Corona-virus (COVID-19) safeguarding measures

Further to the announcement made by the Prime Minister on Monday 2nd November and subsequent clarification and appeals we have been advised by England Golf that the St Bees Clubhouse and Golf Course are to be closed from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December.

To be clear that means no golf is to be played during that time, not even solo practice rounds, as part of increased national lockdown measures designed to suppress the spread of Covid-19, save lives and protect the NHS. Should the advice change we will update Members and Visitors in due course.

We thank you for your forbearance during these unprecedented times and look forward to Members and Visitors coming back to the golf course to enjoy the obvious physical rewards of playing the game, but perhaps more importantly, the benefits to your  health and wellbeing at a time of disruption to normal life.

Founded in 1929 the 9 Hole Links Course is a magnificent test of Golf. Set on the western shores of the Lake District, offering stunning views of St Bees Head, the Isle of Man and the Lakeland Fells the Golf Course proves a popular attraction for the local residents and visitors.

The course is extremely resilient and St Bees members can be seen golfing on days when other golfers aren’t able to play because their courses are closed due to adverse conditions. Invariably members play off the fairways and not mats through the winter and there are no winter greens in use.

Membership offers excellent value for money given that golfers can play all year round. Short game practice facilities offer golfers the opportunity to hone wedge play chipping, pitching and putting.

Whether you are a Member of the Club, a Visitor or a Student of the School we hope you find the website helpful and informative, in particular we would like to draw your attention to our Health and Safety policy which contains a hole by hole risk assessment for players using the course.
