It was the first time we had played this course and although slightly held up by the pace of play ahead, we came off the course having thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
My only downer was that the signature hole is too early in the round as I would have loved to have another go at it when properly warmed up
If you hit the fairways which unbelievably I managed too, the course plays a lot easier but if you miss and go in the thick rough you have lost your ball!
The staff during these covid times were very friendly and helpful and I will certainly play this course again. Very happy to recommend
Played this course for the first time on a beautiful day.Initially you feel like you’re in the middle of a council estate but it’s soon apparent that the whole course opens out to a magnificent heathland vista.Visitors pay £15 and it will be the best value golf they are ever likely to pay.
Interesting & varied old style course
The course has a variety of holes each with their own challenges. The greens were in good condition with varying shapes and slopes
Very interesting layout. Quite a hard walk being on a hill and wind was brutal. You see everything at baildon- bike riders, dog walkers, groups of people on horseback, walkers, you aren’t alone at any stage. However it didn’t detract from the round.
I will say baildon have some condition issues- I’m not an expert but the fairways were not ideal, but it has been a strange year with furloughed staff, no rain for months then a couple of months with tons of rain.
I paid £13 for the round which despite the conditions on a few holes was outstanding value. This is visually a great course with possibly the best views I’ve ever seen on an inland course.
I also give baildon credit for lowering green fees and memberships this year due to reflect the conditioning - most courses don’t do that. This one should be on your bucket list if you live in Yorkshire
A great day of golf
My wife and had a great day, we felt very welcomed on arrival, really enjoyed the course and will be back.
Challenging but brilliant
Very happy with the golf at Baildon. A challenging course due to its narrow fairways however, well thought out course. Amazing back drop and scenery. I would definitely recommend.
Straight off the tee
The course is not overly long, however if you don’t hit the fairway you are in a world of trouble with heather lining every fairway. This is definitely a course for straight hitters and rewards course management. The course was in great condition although the greens were on the slow side, there was a strong wind which really challenged us, and knowing the area, will be a factor whenever you play. The views from the course are amazing and the members were friendly. I would highly recommend the course but remember if you bring your slice you better bring a lot of balls!
Baildon golf course
Very enjoyable course. Quite exposed but very interesting layout and while not being particularly long you've not got much room for error. Overall good value for money, very friendly staff and I will definitely play again.
Great golf course!
This course is one of the best course around Leeds! I have played golf almost 15 course around Leeds, and here is one of the best course indeed. Especially, the stunning view is top of them. You can hit a tee shot toward Are valley and Ilkly moor!! It was the best moment for me. In addition, the staff was very kind as well. Highly recommend, and of course, I will go to the golf club again!
Arrived at Baildon just after 9am and on arrival at the clubhouse was taken aback by the freindliness of the staff. They were absolutely fantastic in making me feel welcome. They gave me a free pencil and scorecard! :-)
Really enjoyed the course and was very challenging. Not much room for error at all. Fairways were great (when I hit one :-)) but greens were quite bobbly.
Great moorland course
Excellent test of golf. Course ‘eats golf balls’ if you stray off the fairways. Great views of the Aire & Wharfe Valleys. Well worth playing.
Solid overall course
Good overall course, course in great condition considering the weather, greens ran well and some lovely holes - a hard challenge for a bogey golfer in windy conditions.
Yorkshire at its finest
We have scrolled past Baildon GC all summer in favour of nearby Bingley, Shipley etc. How good can it be for £12? After the first hole transports you to the second tee, it answers that question. Glorious views, fun routing, lots of variety and a fair test. Members and staff were very friendly, it’s obvious that pride is taken in welcoming visitors. If you’re scared away by the wind, keep an eye on the weather and pick a nice day to give it a try. We’ll be back.
