Played a few times June/July 2014 and the course is looking a lot better. Greens are nice and the course is in good nick. Some v interesting holes with some nice views of the wolds. Clubhouse is very swish (looks like a nightclub). The pro only charged me £10 for a 9 hole twilight!
Played on 19/5/10 and can honestly say the greens were worst I've played on.The second green appeared to have "roofing felt" showing through in places where what grass was on the greens had worn away!! After the wettest winter for years the course was in desperate need of water everywhere(Tees,greens,fairways and ditches).No course planners so buggies at £25 were needed at times to see how the holes went as there are several doglegs.
New futuristic clubhouse has small changing rooms and food was only adequate.
played the course on 26/09/2009 as part of a society and found the course ok with some interesting holes I was very dissapointed there was no course planner I think its essential on this kind of course fortunately the buggies are only £10 so you can at least shoot off to the blind spots and not hold play up too much. I suppose I'm lucky that at my own club we have sprinklers on tee's greens and fairways and so the course is in good nick all year round, hence the fairways were rock hard and some of the greens wouldnt hold even the best hit irons. All in all a decent course for £20 and must mention the state of the art Clubhouse WOW.
Played KP (as it is now known), on a very warm Septembers day, as part of a society, the course was in good condition, although the greens had been cut that morning (we had a tee off time for 10, & there were still people with tee times at 10 past, imposible to get 8 4 balls off in 10 minutes, wake up Mr Pro) they were still a bit bumpy.Have played this course numerouse times over the years and apart from the redesisign of the 1st tee not alot has changed on the coures, the changes off it are a different thing completely?
A very "retro" club house now awaits all, there is even a plasma TV in the changing room, the showers are tiled in slate, and the pro shop has now caught up with the times, and what views from the club house on a clear sunny day, looking out of the huge glass windows, or sitting on the veranda,
Unfortunately, that is were the good news finishes regarding the club house!, as I say, I was in a society (booked well in advance) we were in a 27 hole game, with the package included, what a let down. The staff were so slow that even when we came in at 12 o/clock, by the time we sat down with a pint, all the others were in, we had to ask for our soup & sarnies, as we were back out at 1, we didn't get the soup till 12:45, so that was a rush (not nice playing with indegestion), when we came back in after our full round, we all needed a shower as it was a corking day weather wise, only to find 1 "T" shaped bench for everyone to sit on, no where to put your clothes or bag, the showers were freezing with little pressure. We thought after our luch ordeal, things couldn't get any worse for the eagerly waited and needed 2 course meal, oh yes it could & did. arrived at the bar/dinnig room at 17:25 after a cold shower, only to get my meal at 19:10, they seemed to bring the meals out in 2s, with a gap inbetween.
The young lad with the white streaks in his hair does deserve a mention though, because he seemed the only one interested. After speniding nearly £3 million on a new club house I would expect decent facilitys and decent servise from the bar staff, there was only us and half a dozen blokes from Leeds in the bar.
All in all a realy good course, spoilt by poor management/staff and inadaquate facilities.
I will return to play again, I just won't be visiting the club house again.
Played in February 07, so course was wet especially on bottom section, a tough course with some good holes, hilly for the area which i thought made it more interesting than some other courses nearby. Good reception at clubhouse(static caravan), nice price I would go back
Our Bolton past captains' society played this course as a number of courses in the York area were closed owing to flooding. We were well received by the staff at what was short notice.
The layout of the couse is very good many of the par fours being dog legs. Memorable holes are the second where you have to put your ball in the right place otherwise the ball lands in the pond or if you are too right the green is blocked out by trees. The fourth is a par 5 measuring 600 yards off the yellow tees and follows a rise into the prevailng wind. But thanks to the generous fairway a player can give the ball a good whack without being penalised unfairly. The 17th is a tricky par three with wter on the right and a power pylon on the left one of my playing companions actually went through the posts and onto the green. This might be the best line in!
The greens were a little lush as might be expected following the wet weather but they were fair and true. The course was well drained and is probably plyable throughout the year.
All in all it was a satisfying day and the venue will be much improved when the new clubhouse is complete.
what can i say but wow what a tough course,played it 5th june 07 ,you have fairway,semi rough,half jungle full jungle,i really struggled on this course but really enjoyed it,green were sum of trickiest i have putted on and so did all of our 4 ball say to aswell,miss the fairway and hit any rough and your ball just seems to nestle down in it as i found out ,2nd is great hole narrow drive with pond on left then if u miss fairway sum very mature tree 2 go over,the 3rd par 3 around 200yrds if any1 has hit this green let me no,its a reversed green sloping from front to back,well worth a visit £20 on a 241 so a tenner each for 4hrs ov pain or it was in my case in defo going back 4 another crack and with a bit ov luck they might ov chopped the rough back abit but saying that the amount ov rough i was in i have prob chopped it down myself
This is a lovely course. Lying on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds and on fine clear days, offering great views of the Vale of York and the distant Pennines. A few tough holes of note; the par 3, 3rd. Tee shot to an elevated green with a large tree in the way for extra annoyance. This in turn is followed by the 600 yard par 5. A real brute if playing into the wind. The 18th, though not too difficult, is called Hunger Hill. Aptly named as by this time, after walking up hill and down dale, you are ready for the offerings of the clubhouse. Always made to feel welcome here.
Played Kilnwick Percy on a sunny day but was very wary beforehand due to the low cost, therefore we were not expecting too much. Clubhouse quite unimpressive (large wooden hut!) but everyone was VERY friendly. Catering excellent and beer good. Golf? SUPERB. Wonderful course, well kept, receptive greens. Good test of golf on an undulating course - well worth the money, well worth a visit. Cannot reccomend too highly! Play it, you won't be dissapointed.
