This is a smart golf club a just on the opposite side of the motorway to the town. There is plenty of parking and a lovely clubhouse affording views over the course. The course itself is a very nice parkland layout offering easy walking. The seventeenth is pretty down hill par 3 where accuracy is key. The 18th runs in front of the clubhouse and culminates in a large three tiered green quite a challenge. The course is maintained to a high level and I would have no hesitation in playing it again.
Golf Outing was Top Class
guys had a great time regardless of the dodgy weather and there is every chance we will be back again next year.
Food – Restaurant class
Service – Couldnt be better
Course – Wow, hidden gem, championship class, greens excellent, cracking par 3’s
Weather – not so great but didnt really matter to be honest, it was that good

The course is beautiful. Full of red squirrels and lots of deer. Greens, even in January, are superb. And the food’s tasty too.

3 retired brothers outing. Carlisle golf club provided excellent location for annual, no holds barred, contest. Beautifully presented, layer out and maintained track. Recent wet spell made it pretty bad underfoot and lots of casual water. Welcoming professional and bar staff; beautifully prepared, and generous sandwiches.

A hidden gem of a golf course just off the M6. In great condition and the layout is a lot harder than it looks. Some superb par3’s and a very welcoming clubhouse together with a well stocked and informative pro shop
22 July 2017
Absolute gem of a golf course. We go there every year. Even though it’s a bit tough!
21 July 2017

Played the course twice on the 8th and 10th May, weather was lovely which always helps and the golf course superb. Myself and the Wife played with members and very impressed with well stocked pro shop and very helpful assistants. We also sampled some wonderful ‘Cumbrian sausage and mash in onion gravy’ one evening in clubhouse in a really nice ambience, so many thanks Carlisle Golf Club.

An interesting parkland golf course for all abilities. 15 lady golfers enjoyed golf and lunch here. The club house is elegant and comfortable with a perfect lunch menu for hungry golfers.

This is a course I had not played in quite a number of years so was keen to go back to see how it had developed over the years. The answer to that is that it has flourished and is good if not better than I remembered. The same warm welcome greeted you in both the fully stocked pro shop as it did in the clubhouse with an honest air about the place giving you that feel good factor. It offers up a good test of golf and is always in very good condition and was on our visit despite it being very late in the golfing season. It is a course that you would never get bored with as each hole offers you something different and enjoyable even if the golf is not great. The layout is excellent and does not have boring holes anywhere on the course with each one offering a challenge in its own right – which all of the group appreciated. We were staying in Penrith and it is only a 20 – 25 minute drive north up the M6 and is located not far from the exit and easy to find. It is an enjoyable course and well worth travelling those few extra miles. It was the first visit for the other 3 golfers in my group who all shared the same opinion that is was an excellent golf course and was a firm but fair test of golf with an equal share of birdie holes to some a little more difficult. It is pleasing to the eye and not too hilly for those less active – but if in doubt hire buggy – we always walk as we like to see all that the course has to offer and we just about managed that during our round. So all in all an excellent course that I will be definitely not be leaving too long before I visit again.

I just wanted to write and say how much I really enjoyed last Friday’s Corporate Day. Everything was very well organised and ran smoothly. The food was good, the company good and I am sure all who took part really appreciated the day. All best wishes to you and your team for future events.
25 September 2016
Beautiful parkland course kept in near immaculate condition. Not too long of the yellow tees but a real challenge of the whites. Varied menu of snacks and meals in a lovely clubhouse.
31 August 2016
Just to say thank you very much for your hospitality.
We were ably looked after for lunch and very much enjoyed our round of golf on your excellent course.
All very impressively presented by your greens staff and great value on our County card.
Thanks again – we hope to be back and will have no hesitation in recommending it others.

Our party visited Carlisle again last Friday and had an absolute ball. We enjoyed Moffat on the Wednesday. Thornhill, all day Thursday was great, but Carlisle once again topped it off superbly.
As a visitor…..What a golf set up. Seriously impressive. We loved it. The course was magnificent and that is the main reason for coming obviously, so hats off to the green staff. Immaculate. Best ever. Our welcome from everyone involved at Carlisle GC was top notch from the Pro shop staff to the bar and catering guys…. and the food afterwards…… Whatever you are paying the Chef, she or he deserves more!!
As you can gather we had a marvellous finale to our annual Tour. I said prior to leaving….”you Captain a fine ship” and I mean every word of it. Class.
Thanks and hope to see you again before the winter kicks in, with group from my home club.

Carlisle then might not be on everyone’s bucket list for a visit and a couple of rounds of golf. But following our recent visit, I can report that our golfing party of 4 couples were more than impressed.
The GENUINE warm welcome that we received from staff and members at both Carlisle Golf club, and neighboring Eden Golf club was really refreshing to witness. Equally both establishments could not be faulted for their hospitality in and around the clubhouse and the golf tracks proved to be an excellent challenge likewise.
We would have no hesitation in recommending these Golf clubs as a pleasant alternative to the major overpriced so called golf resorts. The local and friendly touch certainly left its mark on our group.
22 July 2016
We would like to thank Carlisle Golf Club & all the staff for making such a memorable day for Mark Nield Wealth Management and all of our guests.
The course was fantastic as was the location and catering.
We will definitely be using Carlisle Golf Club again in the near future.
19 June 2016
Addictive, challenging, friendly, difficult, beautiful.
18 June 2016
Cracking golf course – thoroughly enjoyed it.
16 June 2016
Quite a few blind tee shots but great to play. Would not miss any future opportunities to play.
24 May 2016
Played Carlisle Golf course today, the course was in great condition, the greens were running true. The greens in particular impressed me. Clubhouse was good. Overall an excellent day and one I can’t wait to play again.
16 May 2016
Played this course on Sunday – had great weather and the course was in tremendous condition excellent day of golf, good food before & after, will be back in the future.
28 November 2015
Friendly atmosphere with some great holes. Would like to return.
14 September 2015
The course and clubhouse were presented in excellent condition for the first day of our annual match between 3 societies (now in its 36th year). We have been using Carlisle for many years and whilst the course has always been presented in good condition lots of our attendees commented both this year and last how much the facilities have been improved. The standard and service of food was first class and the way they could accommodate our request for tee times to enable us to play 36 holes was much appreciated.
6 August 2015
Challenging course with unreadable greens! Good condition, good bunkering a fair test.
Food in the clubhouse very good, young staff attentive but not overbearing. Enjoyable.
29 July 2015
This is a wonderful course for all levels; give it a go you will enjoy. We found all staff friendly & helpful. Food was brilliant too
17 July 2015
A great course with excellent catering facilities and easily accessible from the M6. This is certainly one of the top parkland courses in the North West with tree lined fairways and undulating greens. Well worth a visit if you haven’t played there.
28 June 2015
Thank you for your support and hospitality for myself and my playing partner on my Captain’s Challenge Day.
The Course is a credit to your greenkeepers and your members. We thoroughly enjoyed our round and felt well supported and welcomed by your members and staff.
17 June 2015
As a group of 4 male golfers, we come to the Lake District each year in June and always play one game at Carlisle having first had it recommended to us by our wives! As usual they were right as it turned out – beautiful course in great condition – challenging but not too difficult with some very interesting holes. The welcome was as good as ever from the staff and members and we have already decided to return next year.
6 June 2015
Class course! Love parkland Golf? You’ll love this.
17 April 2015
As a group of 8 “Senior” golfers we played Carlisle GC for the first time. We were all very impressed with the layout and quality of the course where there are some fantastic holes. In good condition for so early in the season. We will go again.
17 August 2014
Having as a group previously played Carlisle Golf Club last year we were keen to go back. We were not disappointed. Marvellous course. Great friendly welcome and excellent food served throughout our day there. When can we return? Steve G, Morpeth Golf Club.
8 July 2014
The 3rd golf club that we played on our weekend away. The course was in great condition, and everyone we met, staff and members were very friendly and helpful ……. I would recommend any golfer or society to book a round.
Jo, just a quick thank you to you and the staff at the club on behalf of the Police Golf Society! Everyone had a good day despite the weather and I am sure we will be looking to book a return visit next year!
Can I just let you know what a great day the club hosted for us all yesterday? The guys really enjoyed the facilities throughout the day, the welcome in the clubhouse from 7.15 am onwards was terrific! Your catering guys and girls all looked after us so well, Graeme you professional was brilliant too. but massive thank you to you Jo, for organising us when we were last minute with the confirmations. The course was superb, and will you please pass on my personal thanks to the green-keeper and staff….we will be back!
Many thanks indeed,
Jo, On behalf of our party of six I wish to thank everyone at your Club for their general friendliness and welcome during our visit yesterday. All the staff met during our stay were courteous and very professional, which reinforced our impressions of a top quality venue. We all agreed that even during a round in very unpleasant weather conditions, the course was quite simply…….Magnificent. One of the best parkland courses we have played anywhere. We were amazed during the round to witness one of the green staff power blowing grass cuttings away from the edges of the fairway after mowing it……and that was in lashing rain. We could do with a few like him at our course.!!! Your clubhouse and facilities are first rate and your members should be privileged to be a part of such a fine club. I am a Geordie, and proud of it ……but Oh how I’d like to “turn Cumbrian” if I were able to play Carlisle on a regular basis. We look forward to returning soon.
