Appleby Golf Club
Only 6 miles from Wild Rose Caravan Park, Appleby Golf Club can only be described as an ‘Inland Links’ course, The Open Champion, Willie Fernie used the contours of the land and the heather and bracken features to create this course to great effect. Sitting on a bedrock of Sandstone, Appleby is free draining so is playable all year round, which is a rare thing in Cumbria! The greens are renowned for offering the best throughout the year.
Their signature hole, the ‘Bell Hole’ 15th, has Hilton Beck, out of bounds and a concealed green to contend with, but is worth the wait.
The clubhouse is open to non-members and has exceptional views across to the Lakeland Fells and the Howgills from the Gilf Pearson Lounge. The Pennines also feature prominently around the course.
Park members are welcome to play Appleby Golf Course at a very competitive rate, so bring your clubs along with you on your next visit to Wild Rose.
