What the club says: Baildon Golf Club was founded in 1896 and offers an excellent Par 70 moorland golf course, with magnificent views and superb facilities. The club is situated close to Bradford and is easily reached, yet enjoys a lovely country setting.

The course is unique to the area as a traditional heathland course with no fairways running side by side. The closely mown fairways are generous, with the rough made up of wild moor grass and heather, this combination makes the course a fair test for golfers of all abilities.

Course was suffering from the recent weather and clearly weren't able to water the greens, which was a shame as it made some of them almost impossible to putt on. Was a good setup, with some very tricky holes. certainly a course you need to play more than once to give it a good go.

I played this course a couple of years ago when they had lost the greens and it was terrible. They have worked tremendously hard to rectify it and I can honestly say the greens were fantastic as was the rest of the course, but to be fair the weather was superb and we didn't have to contend with the wind.

We booked on Teetimes and only paid £12.50. Despite the course being immaculate (perfect greens) it was fairly quiet out on the fairways. If you're looking for millionaires golf with a great links experience you can't complain at all. Good exercise as well with the hills but not ridiculous, would strongly recommend.

A very friendly welcome from all. The Club explained in advance that the greens were suffering from the recent weather but they were ok and quite fast. Its a very picturesque course and one which I am considering joining. Warning! A low handicap here will be an even lower on one most other courses

In answer the recent criticism, we are undergoing a significant greens renovation at the moment with an awful lot of money being spent on reintroducing moorland grasses for the longevity of our wonderful course. For the best views in Yorkshire come and play a fair test, designed by James Braid it will certainly prove a challenge for golfers of all levels. Will your game stand up? Come and join us.

Just played this course mid May. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Fairways shocking still on preferred lies and greens absolute disgrace for this time of year.
Will never go back.

I mention the weather in this review because on the wettest day in October we could not play the intended course up the road, Bingley St Ives, so because Baildon was open we plumped for a round here. Even with the horrendous weather the course played very well - drains well and not too much standing water on fairways or greens.
Picturesque with several stand out holes, a few tight carries to the fairway and some dangerous rough. Keep the ball in play, using your shots wisely in getting to the green and you can get a decent score on what is a scary course. The greens were woolly (due to the recent weather no doubt) and had been spiked but still ran very true.
The very small but reasonably stocked pro shop was manned by a very welcoming and helpful bloke.
A moorland course with hints of links that is a gem - but take some good waterproof / windgear as it's exposed up there!!!!

In calm conditions, the course plays short, but if you miss the fairway you are looking at a lost ball. You can get round using a 3iron off most tees as the only two par fives come at 17th and 18th, and apart from the 15th, all of the par 4\'s are under 400 yards.\\The gorse/heather is worse than anything the USGA comes up with and the greens are very fast. The greens on holes 8 to 11 were brown with virtually no grass. Pick of the holes were the 2nd, 3rd and 8th.\\Watch out for the walkers and their dogs, as well as crossing the main road. I would recommend playing the course but take plenty of golf balls!
