Confusing ground, lots of rough, uneven tees

First time playing and walked straight on with no staff in attendance. That’s fine but it would have been nice if there was better information on the course as it was not straightforward. Lots of turning back on ourselves throughout. Some nice holes to be fair but many just don’t have a smooth fairway and it felt like we were hitting from rough a lot more than normal. Greens were ok but a bit water logged. Tees were very uneven at nearly every hole. Great location and surrounds but sadly not a great course.

Challenging course with spectacular scenery

Considering the wet weather recently, the course was in fantastic condition.
Lovely little challenging course.
Stunning scenery and well worth a visit. Surely there can’t be many more picturesque courses for that money.
Hard the first time on visit due to some of the holes being blind but great course to try and get to know.

An Enjoyable Afternoon

A quirky course with some very interesting holes. It was wet underfoot but did not rain. Course was well looked after and the greens were good and ran true even at the time of the year. Favourite hole....4th/13th. Super views across Ilkley and Wharfe Valley. Clubhouse was closed. Few people on the course made it millionaires golf.

yuk

The worst golf course I have ever played and I have played about 270 courses in the last 26 years. The layout is atrocious and course guidance is practically non existent . There was no staff and could not get a scorecard

Don't bother

Wanted a round on Sunday 17th march and booked on tee off times. The course didn't bother telling the site they had closed the course even though Weather was brilliant! We got there some members, president, Vice President and green keeper all had a full on argument between them whether to let us play or not because we pre paid. Most saying yes, 2 saying no.... it was an absolute joke! They did refund the money but the end result..... us proper looking forward to a round and not ending up playing at all with no where else near to go to.

This is a very small golf club with people managing it that don't really care and don't know what they are doing. They just close whenever they want and sit drinking beer in the very small clubhouse. My recommendation.... if you definitely want to play and don't want to be let down at very last minute don't bother going here.

A bit hard to find but worth the visit

Despite being a short course, there are plenty of challenges with many undulations and a couple of blind holes. Course maps were available around the honesty box.
Superb views of the Moors and across the Wharfedale Valley and no traffic to be heard on the course.
Well worth a visit for the price.
