The Course

Course Description

Silverdale Golf Club is an 18-hole course set in beautiful countryside near Carnforth between Lancaster and Kendal.


The course is in the "Arnside & SIlverdale AONB" (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) in view of our diversity of plants, particularly the rare Ladies Slipper Orchid. Early morning golfers may see roe and fallow deer, but all will have wonderful views of Morecambe Bay, the Lakeland Mountains and Howgill Fells.


Our 18 hole course is a par 70 (5654 yards) and is a course of two halves, each of differing character.  Much of the old part of Silverdale Golf Course stands on a limestone ridge, which gives our course much of its character and also accounts for our excellent drainage.


Holes 2 - 10 are rolling open parkland, with Myers Dyke presenting a challenge on 3 holes.  The older part of the course (holes 1, 11-18) features a combination of tight valleys, heathland and limestone pavement typical of the area. 


The13th hole "The Plateau" is our signature hole and is recorded in ‘Britain’s 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes’ as No 24.  It can ruin many a card, but good golfers play this hole well and see the hole as a birdie opportunity.


Our members are rightly proud of the course which is kept in excellent condition by our talented greens staff.  Our superb quality greens can be lightning fast, presenting a challenge in reading both line and pace.


Practice Facilities


The course includes:

  • A putting green adjacent to the car park, which runs true to the greens on the course.

  • A short game area for chipping and bunker shots near the 18th green

  • A 280 yard practice area between the 9th and 10th holes with 100, 150, 200, and 250 yard markers and a further four target greens at varied distances apart.
