What the club says: Set in a very attractive woodland area in the North Yorkshire District of Selby, Drax Golf Club is a real hidden gem!

The layout of the course makes it manageable for a beginner, ideal for the casual golfer, but still offers a difficult challenge even for the more skilful players because of its narrow fairways, variety of trees, hazards and testing greens which are renowned in the Yorkshire area.

Fairways terrible

Played at Drax in early Autumn after the hot summer and the greens were in fantastic condition but the fairways were terrible completely bald in several areas and very very patchy they had obviously been cut far too short during the drought and had basically died off bad

Lovely little course

Course was a little challenging for me as I am a lady golfer and my drive seems to reach all the ditches so, lesson learned for next time. Really enjoyed playing though

Good Course, Bad Timing

First time trying the course and fairly new to golf, overall course is great if a little compact, the 18 is played over only 12/13 holes so you double over yourself a few times and it can be a little confusing which hole is next due to the layout. However the holes themselves are great, some down and uphill holes look great and really add to the challenge. We went at start of April and course could do with a few touch ups before the busy summer period i think, a few temp greens on some holes drag it down, with these temp greens not being maintained very well or of a suitable size, a bad end to some great holes. It says to check in at the bar before you start but we were told we didnt need to, instead walk to the course and have proof of purchase in case a course guide asks us.

Some Temp out of bound areas marked by wire construction fencing takes away from the look of some holes and the course overall, but i'd say in summer when hopefully all the greens are back in action, the other issues shouldnt be an issue, be sure to scout the course using apps and the guide beforehand as we needed it to find our way a few times. Will definitely be back but not straight away, it makes good use out of a small space for a good variety of courses, but the small space does bring its own issues. However for the price as (we got a hot deal of £20 in total for 2 people) cant really grumble too much.

Course plays well, however there tends to be some very ignorant folk playing - Zipping balls around you with no shout, dont bother ringing any bells, loud around the course/poor golfing etiquette. 3 out of the 4 times I have been sadly.

Enjoyed it again, friendly and quirky

Second time we've played here as a society and it is one of the friendliest courses in the area. Always enthusiastic and helpful people on site to start your day off nicely. Course was exactly the same with the same issues around playing some holes twice but it didn't really impact too much. The free drop GUR around makes some holes too easy and the greens were a bit uneven in places. Overall another enjoyable experience and we will return I am sure !

Nice course, could be better

We had been recommended to this course and as we were mid COVID rules, we thought we would try it. The staff there were so helpful and really welcoming. The course itself was really nice, but there is a large amount of GUR close to the fairways which is a free drop and makes it too easy on some holes as you can smash the ball anywhere and its a free drop. Some holes you play twice which resulted in some near misses as the different tee positions for the same hole arent necessarily looking at each other (if you are new the course). Having said that, some lovely holes and on a blazing hot day it suited our needs. Although I enjoyed it, I probably won't play it again.

Played after a very dry spell of weather and have to say the greens were the best I've played on all year and the rest of the course was in nothing short of exceptional condition.

The course is in very good condition and challenging as mostly tight with some blind greens. A bit of a bottleneck at times but the course was busy and not too many hold ups. Would certainly consider joining, as the terms are very favourable at the moment, if I wasn\'t a member elsewhere

This is the 2nd time I've played drax and wow it was in fabulous condition today with the greens being receptive and rolling true ,its not the longest course so game management is needed if you want a low score but it was a joy to play.
