A fantastic course, surrounded by beautiful scenery. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition and we enjoyed it so much that we played on three consecutive days. I can't say I enjoyed the long, uphill par 5 seventh hole, into the wind at the time, but the eighth, downhill, made up for it. I couldn't recommend the course highly enough.
Have just returned home from a great day on this course, a 10 hole course but with great variety on fairways and approaches.
The greens are well maintained and in excellent condition,
likewise the bunkers are full and to a high standard,the sand is also clean!
The course is beautifully laid out and the surrounding scenery picturesque and so pleasing on the eye.
All in all, I would recommend this course to anyone and I will be returning. The planning of the course make it an entertaining and at times challenging 18 holes, the second especially, take the tree on at your peril, the river awaits failed attempts!!
PLAYED ON A FRIDAY MORNING AND ARRIVED IN THE CAR PARK TO FIND ONLY 5 CARS THERE!! ABSOLUTE MUST PLAY 9 HOLE COURSE, WITH SOME TEE CHANGES TO MAKE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE SHOULD YOU WANT TO DO THE FULL 18. NOT AN EASY COURSE BUT NEVER THE LESS AN ENJOYABLE TRIP OUT.
After a long and fraught planning battle to get the course built in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, the club blossomed and went from strength to strength until unfortunately a fall-out between the owners left it almost bereft of members.
However it is now up and running again and remains an excellent nine hole course.
The first, a tight dog-leg with mature trees complicating matter even further, is a great test, as is the second, a par three aiming for a tight green over a fast-flowing river.
The third is a long par four with bunkers and water meaning accuracy cannot be ignored in the pursuit of length. The fourth is one of the duller holes, a somewhat mundane par four, before another tight dog leg, bunkers and water make the par four fifth another good challenge. The sixth is a tricky par three to a flat green atop a big hill and many players will struggle to drive onto there with a club high enough to keep the ball on the putting surface.
The seventh is a 500 yard plus monstrous uphill slog which is tough but through distance and altitude alone rather than any finesse in the course construction. Having climbed the mountain the ninth sees you drop down again to a green protected by a slope to the eright and mature trees to the left. it is a real joy to be able to hit the shot and watch it approach the flag from such an elevated position.
Overall, this is a marvellous nine hole course which makes best use of the stunning natural landscape and is well worth a visit.
