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.

The best municipal golf course I have played on. Everything is kept so well including the bunkers. Which seems to be a let down on most courses. Highly recommend.

exceptional greens

A lot of people are put off by the last four holes. But don't let that stop you from playing it.Well worth a visit just for the greens!!! Nothing boring about them and very challenging. Every chance you will 3 putt on a few of them. Rest of course in very good condition (maybe a little more sand in bunkers) well done all concerned at the limes... don't let all the good work go to waste

Bit disappointing

Played this course before. Certain holes were not on the correct greens, which considering the amount of time the course was closed was disappointing.

Brilliant Value

I have played the course many times and the last one being yesterday in pouring rain. Generally the course is well set out and looked after. In the rain the greens held up particularly well and even though the odd fairway looked a bit tatty it is understandable considering the weather! The course has its tricky holes and its opportunities too.

Greens are like carpets!

The greens are like carpets; better than most private courses I’ve played this summer and competitively priced and cheaper than other private courses. Great course to play for a council run course! First time I’ve genuinely wanted to go out of my way and provide a review! Compliments to the greenkeepers!

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.

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
