What the club says: This parkland golf course is situated in the heart of the ancient Forest of Galtres, just two miles from the northern section of the ring road around the historic city of York

From the seventh green, York Minster is visible to the south, and to the north, 20 miles away, one can see the White Horse of Kilburn on the Hambleton Hills. The rural and peaceful nature of this ancient forest area, with its mature oak trees, has been enhanced by much additional tree planting.

Dave (Leeds) rated 5 out of 5 - Apr 23 2015
Played the course beginning of April and was very impressed. A number of tight fairways what with OB but then some forgiving holes too! Greens are in great condition which always help.

Had some food before and after the round and the service was fantastic, great value for money and the food itself was great (large portions too which made us very happy after a long round!). Will definitely play this course again.

Having not played at this course for a number of years I can only marvel at how it has developed. The greens are excellent and the plantations of trees really come in to play now making this a challenging and enjoyable course to play. The Staff are extremely welcoming and the food was good I will definitely be back.

In relation to the review on the 7th Sep 2014 this is not inline with other reviews which talk about a well conditioned course and generous fairways. It is also worth noting that the person played the course the day after the clubs 36 Hole Club Championship when as you can imagine every effort had been made to ensure that the course was in excellent condition and well presented for the Members.

Nick rated 2 out of 5 - Sep 7 2014
7/9/14 31 pts off 22.Lost 2 balls just by rolling off fairway into first cut of grass which was too long throughout the course. This creates slow play as time is spent looking for balls which you would normally walk straight to.Had same problem when played here last year.Why is this the case as I would suggest it is poor course maintenance?

Very nice course. Greens in excellent condition. Some fairways needed some further cuts and had tyre tracks in. Think it had suffered from recent wet weather. but would certainly play there again. (Round played: May 2014 - Score: 87 Handicap: 18.5)
