Set in 220 acres of the Lune Valley, this challenging 18 hole par 72 course has spectacular views in all directions, including the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Bentham Golf Club’s 18 hole course is a just a short drive away too; featuring seven ponds, it is known as the ‘Augusta of The Dales’.
