A truly friendly welcome always awaits you at Windermere Golf Club. So, whether you wish to play the course, soak up the friendly atmosphere in the bar or enjoy the stunning scenery whilst eating in our restaurant, we look forward to seeing you.
In 1891 a group of golf enthusiasts from the Windermere area invited George Lowe, the professional at Lytham St Annes Golf Club, to visit the Lake District to examine a site in the area known as Cleabarrow Fells, near Bowness-on-Windermere, for the purpose of creating a golf course. He reported:
"I beg to report after seeing the ground you propose for a golf course that it has every chance of being an excellent course. I am confident of being able to lay out an admirable 9 hole course...From what I saw in our short survey I believe that I could play the nine holes as the ground is at present and not lose the ball, which is different to most others I have assisted in laying out"
