What the club says: Previously described as ‘a Diamond of the Dales’, Bentham offers a challenge to golfers of all abilities. The views on the golf course of Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside are a sight to behold on a clear day, with a breathtaking background of the Lake District Fells.

The course has been under the ownership of the Marshall Family since 2009 and has a bright future ahead of it following many improvements over the last few years. The developments include fully refurbishing the Pro Shop, clubhouse and changing facilities as well as a new course layout.

Visitors are welcomed with open arms every day of the week whether as a society trip, corporate group or just a couple of you wanting to wind down. Many visitors have commented on the outstanding quality of the greens and even more of them discovered that it is the friendliest of clubs, offering a warm welcome to new members and visitors alike. Is it as good as we say?
The only way to find out is to come and see for yourself and then tell us afterwards whilst you are sampling our food and drink in the restaurant.

Michael H rated 1 out of 5 - Sep 29 2017

Fairways were water logged
The course as waterlogged on fairways, in most places so really the course was unplayable. However the greens were ok, Have seen it in better conditions, so this report is only based on conditions today

nice friendly club
great place to play a round of golf and view the scenary. there was a bit of wet cut grass lying around on the day which sometimes was difficult to find your ball if just off the fairways. overall the course and greens was in good condition even on a wet day.

fabulous gem
Not played here for many years, but found the new layout to be a massive improvement but what really surprised me was the improvement in the quality of the course, from the greens to the fairways to the buildings, ponds, signage & everything in between is now right out of the very top draw, make no mistake this course is now one of the best in this area, right up there with Lancaster & Heysham in my opinion.

Family run golf course, wonderfully welcoming and accommodating for our needs. The views really are spectacular and worth the green fee alone. Course involves lots of elevation changes as you would expect. A must play course if you are in the area

Played Bentham as part of a society trip. We were well looked after, food and service excellent. Second time played here, first time in calm conditions. This time was in quite a strong easterly wind making the course harder. Good layout with some interesting holes especially those into the wind like first 3 holes. Nice finishing hole back towards the clubhouse. Greens had been hollow tined and dressed which made putting that bit tougher. Always worth a visit just for the outstanding views around the course.

Great weekend at Bentham Golf Club in which i would advise anyone to try. Very modern club house and a well organised course for all.
Views around the course and beyond are a picture postcard.
Isabel will organise and weekend packages.

Played this course as part of a society visit. Very impressed from start to finish, New clubhouse, friendly staff, our society was well looked after. Course in very good condition, lush fairways, true greens, not the quickest but very good.. A couple of stand out holes, 10th par 3 and 18th par 4 finishing hole towards the clubhouse. Food excellent. Would certainly return.

Played for $12.50 twilight in summer 2014, Blown away by the quality of the greens, exceptional condition. Fairways good also and a challenging layout. Worth the money for the greens alone.
