What the club says: The course was designed by Alistair MacKenzie famous as the designer of the Augusta National course and many other prominent American courses and incorporates three examples of the Mackenzie green. Pontefract and District Golf Club was established in 1904. The course is an attractive parkland course with several interesting holes. Because of its compact layout is a good test of golf for a par of 71 and a SSS of 69.

Played on a quiet day so no pressure. Course was in good condition, and the greens were testing. Some tricky holes, Food after was very good too.

First visit and felt could have done better will need to return. Course in good condition, some tee boxes were worn and bare patches on some greens but did not spoil the enjoyment.
Felt safe in the precautions the club had taken for cov19. No food available on Thursday's.

Tidy little course

This is the first time I had played here, the course was in good condition and the greens were surprisingly slower than expected.

Great course in good conditions ther is a lot of hills . So if you like a flat course this is not for you . They do have golf buggys to hire but you have to phone to book them . But great course . If you play in the autumn try to pick a coloured ball ther is lots of trees . And now the leafs are falling so finding it is very hard

I have played this course many times and have not seen it in as good a condition at this time of year as it currently is. It is a joy to play and is quickly returning to the superb conditions of yesteryear.
