Built in 1906, Alston Moor offers a marvellous parkland golf course with panoramic views of the surrounding Cumbria countryside. Golfers can be assured of some of the best views available also, as the course is the highest above sea-level in England, situated as it is in the heart of the Pennines.
Although only ten-hole, it offers eighteen tees for those looking for a full round of golf, and has a significant number of hazards on each hole, which provide a lot of danger for any stray shots. Measuring 5456 yards, it is fairly easy on the legs too, although bearing in mind its location, expect a few steeps and slopes.
The club has a low membership and this, coupled with the courses remote location, means that a golfer can generally play at their own pace. The course and clubhouse have been recent improvements.
