“As the summer gets nearer and nearer, the wether gets better and better, allowing me to get out on the local 9-hole golf course. At only £10 for 18 holes (you can go around twice!). It's the perfect time to enjoy with friends, admiring the breath-taking views out to sea, keeping fit and a bit of healthy competition! With a relaxed atmosphere, the family-run course at Beckside is great for amateurs like myself, through to the pro's! After the game we always like to stop at "The 19th Hole" (The Sun Inn), for a beer and burger! It's a friendly pub serving great food and has a lovely beer garden, perfect for those summer evenings. Then it's a 10 minute short drive back to Kendal."
Beckside Golf Course is a 9-par, par-63 parkland golf course, situated 10 minute drive from Kendal town centre. It's a challenging little course which owes much of it's appeal to it's unusual background.
