”The hype is real, ” a quote from a first time visitor to Silloth for our annual two day event at this amazing setting.

The sunshine was an added bonus and we were blessed with two great days of it. Don’t be fooled that the conditions would make this course an easy ride as this tough links likes to bear its teeth on occasions, for once our golfers seemed to get the better of Silloth. We have run out of superlatives to describe Silloth and our visits but this being our 8th year (9th already in the diary ) and a golf course we’d play every day tells its own story.

Day one proved to be a touch harder of the two days with slightly less wind, a little warmer with all the scoring being very close – 42 points being the score to beat. Despite a night in the town, the scoring on day two was incredible with only 5 pairs not breaking par from 100 players.

Our winners, long time Tour members from Cavendish Golf Guide Mike Oakes & Malcolm Forder scored an amazing 47 points playing off 10 & 5 with 6 bridies but taking full advantage of their shot holes which included birdies on 3 of the Par 3’s. Congratulations gents winning the Callaway Cart bags and some well earned OOM points moving them into the top 10.
