Where2Golf says: 

Brampton Golf Club is located in a wonderfully scenic area of rural Cumbria. Here sweeping panoramas of picturesque farmland and moorland roll away to the peaks of England's much-loved Lake District, while the small lake of Talkin Tarn sits alongside the course. However, adding a golf course into this blissful north England countryside was not such a straightforward task.

James Braid was required to muster his full range of creative design skills to get the best out of the rolling, undulating heathland. The resulting layout contains many excellent golf holes, as well as others where "local knowledge" can make the going easier. Especially useful on the more twisting and turning holes is to know where to hit the several blind shots that are required.

Although not particularly long in a modern-day sense, Brampton is a place where most players delight in the golfing challenges Braid (and nature) laid down and the splendid setting and the gorgeous views.

Did you know?

Just north of Brampton and stretching out to east and west, are many well-preserved sections of Hadrian's Wall. The wall, begun in AD 122 during the rule of emperor Hadrian, created the most heavily fortified border in the Roman Empire. It was the first of two fortifications built across Great Britain.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
