Appleby Golf Course

A gem of a course, with it's natural contours and fairways. Some new bunkers will make it challenging to any player.
The greens are a Bent / Fescue mix and are fast for this time of year.
Appleby is on common land so it is unusual as sheep and horses are grazing. The greens and bunkers are protected by a small electric fence. This all adds to its charm and staff are very friendly .
Worth a visit!
