Silecroft Golf Course

Have you been a member in the past?

Have you never been a member?

Would you like to be a member now?

We have a 3 month membership available to come and try your hand at golf and July through to October is the perfect time to give it a try,  you are never too young or too old to take up this game. Silecroft is a gentle 9 hole walk and don’t believe what the famous writer Mark Twain said, golf certainly doesn’t spoil that walk. A recent reviewer of our course wrote;

“Those opening holes are of exceptional quality, beautiful to look at and a delight to play with the sea just below you and the majesty of the Lakeland fells towering on the other side it is just so impressive.”

 

So if you fancy trying your hand or returning to the game of golf, get in touch via the contacts page, or email either of the following;

Captains Christmas Message

Dear Club Members,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2016.

My season as Captain has been thoroughly enjoyable, and the support that I have received from all the members has been fantastic and very much appreciated. The Captains fundraising from the members this year has exceeded my expectations, and I sincerely thank you all for your generosity and support.

Once again, Merry Christmas and best wishes and golfing success for 2016.

Ken Leece.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS COMPETITION.

A great day for the competition and everyone enjoyed themselves on the course, mixing the teams up always lends itself to a good laugh and good chat.
The winning team was made up of Helen Holmes, Phil Garner, John Steward and Doug Myers who if not happy about winning, soon would be after drinking their prize of 4 bottles of wine each 😉
But, the main reason for the day is to raise money for Breast Cancer research, and just over £1000 was raised from the day.
A massive thank you has to be given to Paul and Carol Hodgson for organising the competition and everyone who has helped them over the last 16 years, from which over £16k has been raised for a very worthwhile cause.

Captains Fundraising for 2015

Silecroft Golf Club Gents Captain, Mr Ken Leece, is raising money this year to install defibrillators at the golf club, all money raised will go towards the purchase of the outside cabinets for the defibrillator to be kept in, making them available to members at all times.
The defibrillator has been donated today by North West Ambulance Service, a big thanks to them for all their help.

 

A Message from the Club Captain, Mr Ken Leece.

As part of the Captain’s year in office, money is raised for a charity or for a specific purpose at the club. This year the Captain is raising money to obtain Defibrillators and the boxes to house them, outside of the clubhouse and at the furthest reaches of the course. He has been very lucky in that one defib unit has already been donated to the club by Lauren Watson of the North West Ambulance Service, with the promise of a second unit when the money has been raised for the boxes to house them. The first unit is at present held in the clubhouse, which is only open at weekends generally. This will be positioned eventually on an outside wall of the clubhouse, making it available to anyone in the vicinity, on the beach, caravan site etc. The club continues to raise money by raffles, football cards, organised events, and applying for grants or donations where ever possible. Any offers of help would be gratefully accepted. The Captain, Ken Leece, can be contacted on 01229 772162.
