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.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
