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.

Enjoyable

The course was in good nick and was enjoyable to play it's nice and flat and quite a forgiving course so theres a good score to be had ,in my personal opinion it could do with a few more trees planting on certain parts of the course.

First time I've played here and it was very pleasant. There was a society just in front so we jumped off from the tenth and that's when we got lost! ended up playing 10-17-18 then back to the first. It didn't detract from the golf one bit and I would recommend a round here anytime.

Played on a perfect evening, I’ve never seen a course so peaceful and full of wildlife. Always in lovely condition and plays challengingly but still gives you opportunities to score.

Lovely peaceful course

This is the second time I've played this course, and I loved it again. Easy walking parkland course, with room off the tee. The holes are great, the staff are fantastic, and I would defintely suggest a visit.

little gem

Unfortunately it rained hard the day before so the course was drying out nicely so it did spoil it a little bit. But overall the greens were in good condition and the Tee boxes were firm.
