Morecambe has long been recognised as the gateway to the English Lake District and a glance from most of our tees will confirm why. The views are simply glorious with the Lakeland mountains and fells stretching out beyond the magnificent bay and providing the best possible back drop for a relaxing round on our challenging course.
For many, Morecambe Golf Club is one of Alister Mackenzie’s masterpieces and whilst there are no par fives there are sufficient long par fours to test the very best of golfers.
In 2005 Morecambe golf club passed an important milestone by celebrating its Centennial. Always strong on tradition, the club prides itself on maintaining standards in golf etiquette whilst presenting a warm and friendly welcome to our highly regarded visitors.
The club moved to its present location in 1923 after spending the previous 18 years at several local but inadequate sites. A new, and at the time state of the art, clubhouse was built in 1924 to accommodate the burgeoning membership. The 18 hole course itself was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie and despite a number of alterations over the intervening years has retained the essential character he envisioned. Although a seaside course the layout is more a parkland style, enhanced over the last twenty years by an extensive tree planting programme.
The Clubhouse has been continuously upgraded to keep pace with modern requirements. In 1971 a major extension to provide new locker rooms and bar areas was undertaken, followed in 1994 with further improvements to locker rooms and lounges to accommodate a growing membership and increased visitor numbers. The latest bar refurbishment was completed in 2003 and unlike many golf clubs, Morecambe makes no distinction between members and visitors in its bar pricing policy, the same low prices are available to both.
Come wind or shine our rugged course will provide a stern, but fair golfing test and you can always be assured of a warm welcome.
Morecambe Golf Club’s location on the promenade looking out across the wonders of the Bay, makes it an ideal venue for all sorts of occasions. And the club has a number of rooms that can be used for staging an event big or small.
