What the club says: Visitors are warmly welcomed at Ripon, where golf has been enjoyed since 1908 in peaceful and tranquil rural surroundings.

Golfers can look forward to playing a picturesque parkland course in wonderful condition all year round and enjoy magnificent views of the North Yorkshire Moors, the city's famous Cathedral, and surrounding countryside. After the round visitors can enjoy the Clubhouse and new Balcony offering views over 4 greens.

Ripon City Golf Club is one of North Yorkshire’s finest courses and lies just outside the ancient cathedral city, just a few miles north of Harrogate and a short drive from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

Great shortish course

Game of 2 halves. Started with Par 3, then went across road and played fairly old 8 holes. Plenty of character and ravines. Back to the other side from 11th. A newer half with not so much elevation and character but more distance. A bit too samey but overall a good test.

Very Tricky Course

Me and the wife played here in June 2018. After playing the first we wandered over to the nearest tee and played down that hole. Mistake number one. This was the 10th or 11th I forget. So we're now playing the back nine. Sure we should have looked but hey ho. So beware the 2nd is THROUGH THE WALL!!!! Thing is we're now playing the easy bit. Standard stuff. Parkland. Nice greens. 14th is a nice water hole. So now to the front nine. Hell on earth. Up hill down dale. Shots over ravines. Blind tee shots to lord knows where. If you don't know where to go you're stuffed. Not the place for a nice pleasant walk round. Lost too many balls. Sorry guys if you can't play golf to a reasonable standard, stay away. This is a tough place to play. Lovely clubhouse. Great balcony. One more thing. DO NOT PLAY IN A BRIGHT COLOURED TOP. We were covered, and I mean covered in little black flies all the way round. We were like Pig Pen from Charlie Brown (look him up). Black clouds of the damned things following us around. Was not nice at all.

Ripon City Golf Club,The jewel of North Yorkshire

Ripon City Golf Club is one of the best tracks I have played.
Grounds are immaculate with great fairways and greens with stunning views.
The ground staff have recently been working hard to recover from such a wet winter season and the work and effort have produced a fantastic course.
A great Pro, Craig Helliwell, who adjusts his training to the capabilities of his customers for great results. Even me. His staff are training to become pro's and are a great addition to his team, they are very approachable and happy to impart their knowledge thanks Liam and Aiden.

The club facilities have been enhanced with a new balcony where you can sit and enjoy the super food coming from the kitchen and well priced. DOB Catering have done a smashing job thanks to David (Chef), Emma (Manager) and Amy (Bar manager)

Not forgetting the clubs management team who have helped improve and adjust the clubs outlook and future, Neil and Paul.

Always make the effort to play here at least once per year... greens, fairways and tee boxes in immaculate condition every time I've visited with a very friendly welcome. Not the longest course but very tricky due to the undulations and tight fairways; the kind of layout you need to play a few times to get the hang of it with several blind tee shots.
