Nestled in the heart of the enchanting Lune Valley, within the embrace of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, lies a golfing haven like no other – Kirkby Lonsdale Golf Club. This exclusive members club is renowned not only for its challenging 18-hole parkland course but also for its warm Cumbrian hospitality that greets all who step foot on its pristine greens.
Spanning an expansive 160 acres of breathtaking countryside, Kirkby Lonsdale's meticulously designed 18-hole layout spans 6594 yards, offering an exhilarating golfing journey through nature's beauty. The course is ingeniously laid out in two anti-clockwise loops, allowing golfers to bask in the natural terrain while enjoying a diverse range of challenges. The front nine entices players to navigate the twists and turns around Barbon Beck and the River Lune before returning to the clubhouse. The back nine reveals panoramic vistas of the majestic Howgill Fells and reaches its zenith at the 15th green, providing an unforgettable view. The finale, a trio of holes against the prevailing winds, culminates with the iconic 17th hole - a par 3 that demands precision as it spans Barbon Beck.
Steeped in history since its founding in 1991, Kirkby Lonsdale Golf Club boasts two exceptional courses that cater to various skill levels. The Kirkby Lonsdale course, with its 6594-yard expanse from the white tees, presents a thrilling par 72 challenge. For those seeking a slightly shorter yet equally engaging game, the Lune course offers a par 70 experience over 5000 yards.
Beyond the greens, the clubhouse stands as a retreat for indulgence. A bar, restaurant, and pro shop await, ensuring every aspect of your visit is met with comfort and luxury. Spearheading the pro shop is the expert John Twissell, ready to offer personalized assistance, tuition, and even custom fitting services. The Performance Studio caters to the technologically inclined golfer, while indoor practice facilities and simulator rentals promise growth and enjoyment, rain or shine.
Kirkby Lonsdale Golf Club isn't just a golf course – it is an embodiment of the undulating Cumbrian landscape, a symphony of challenges and rewards, and a sanctuary of camaraderie. For those seeking to intertwine their love for golf with the embrace of nature, this is the place to tee off and transcend into golfing paradise.
