What the club says: The 6276 yard course is a great deal more difficult than it might first appear with the River Wharfe acting as an ever-present threat for the first seven holes of this tree-lined course. Ryder Cup legend Colin Montgomerie learnt his golf here and the club also boasts Mark James as an honorary life member. His highlight of the course is the par 3 15th, of which he says: "it is only an 8 or 9 iron in but the sloping green can look tiny in the normal left to right wind."

Okay!

Ilkley golf course has a splendid course however it is slightly ruined by the GUR signs (Ground Under Repair) and some of the more senior golfers are a bit unfriendly and grumpy. However a decent course!

Always a pleasure

Second trip to Ilkley & reminded how good a course it is. Lots of early water to negotiate before the course becomes more undulating. Real varied mix of holes in stunning surroundings.

First Class

One of the best courses in West Yorkshire. The course is in excellent condition, with the greens and fairways outstanding and true. Always love playing this course with friends.

Seen better days

Have played Ilkley GC a few times now and always in winter months as usually offers a full course (no temp greens). Food not up to usual standards, bacon butty a bit dry. Members not friendly seem to not want any visiting parties invading their course. Course not in great nick compared to my own course, some fairways very bare, not recovered from summer months, greens slow and very uneven. Will I return again, verdicts out.

A great course in beautiful surroundings

An absolute gem of a course in the wonderful town of Ilkley. Course was in great condition and the scenery absolutely stunning. Pro shop very friendly indeed and they couldn't have done enough for us.
If you want to play a round in Yorkshire, Ilkley GC is a must for you.

Stunning views and nice course

1st 7 holes run along side the river but it doesn't really come into play apart from a couple of ditches. THen middle of course is a bit non descript before the last 4-5 holes which again are stunning and the last 2 are deceptively long. After warm up of 11 holes should really have done better but enough points not to disgrace myself but not in contention either.

Still as good as ever

Always enjoy visiting Ilkley Golf Club, friendly welcome all round. Course in usual excellent condition even though been a rough few weeks weather wise. Playing full course, not winter mats or greens. Got to be one of the best in West Yorkshire.

Course in great condition, surprisingly dry and firm underfoot despite overnight rain. Not a dull hole I can recall, and many very appealing to the eye as greens are well framed by surroundings and good bunkering throughout. Great value and friendly welcome in the clubhouse too. Well worth a visit.
