The star of Cumbrian golf lies out on a limb on the county's north-west coast. Well-defended from the start via the 1st's distinctive sunken green, swathes of gorse and heather then combine with often surprising changes in elevation and direction to ensure a test well beyond its relatively modest yardage. Incredible value for a course of this calibre.

Panellists' comments: "If pure enjoyment is the true measure, then Silloth scores very highly"; "A links you would never tire of"
