Where2Golf says: 

Carlisle Golf Club: Plenty of tall birch and pine trees, plus some attractive rows of beech, have created a distinctly wooded parkland feel to much of this heathland golf course just outside Carlisle. Although not overly long at 6263 yards from the back tees, Carlisle's par-71 layout has many fine features to provide a thoroughly enjoyable and at times testing round of golf. Several shortish par-4's will provide the opportunity to score well, provided you keep it fairly straight from the tee, and don't stray too far towards the tree-line. The 6th, 7th and 8th are an attractive and varied trio of par-4's, coming before the shortish par-5 9th which takes you away again from the clubhouse. Water is only occasionally in play, most dangerously as it crosses the fairways on the 9th and par-5 15th holes. The par-4 11th also needs some care on a first outing. From a blind tee shot you will need to find a fairway that runs out after no more than 230 yards, at which point the hole doglegs sharply to the left. Upkeep is generally good here, although the resident rabbit population are not assisting the presentation of the often deep, revetted, greenside bunkering that protects many of the typically long and narrow greens. Although there is not too much to look at beyond the course, the pleasant (though never excessive) undulations, fine array of trees and woodland, and well-designed golf holes will keep you pleasantly occupied throughout.
