Excellent Value for Money

This is one of the best courses in the York area. Furthermore the cost is one of the cheapest.
Excellent course and clubhouse.

Been before and will definitely be back again

Sandburn Hall is a very underrated course, it is very well maintained and has excellent facilities . We have played here a few times and if it was closer to my home I would have probably signed up as a member. There is a driving range with bays, excellent chipping and putting area and a practice hole. The course itself is pretty flat so don’t expect any amazing elevated views but the layout works well with many trees and deep rough if you stray from the fairways. I have played in both summer and winter here and find it drains pretty well for such a flat course. The only negatives worth mentioning would be the wedding receptions they hold. This can make for a very busy time Around the clubhouse (but this is a hotel and events location so it is to be expected) and also if you get stuck behind the juniors or a society play can be extremely slow. currently the driving range was under maintenance but it shows the are investing money and time into improving the facilities. The pro shop is well stocked and a friendly reception awaits. Overall I would definitely recommend Sandburn Hall and will be back again (when the prices are at a decent rate through GolfNow).

All Temporaty Greens!

Played Sandburn Hall today and very disappointed by the condition of the course! This situation was amplified to discover when we arrived that the driving range was closed (until further notice) and that we had to play on temporary greens !!! I would NOT have booked there if I knew before !!

Excellent Course

Played this flat woodland course as a group of 8. Staff in the bar/restaurant very welcoming on arrival and the bacon sandwiches first class.
Pro shop well stocked and staff very helpful.
Practice area putting green and driving range first class.
The course has very wide expansive fairways which has sand traps strategically located so you have to plan your way around. The greens were in excellent order and ran true. All in all the course is a very fair challenge.

Sandburn

A cold November day with plenty of rain on previous days, the course was in very good condition. The greens were immaculate for any time of year , even paced fast and very true. A lot of work was being done on the course including tee and bunker reconstruction, but this only resulted in one hole on the front nine being changed to a temporary green. Sandburn is a good test of golf in length and layout, but it is fair and interesting. It is an easy walk as it is quite flat but never dull . A lovely setting and a very accessible club house make this course a good place to play.

Nice course, but long day!

Upon arriving at the course, I was advised by a member of staff that the juniors were just finishing going out and we would be following them on the course, so to allow 10 minutes before we started. I was in a 3 ball the conditions were okay, we are average golfers and by no means go round the course quickly.

Upon teeing off we soon have 2 juniors teeing off behind us, whether they came off the 10th hole I am unsure. It soon became apparent that there was a rather large amount of juniors on the course. We were stood waiting on the 2nd hole and the 2 juniors behind us soon caught up as well. Upon reaching the 3rd hole we decided to walk back to the 1st tee to ensure we have a smoother day and not stop start.

The front 9 holes we had no issues at all, the greens were by no means quick- maybe due to the amount of rain recently- but they were in good condition as were the fairways.

Upon reaching the 10th hole which is a dog leg right, once we had teed off and could see the green, there were 3 juniors still out playing. We came to the conclusion this was maybe because they had stopped for a quick snack, but it was clear in front of them so we didn't expect any hold ups.

Now I am all for encouraging youngsters to partake in sport such as golf and it was good to see they had a coach going round with them, however upon reaching the 11th hole it became apparent they were taking rather a long time between shots making lots of practice swings, which is perfectly fine.

However we were having to wait for a considerable amount of time on each hole. There was nobody following us round and after the long 12th hole the youngsters were sat waiting patiently on the 13th.

I thought they must of been told by their coach to allow us to play through- ensuring we had a smoother game. How wrong I was... I don't know if they were waiting for the wind to stop or the coach was trying his best to delay us. Every so often he would look behind but at no point on the back 9 did he allow us through.

We very nearly gave up and walked in we were waiting for several minutes between shots for them to be coached and take many practice swings. I am sure the coach will know who he is as they finished their round at roughly 710pm.

I was appalled at the fact he did not once consider us as golfers trying to enjoy a nice round of golf on a pleasant Sunday afternoon.

We started our round at 230pm we didn't finish till gone 720pm. Really is such a shame as I've played the course many a time and find it to be a great course- the new additional bunkers are very good and add to the difficulty of the course. We were all for spending money in the bar however by the time we had finished we just wanted to go home.

I am hoping Sandburn can inform me they were involved in a competition then we will understand the reason for not allowing us through. However if not I am deeply disappointed in the coach for his level of arrogance and really hope nobody endears the bad luck of following him and his 3 youngsters around the course in the near future. Such a shame and a let down to the club.

First time at Sandburn Hall Golf Course

We were very pleased with the course conditions and speed of the greens. Over 6000yds in length it is a good test of golf and ideal for anyone wanting a flat course. The whole complex is built to a very good modern standard with a separate restaurant. We will certainly return as we enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately we had to follow a visiting part playing in 4ball format and it took almost 5 hours to get round.

Enjoyable

A course that has matured well since opening, now presenting a decent test with some lengthy holes and others that demand attention. In good condition for the time of year, particularly the greens which were immaculate.
