Great club, shocking GolfNow

Booked online, for a tee time the was never available. The club , to their credit, allowed us to play, Andy in the pro shop looked after us and gave us a tee time after he club comp.
Excellent course in great condition and a challenge, but a fair challenge. Greens in fantastic condition, as were the fairways.
No complaints and great value for money.
As for GolfNow? Poor service, no understanding of tee bookings and I won’t be using the system again.

Perfect Holiday Round

Played here for the first time as a solo round. Decent practice facilities to warm up for the round which provided a fair test with a great mix of holes offering different challenges. 2-ball in front played at a good pace front 9 then left and a separate 2-ball let me play through at the first sign of me catching up which was a welcome change from other clubs I’ve played. Amazing views around the course and one that is definitely worth the trip to play. Didn’t stay to sample the pro shop or clubhouse but will hopefully be back!

Great day out. Recommend a visit

Friendly staff both in the Proshop and the clubhouse. Quick service for food but it was quite quiet. Course was in good condition but the greens were not as fast as we expected. We had a buggy , bit rickety, this time which was a boon as it's hilly in places. Brilliant views as the weather was very good if a little breezey.

Wet weather

Soggy but enjoyable....

Played here while on holiday in the Lakes. Weather was very wet (yes I know its the Lakes!) but the course was in great condition. Fairways and greens were tip top, literally have nothing I can complain about. Staff were friendly and plenty of facilities (range, putting green etc) available on site.
Would love to play here again when its a bit dryer.

Great layout but greens recovering

I really enjoy the layout and the different challenges of Penrith golf course.I try to get down for a few games a year. The course itself was in really nice condition for the time of year but the greens seemed to still be recovering from the work done for the start of the season. Slow and bumpy but sure they’ll be up to standard after another few cuts. Everything else was great. Very friendly atmosphere with great views

Greens not yet ready for season

Overall enjoyable experience - Pro shop and members friendly and allowed me to play throguh. Pace of play was good, surprised that I completed my round in under 2.75hours despite competition groups still on the course.

There was a strong breeze that made for some challenging club/shot selection which I expect is normal for such an elevated course.

The big let down was the condition of the greens. Preferred lies were still on but the greens preparation must be behind schedule. All the greens had recently been aerated and the grass was long and rolled so it was nigh impossible to get a true roll on the surface. Even putts of 3 feet would deflect off line.

All in all, I would play again given the opportunity but in my opinion there are better alternatives in the area.

Golf at 1000 feet

The course was just coming out of its winter slumbers and we did not see it at its best. Some temporary tees and greens but generally the course was in good condition and dry underfoot. Would love to play later in the year. Great welcome and friendly staff and members.

Great views

Unrivalled distant views of the Lake District fells. A good layout with generally easy walking. There were 2 or 3 temporary greens due to drainage work and a few tee mats but it was generally quite dry. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back.

Throughly Enjoyable

I booked a time through Golfnow for only £21(excellent value) This course is a well laid out mature parkland course. The condition of both the greens and fairways for the time of year was excellent. I had a delicious breakfast afterwards in a modern clubhouse with good facilities. Both the pro and the bar staff were very welcoming. I would definitely play again if I was in the area. I reckon the course would be fantastic during the summer months.
