We made the most of the beautiful weather to play 18 holes in the hot sun. Considering we have not had much rain recently the course played really well and the cold beverage on the 19th was most welcome.

Well done Galtres - keep it up.

This is York so all courses are flat! This is a friendly course with leeway for errant shots, but watch out as there is water in places (and farmers fields that are OOB!). I have played here many times and keep coming back as it is really enjoyable - overall it's a fairly easy course, needs a bit of thinking and some holes can be long depending on the prevailing wind. The finishing holes are good with a par 3 and two par4's, with 18 needing a good tee shot to give you a good chance to give yourself a birdie putt in front of the clubhouse.
