Alston Moor Golf Club
The highest golf course in England (1476 feet asl) Alston Moor offers a challenging 18 holes of golf, over its 10 greens and 18 tee positions (mens and ladies).
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 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, is situated 2 miles south of Alston in 132 acres of parkland, high meadow and pasture land. 15 miles south of Hadrian's Wall, within the AONB, it offers spectacular views of the North Pennines.
With its small but friendly membership, the course is ideal for golfers, of all ability, who enjoy playing the game, at their own pace, in stunning surroundings.
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.
