What the club says: Ben Rhydding is a hidden gem of a course, situated in the lee of the famous Cow and Calf rocks, with stunning views across the Wharfe Valley. It is very popular with visitors, and you will be made most welcome. Tee times are available weekdays and weekends. Testing, short course with Summer par being 65 and yet the course record is only 62. Check our website for details of membership offers for golfers and folk who just want to give golf a try.

Most Helpful Review

Intersting 9 hole course on the side of Ilkley Moor. Trickey to find. Lot of blind shots. Honesty box at back of club house, £15 a round, locals were friendly. Fantastic views of the Wharfe Valley. - Nov 3 2007

Simon/Leeds rated 5 out of 5 - May 28 2015

Short but challenging, with a few blind shots to contend with for those not familiar. Must command some of the finest views in West Yorkshire golf.
Members invariably welcoming to visitors.
