What the club says: Appleby Golf Club is situated two miles east of the town centre just off the A66. The club enjoys a golfing history dating back to 1894 when the game was played on the Minsceugh just outside the town. In 1903 the club was reformed on its present location on the Brackenber Moor. The Open Champion Willie Fernie of Troon laid out the course using the natural contours of the moor with short heathery rough and bracken to provide a challenging and spectacular course described as "Gleneagles in the raw". His creation is undeniably testing, as the 5998-yard par 68 (SSS 70) course contains no par 5's but some long challenging par 4's.

Appleby Golf Club is renowned for offering the best, all year round, greens in Cumbria and the friendliness of the welcome to all.

England Golf Central says "Appleby is a well drained moorland course which provides links like conditions and is well known for a wide variety of holes and several testing par 4s with outstanding views of the Pennines, Howgills and Lake District mountains". Described as "a hidden gem and excellent value".
?
Gary Wolstenholme, most capped player in amateur golf, says "Appleby is one of his favourite courses with excellent views of the Lakeland hills, some great holes and fabulous turf. Well worth the drive there."

A very open plain course

This is a course which gives you a challenge from down hollers you have to be restrained at and ravines and drops . The food and drink was excellent and provided in lovely surroundings. I recommend this golf course.

Classic moorland course that plays like an ?inland Links?. Excellent greens that are always superbly maintained.Long par fours and intriguing par threes combine to ensure that you have to think your way round to find a good score. Completely natural surroundings offering spectacular views of the Pennines and the distant Lake District fells. At this time of year the bird life is vibrant on the moor so expect to see curlew lark lapwing and oyster catcher in abundance. A friendly welcome awaits you. Full clubhouse facilities from next week following government guidelines.

Hidden Gem !

We drove 2.5hrs to play this course on the way to Slaley Hall amd what a good idea it turned out to be, such a lovely setting in the countryside with sheep running around everywhere. The course has been nicely thought out, with some seriously amazing holes like no others you will have played. Cute little fences around each green which keep the sheep off, but do sometimes get in your way ... just one of the quirks of the course. The 15th is a hole to be seen and played !

Super understated golf course

From the start, an excellent day. Ample parking, very friendly, helpful welcome in club house.
Lovely course. Superb views, very well maintained fairways and greens on a common. A little width on the fairways was helpful to a first time visitor. However the course remained a very fair test. The Bell Hole was a swine!! Thank you Appleby for a super round of golf.
