I’ve decided to choose Appleby as my first review on this website. A course I have played many times, a course close to my heart as my great uncle was captain here, and a course that epitomises fun golf.
Always guaranteed a warm welcome in a relaxed environment, and a unique golf course to boot. A course over a vast piece of land, with no hole particularly close or running parallel to one another. No par 5’s to speak of but does not detract from what is a truly unique experience. Noticeably, the 5th tee shot shooting high up on the hill, the fabulous 6th with its amazing view down the fairway, and the well talked about par 3 15th (bell hole) are my stand outs.
Peaty terrain, a course full of sheep, and 18 electric fences protecting the greens adds further uniqueness to a fabulous day out.
My top tips;
1) perfect for a stop off on a golf trip to Scotland (or vice versa)
2) a brilliant day out in its own right, particularly if you’re playing 36.
