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.

The course is set up well and definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area. Fine views of Yorkshire. Interesting holes with the only weakness the par threes.

Nice Course worth a visit

Despite the poor weather, rain, downpour and drizzle we all enjoyed the course. Very scenic and had some nice challenges obviously made tougher by the rain.
However all wanted to go back to play when the weather is good. Clubhouse nice and staff friendly, nice local beer as well! As we ended up the only ones on the course the staff waited for us to see if we wanted food and drinks!

Great course in a fantastic setting

A very well laid out course in a beautiful part of the country. Taking in views of the Yorkshire 3 peaks. The course in fairly tight and tricky but not unobtainable, stick to the fairways and you?ll have a good round.
Very friendly welcome and good facilities.

Really is a hidden Gem

Fabulous course with the Yorkshire 3 peaks providing a stunning back drop. Keep the ball straight and lay up on the longer Par 4?s and you can make a good score. New driving range so you can warm up beforehand - just make sure you avoid it when you Tee off from the elevated first Tee as a slice will go OB !!

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
