Course Designer Cotton/Goodwin in the 1940's
Directions Set in the majestic Eskdale Valley.
From the South: Leave the M6 at junction 36 and take the A590 Westwards towards Barrow. At Greenodd turn right on to the A5092 to Broughton in Furness. From there follow the A595 all the way to the river Esk. After crossing the River the entrance to the private drive to Eskdale Estate is to the right after 300 yards, just before the road winds it way uphill towards Muncaster castle
From the North: Leave the M6 at junction 43 or 42 and make for Cockermouth. Follow the signs to Eggremont on the A595. Passing Gosforth and Holmrook you will come to Muncaster castle on the right. Half a mile further downhill as the A595 bends to the right you will find our entrance on the left.
Eskdale Golf Club has its own private salmon fishing river and self catering accommodation

Comment "The signature hole is undoubtedly the 151 yard 14th. An elevated tee looks towards a green set within a vast trout pond which requires an accurate shot to stay out of trouble".

Although only short, the course plays longer than the card suggests. Little run on the fairways, even in summer due to the riverside / woodland location, combined with tiny undulating greens combine to make this a test for all standards of golfer. Several holes require careful placement off the tee, with a 5-wood being the prudent option. Smash it like Bubba and you will find trouble aplenty.
I play the course regularly during the season, and would recommend it as a different type of challenge, having spent much of my adult life playing links courses.
Off course facilities are slightly limited, although catering can be arranged by prior booking.
