What the club says: Woolley Park Golf Club is one of West Yorkshire’s premier clubs, offering both an 18 hole and a 9 hole course plus a putting green and open air practice area. Situated in beautiful, rolling countryside 7 miles from both Barnsley and Wakefield, it is also only 3 miles from J38 of the M1 and within easy reach of Leeds and Sheffield.

Reviewed Jul 6 2021 by Alan B - rated 1 out of 5
The entire round was ruined by the greenstaff who were cutting and dressing greens and did not move aside to allowi play and therefore we waited on the first 6 holes for them to clear and allow groups in front to play
When we asked if this was to carry on for the round wre told if we didn't like to pick up and leave
Later when asked the way to next tee the response for greenstaff was probably
It must rate as one of the most expensive courses in the area with the rudest staff I have ever encountered
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE COURSE TO ANYBODY

Enjoyable day, although my golf was rusty after lockdown.
Course was in good condition apart from hole 3 where we were still on a temporary after last year's vandalism of the proper green. As always the price has increased again for visitors, and I do not think it is worth ?30 a round compared to better courses in the area.

Holes 2 & 3 were on poor temporary greens as the originals had been vandalised. It will be next year before they recover. Only had a £3 reduction off the green fee to £25 for this round, as compensation. They have let the rough grow this year which made it more of a test which was good, but it is still expensive to play here as a visitor and the members are not too friendly.

Challenging course, unfortunately two of the first three greens were on temps (not mentioned when booking or paying). Other than that, excellent course, make sure you don't go in the rough!! Will definitely play again

Lovely course and warm welcome

Our first round at this quote local course. We were greeted by friendly staff at 7am and had coffee in the clubhouse before an 8am tee off in first light. What a treat the course is, quite open but some interesting dog legs and bits of water around. We thoroughly enjoyed the play and then had some excellent food in the clubhouse afterwards. Holes 1 and 18 were my favourites.

Enjoy a round here, friendly club and staff and the course was in great condition even though they were preparing the greens for winter.
Food and drink is always good to finish a round.

Must Visit

Only opened 1999 so in golfing terms fairly new, however the course looks older with mature trees. Difficult to fault the course, excellent fairways which are fairly generous with equally excellent greens. The clubhouse and staff make everyone feel welcome and the food is of good quality. The club also has an academy course 9 holes off blue and yellow tees which is mainly par3 with the odd par4.
Can fully recommend a visit.
