What the club says: From start to finish, our course offers challenges, chances and risks for golfers of all abilities. At 6005 yards in total the course is not too demanding for the more sage golfers or the shorter hitters but rewards both the cautious and adventurous ball strikers alike. See the course guide and heed the pro’s tips to help you plot your way around. Remember at Barnsley golf course, getting to the greens is one thing but …..How well are you putting? Barnsley is home to some of the trickiest and undulating putting surfaces in Yorkshire and also boasts one of the toughest finishes too, concentration is needed right until the very end, only when you sink your final putt on the 18th green can you relax and head towards the 19th.

Who new it was on my doorstep.

Fantastic golf course. No disrespect intended but you wouldn't think this was a municipal golf course whatsoever. It really does show alot of private pay and play golf courses how to go on. Unfortunately they've had a little vandalism on the greens so they've top dressed the greens and you wouldn't notice. Will be visiting regularly. Obviously can't comment on food and drink with the current global pandemic.

well impressed

Greens in immaculate condition. very challenging, never a straight forward putt which adds to the enjoyment of the game., and puts a bit of fun into the round. Rest of the course in very good condition, well impressed, would highly recommend and will play the course again. Well done to all concerned

Great Municipal

Played a few courses this year and greens are second to none.
New tee boxes for next year and made some good improvements especially cutting trees back and mowing underneath.

Great course

Had a great game at the limes, good fairways and the greens are in brilliant order and fast.
A Hugh amount of work has been done on this course,Tree work,rough, and dykes have all had attention, but clear to see that they have not finished yet.
All in all an enjoyable day.
I would recommend this course, have a go see for yourselves

Surprisingly good course

Having had a poor weather start to the season, I was very impressed with the course after all the rain etc. The greens were in exellent condition, fast,the grass is starting to grow very quickly now, but the fairways look great short and striped, the semi rough was testing.
Overall i thourghly evjoed the game and course, I will defiantly be going back.
And would encourage all to give it a try.
