Seascale: A traditional links maintained to the highest standards

Seascale: A traditional links maintained to the highest standards

Why we'd rather be playing this traditional links that is maintained to the highest of standards
 

Seascale is a golfer’s golf club. From the unspectacular yet welcoming clubhouse to the tough yet vintage links, the discerning golfer will absolutely love this west Cumbrian club. Of course, the club is helped in offering such a memorable course by its position overlooking the Irish Sea – with the Isle of Man and Scotland frequently visible. A majestic maritime panorama to the west is complemented by the Lake District mountains to the east. A good start to a course by anyone’s standards.

Seascale, designed by Willie Campbell and George Lowe, is a traditional links maintained to the highest standards. Located five miles south of Whitehaven, it fits neatly into a small area overlooked by Sellafield Power Station.

It also offers excellent views of the Isle of Man and the Lakeland Hills.

Open all year round due to the quality of the soil, Seascale is one that presents a great day both on and off the course.

History

Founded in 1893, the course is laid out over less than 100 acres but doesn’t give the impression that one hole is encroaching on another.

It is extremely important to make the most of the downwind holes here as the ones played into the wind can be extremely challenging. The quality on offer here was again proven in 2012, when Seascale co-hosted The English Amateur Championships, earning praise from the EGU.

Where does it rank?

79th in England, 325th in GB&I, 2nd in Cumbria

Where is it?

The Club is situated on the west coast of England in the town of Seascale, just off the B5344.
