Decent round overall, friendly staff but a few things let it down in our opinions.
The facilities midway looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks, no loo roll, thick spiders webs etc
Some of the holes it was hard to work out where the fairway started and the rough ended. The greens were for the most part in excellent condition.
One of the later holes had so many leaves blown over it you easily lost balls. I found 3 others in the middle of the fairway while looking for mine. I get it's an issue at this time of year, but when you factor in some of the other fairways it just felt like it had been a few days since it was touched up.
You could see the course had undergone some changes over recent years, and a few holes were really challenging. I'm looking at you Par 3 over a stream surrounded by out of bounds which was fun.
Friendliest welcome in golf
Skipton GC may go under the radar but it is well worth the trip. Possibly the friendliest welcome around (as mentioned in other reviews) with some very nice holes. This course isn't mentioned in the top 40 in Yorkshire but should be. You won't be bored! Lots of great tee shots, cracking greens and many green staff working keeping the course nice. £35 summer rate is very good value
Really friendly welcome. The course has undergone restructuring, but this did not detract from a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of golf. There are some difficult holes to negotiate. The views are brilliant and the general condition of the course was very good. I would return to play again
Nice course in good condition
Course in good condition despite long hot summer.Greens excellent.
Next tees not well signed causing problems for visitors.
Lots of steep green to tee walks
Layout completely confused sat nav
I would recommend but would not play again myself as lots of sloping fairways cause me problems.
Friendly members and nice restaurant
Beautiful golf course
Myself and my golfing partner played this beautiful course in fine spring weather. Our welcome in the pro shop typified our visit - very friendly and helpful. The course was in brilliant condition with the greens very smooth and true. A fair wind was blowing from the West which made some of the holes play a couple of clubs longer than normal but nothing that would affect a card. Some of the greens were elevated and sloped with nasty drop offs so accuracy to the pins and good putting was needed. Some of the holes were stunningly beautiful and the views all around amazing. The 15th with the stream in front of a very tight green was probably my favourite hole. If I had one criticism of the course it was that it had a few too many doglegs so a little local knowledge would allow you to know how much of the corners to cut off. A beer after on the patio served by friendly staff (again) ended a perfect round. Par 70: Handicap 14: Score 82
There has been a lot of work on the course so the course lay-out has changed which we was not informed about until we got there, will definatly go back once the course is fully open again!!!
