What the club says: This parkland golf course is situated in the heart of the ancient Forest of Galtres, just two miles from the northern section of the ring road around the historic city of York

From the seventh green, York Minster is visible to the south, and to the north, 20 miles away, one can see the White Horse of Kilburn on the Hambleton Hills. The rural and peaceful nature of this ancient forest area, with its mature oak trees, has been enhanced by much additional tree planting.

great course
excellent course, pleasant staff, but spoilt the day by a very slow 4 ball in front and they did not have any intention of letting people through 4 and a half hours for a round of golf.

Wanted to play this course for over ten years now and finally got round to it today. I can honestly say it was worth the wait, it's a beautiful course, very well laid out and a genuine sense of tranquility about the place. Add to that the lovely staff at the club, and it's a perfect place to spend a few hours playing golf. I'll make sure it's less than ten years until I come back!
