What the club says: The parkland course is sited on the world's first nature reserve. Charles Waterton a pioneering Victorian naturalist created the nature reserve in 1820 and he dedicated his life to preserving the local wildlife in this area, and today we still share the park with all manner of wildlife. The golf course was designed by Simon Gidman and opened in 1995.
The design cleverly exploits the 200 acres available, creating a spaciousness not found in many courses set in smaller areas. The par 72 course has been built to extremely high standards with USGA specification greens and tree-lined fairways. The club prides itself on the condition of the course especially its fairways and greens, the greens are in play all year round.

Graham F rated 4 out of 5 - Oct 16 2014
What a great golf course, very long walk from greens to tees, not an easy walk round along way plus very steep, and the day we played was wet and slippery. greens in perfect condition, the rough thu is very long, if you go in it just reload, as you will not find your ball.

Played 25th June. Course excellent. Great fairways and greens and a 'steal' at £20.00 per round. Best course we've played on for ages. Will definitely go again soon.

Matt Harper rated 5 out of 5 - Oct 2 2013
Played this course over the last 2 years and it's always been in good condition but the rough made it quite penal. This year it is in fantastic condition and most of the rough has gone so incredibly playable and greens are quite quick. Pro shop staff very friendly and made me feel very welcome. Bargain of the year at £20.

Stunning golf course in an incredible setting. One of the inset courses in Yorkshire and always a pleasure to play...even in the howling wind and driving rain. (Round played: Sep 2013 - Score: 91 Handicap: 16.8)

At £20 through Tee Off Times, this is excellent value for money. Resort like with a course set out for buggies and a hotel in the grounds, this course is in excellent condition, the rough trimmed since earlier in the year, some excellent driving holes but also some which require considerable course management. highly recommend.

What a great course and hidden gem. Has a country ckub feel to it, with hotel on site offering pay and play packages. Course was in great nick. Stay on the fairways as the rough was penal but the fairways are wide enough if yoiu're accurate. Great price and ideal for a society day out or full days golfing.

Have played the course many times and it was great.... right up until recently as they decided to let the rough grow to about 2 feet, so unless you are a single handicapper don't bother, and if you do go take plenty of balls

Too expensive (£55 on tee off times) but worth a treat, first 3 holes a bit disapointing with poor greens, but then it gets good, finishing 5 holes are very good indeed.
