Great course in stunning scenery

Great course set in stunning scenery. Course was in excellent condition with the greens running really well. There is a real need to stay on the fairways here as the rough is quite severe. Every hole is a test but my favourite is the long par 3 10th. Very hilly but well worth a visit. Highly recommended.

An acquired taste?.

Fine if you like playing blind holes. Probably a much better experience second time round. Take plenty of golf balls with you.

Lovely Views

Writing a review of Windermere shouldn't be that hard, and I doubt it will be much different to most other reviews. It'll be along the lines of "Windermere is a gorgeous course in stunning scenery, it's not long, but it makes up for that by being fairly tight. There aren't any bunkers, but you won't always get a flat lie. Oh, and it's hilly, so take that into consideration when deciding whether to get a buggy. The greens, tees and fairways are all excellent".

What else is there to say? My favourite hole is the par 3 8th.

Lovely gem, no bunkers !

Great little course, very well kept and professional staff in the pro shop. I didn't realise until half way round that it has no bunkers, but as every hole is so amazingly different who cares. Will definitely be back.

Windermere Golf Club

Very short course but don't let that put you off, small greens, fairways are tight and undulating with no bale out area for wayward shots. The staff in the shop were welcoming and let me have the round cheaper as there was hollow tining and sanding going on. Good views and course in good condition.

Beautiful course beautiful location

Booked for 08:04 but arrived 07:30 with no other players in sight. Ground staff busy at work. The first is quirky with the challenge of negotiating a decent natural obstacle and away we went.
The fairways were well maintained well cut and clear of cuttings. The free we?re even better and quick as!! There are some interesting challenging holes and the views outstanding. Well worth a visit if you get the chance.
One minor gripe was the solo female playing two balls that tee?d off after us and challenged us about teeing off early, much like she had!! She is the reason I would never join a golf club. She as good as told us she would be playing through and questioned out tee time. I chose not to question hers, or the playing of two balls or the fact the playing solo she should really wait. Had she however have spoken to guests at her club a little more politely we would happily have invited her to play through, even playing two balls.
As long as you tee off after 07:56 you will really enjoy your day out on a wonderful course. It?s short and without bunkers but the challenge makes up for it. Good luck
