Another open week has come and gone with record breaking fields. All staff work incredibly hard putting in extremely long hours over the course of the week so it is really gratifying to see this hard work paying off with terrific feedback being received from visitors and entries increasing year on year. Thanks must go to the competitions committee and all starters who assist in making the week run so smoothly.

Open week is a great platform for showcasing the club to players from all over the north of England and Scotland with players travelling from as far afield as Warwickshire in the South and East Lothian in the North and the feedback is that Carlisle Golf Club really is one of the premier clubs to play with our open week being a must for many golfers.

Our own successes worth mentioning during the week include Peter Maclachlan and Nicola Tebbutt who won the mixed and John Coulthard and Ian Boyer who were second in the Seniors with Jonny Mossop, Kieran Waters, Stephen Jopson and Marcus Dodds finishing with a fantastic score of 54.7 in the Texas Scramble, unfortunately on the day this was only good enough for the runner up spot.
