Ulverston Golf Club is a wonderfully natural and picturesque parkland course situated just south of the Lake District in Cumbria. Laid out by the legendary designer Harry Colt, the course offers spectacular views over Morecambe Bay and the Lake District fells.

This quiet par-71 course, laid out on a hill next to the small village of Bardsea, will thoroughly test your shotmaking, with every hole having its own special feel. The predominantly wooded parkland layout offers a challenging and rewarding round of golf with plenty of eye-catching scenery to behold.

Did you know?

The relatively small market town of Ulverston is renowned amongst other things, as the birthplace of the thinner half of the legendary comedy duo, Laurel & Hardy. Born Arthur Stanley Jefferson, in a small terrace house near the town centre, Stan Laurel lived in Ulverston as a youngster. He moved away to Bishop Auckland to attend grammar school, and then onto Glasgow, before later travelling to America (in the company of fellow slapstick comedian, Charlie Chaplin). Ulverston is now home to a Laurel & Hardy Museum, located in the Roxy cinema.

Up alongside the golf course is the Bardsea Monument, a distinctive three-sided "folly" built in the 1840s on the site of the former Bardsea Hall summer-house.
