3 month membership available to all – young and old

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;

Seniors Competition Programme 2017

Silecroft Golf Club Seniors’ Section

As most of you will be aware, after many years of organising the Seniors’ Section, Paul Hodgson has decided to step down. I am sure you would all like to join me in thanking Paul for the years of service he has devoted to the Seniors at Silecroft and we sincerely hope that we will still see him playing in the Seniors Competitions.

Over the course of the winter months Dave Hanna, Dave Billing and Jon Holmes have met on a number of occasions to try to sort out the Seniors programme for 2017.

1) After consultation with a number of the regular Senior players it was decided to keep Monday as the regular competition day.

2) In line with club policy it was decided that the Silecroft Senior Ladies should be invited to play in the Stableford Competitions but not in the four Inter Club Competitions.

3) Catering would be arranged for the Stableford Competitions and Inter Club Matches and this would be provided by John French at a cost of £4.00 per player.

4) It was decided to keep the entry fee for the Senior Competitions at £15.00 for the season. There would also be a ‘2’s’ Competition at a cost of £1.00 per competition.

5) In order to increase the number of opportunities for Senior Golf there are two proposals, which need to be discussed after the first Stableford Competition on Monday 10th April.

  1. a) To organise additional ‘roll up’ competitions on Mondays when there is no drawn competition.


  1. b) Have a more informal arrangement whereby any Senior who wanted to play a friendly game of golf should simply turn up at the club on the Monday mornings when there is no drawn competition at 09.30 or a Thursday afternoon at 13.30.

Any comments on these proposals to Jon Holmes on 773713 or jholmes00@aol.com

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.


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.
