What the club says: Each hole is very individual offering challenges to golfers of all abilities.

Whilst many fairways are tree lined you are unlikely to lose your ball if you stray into them as the grass is kept short. Greens have true putting surfaces playable all year round.

The two loops of nine holes each start and return to the clubhouse and numerous points on the course allow you views over Wakefield and the surrounding countryside.

Mixed Views

Thoroughly enjoyed the course - great mix of holes and in great condition. Quite surprised by the actions of a group of members in a mixed 4-ball. They were very slow and let 2 members in front of us play through after 1 hole. We too were in a 2 ball yet they held us up all they way round the front 9 and grumpily/reluctantly let us through on the 10th when 1 went to use the toilet. Despite thanking them they barely uttered a word and looked at us visitors with contempt. Comical really!!

Excellent course in very good condition. Really enjoyed the par 3`s which were very playable, loved the 2nd hole as it was deceptively difficult to work out the yardage. The tee shot on 5 is very tricky for a player that likes to draw the ball and there are a few water hazards which can easily catch you out, particularly the approach to the 6th green.

I had the privilege of playing as a guest of a friend who is a member.
Previously I have only played at council run courses, which are of a really good standard, however when you play at a facility like this, the step up in grounds keeping is really noticeable. The fairways are cut really low and the greens are like snooker tables! Fantastic course, really warm welcome - can't wait to go back!

area, the greens were very good fast and true, the fairways were also prill.

Course was in very good condition with greens that were reasonably quick. My only complaint was that the sand in some of the bunkers was very compacted making splash shots nigh on impossible, certainly for higher handicap players.

The course is reasonable test and whilst not the longest around, it does require you to think your way around.

Played the course on a Rabbits Open in September.
One of the best courses I've played. Challenging, varied holes, tough par 5's, fantastically lush fairways and deep, fluffy rough.
The greens were recently dressed so the sand made them quite slow and difficult to read but that's a timing issue rather than a condition issue.
I would play there again in a hearbeat.
