Silloth on Solway Golf Club, Silloth England

Silloth on Solway Golf Club, Silloth England Highlights

One of our favorite trips in the British Isles combines the Ayrshire Coast in Scotland with the Lancashire/Merseyside Coast in England, a tour that includes no less than 5 Open Championship venues (Royal Troon, Turnberry, Royal Lytham & St. Anne’s, Royal Birkdale, and Royal Liverpool), plus Prestwick, birthplace of the Open, not to mention Western Gailes, Hillside, and Formby! Roughly halfway between these incredible golfing coasts is a course called Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club in Cumbria, the most northerly links on England’s west coast. If you want to include a course virtually no one else from North America has played, or if you want to break up the trip north or south, you could not do better than the immensely challenging links at Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club. Highly respected within the UK and especially England, Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club is an industrial-strength layout in an industrial setting, a highly difficult course with heather, gorse, undulating terrain, and incessant wind. Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club is not without beauty though, especially the 9th, called “The Manx” as it is directed right at the Isle of Man, a par-3 right on the sea, with miles upon miles of sandy beach in low tide. Uncrowded golf, incredible value, a traditional club with a terrific billiard room, an isolated location—including Silloth-on-Solway Golf Club on your trip from England to Scotland or vice versa is more than worth it, Silloth-on-Solway is a monster of a course!
