If you are very new to the game, this is a must play course, it is quite short as from the yellow tees it is 5999 yards however the length is backed up by tight fairways which are hard to hit, however it is a good test for all abilities.

What a fun course to play. The scenery is amazing on a sunny day and the course lay out complex but fun. Very narrow in parts, but that adds to the drama right? My only criticism is that there were a lot of pitch marks unrepared on the greens.

Perhaps some better attention by the members would help

For January it was dry no plugged shots , the course is varied and not overly long , greens in good condition for the time of year , it was very enjoyable we had heard it was a tight course but we did not think so the fairways were not too narrow , I never like finishing on a par 3 but that's a minor point overall really enjoyable.we will be back pretty soon .thanks

Very good days golf in an excellent setting with beautiful scenery and challenging holes..

One very minor criticism is that a couple of the winter tees were uneven.

Really enjoyed the round and can’t wait to return .

With my regular golf partner in Teeside and me in Wakefield, we have tried quite a few courses in the middle. Not sure why we hadn't picked up on this one before but we will definitely be back even though it is a bit of a fiddly drive from the A1. Very friendly staff and local golfers made us welcome. The course was in great nick with greens running true. It's a tight course with wayward drives punished and prior knowledge of holes would definitely help with many shots, In one or two areas the drives threaten other fairways and golfers and several of the par 3s are frustrating with trees allowing almost no direct route to the pin!! However a few frustrations didn't spoil a very enjoyable round of golf and visit here in general. Nice views of Yorkshire countryside and the river at places as well. We will be back but sadly might have to wait to the spring now.

Course in excellent condition, even after the current hot weather the greens were in very good nick.

Every hole is different and brings its own challenges, really makes you think about course management.

Very enjoyable, thank you!

I decided to play at Aldwark due to the bad weather preventing our group playing at our home course which was closed. Despite its location close to a river and being low lying the ground was surprisingly dry and unfrozen. The club professional who I spoke to when I arrived was very friendly and helpful. The course was virtually empty which was a surprise. At the price I paid the round was a bargain.

This is a real gem! It is not overly long but the layout makes this one of the best but hardest rounds I have had. Trees in the middle of the fairway, obscured greens, water and bunkers. Hit straight and precisely you will do well. Stray and you will probably find the ball but trees will block your path to the green. The 14 th hole is just terrifying with little fairway to hit and water running along one side and trees the other and so narrow .

Please don't be put off as this is a cracker. Just expect a tough round.

The pro was great. Down to earth and welcoming. We managed to pay £15 off tee off times and £15 for a buggy which was great value

Just go. We will play this again in a heartbeat!

first time on this course, but found it to be in great condition, tight fairways, which made it a great challenge, and totally enjoyed it. will certainly come back, the signature 18th is a brilliant hole to finish on.

The course was in lovely condition and as we were out at 8.00am there was nobody to hold us up. There are some very interesting holes but there are a couple which almost share the same fairway so when the course is busy this would hold up play.

There was nobody in the pro shop when we arrived so we went out at 7.50am. I would have thought that if the first tee time was 8.00 there should be somebody there by at least 7.45am

Last played Aldwark 2 years ago and will be going back very soon after today's round.

Every hole was in great condition,no hold ups and was a good challenge.

Played with 2 lower handicappers and had a great laugh albeit at my expense on a couple of holes!

Enjoyed it that much we have enquirer about membership.

Played there a number of times and a good course for all abilities.

However weather conditions of late have left the course in not great condition.

Fairways not been cut for a while so ball wasn't running and greens extremely patchy a bubbly .

For high handicappers such as myself this course is great!

The Par 5's are challengi g and there is one par 3 that into the wind was tough today.

Get an early tee time and you have the course to yourself great value for money!
