Workington Golf Club lies just outside the small town of Workington on the Cumbrian coast, about halfway between Maryport and Whitehaven.
It is a splendid parkland course on the edge of the lake district near to Keswick and with easy access from the coast-to-coast route.
Formed as West Cumberland Golf Club in 1893, the club initially operated a 9-hole course on the other side of the town near Siddick.
After the course closed during World War I, the club reformed as Workington Golf Club and moved to is present location at Hunday Wood, where another 9-hole course was brought into play. A few years later, James Braid was called in to extend the layout.
Most recently, Howard Swan was brought in during the early years of the new millennium to carry out a number of unspecified course modifications.
Where is it?
