit the same iron into the same green twice. Worth the trip, even from the deepest south, or the farthest north. A true hidden gem!
This is worth every penny. Silloth is 1 of the best courses in Cumbria if not the Best! If the wind is blowing this is a true test of golf. True open championship Quality.
