Lovely course overlooking the stunning scenery of Ilkley Moor. Short course but being on the side of a hill with some puff inducing fairways it is a fair test. Quite a few greens have drop offs at the back so correct club selection into the greens makes a good score. Bad choices will ruin a card. Greens good for this time of year and overall the course was in excellent condition. Unfortunately the signature 17th is only a very short pitch to a temp green because of problems with trees around the green. Its a pity because it looks a challenging par 3. The club house is good and staff friendly. We shall go back and play the course again when the 17th is back up and running. Score 80

A really nice place- course is very hilly but the layout is good and accessible for occasional golfers . Some brilliant views even on a cloudy day. 17th hole is really pretty. Definitely worth a visit- and good value

I have played here before, it's a lovely course with gorgeous views.

The greens and fairways were in great condition especially after all of the recent heavy rain.

The walkways and other rough ground were very wet and muddy in places but it has rained very heavily recently.

I would play again.

Don't let the distance fool you. This is hilly and often you find yourself hitting uphill making short holes deceptively long. However the holes are really interesting and if you hire their individual buggies that are really adapted mobility scooters you will not stop laughing. Better these than walk trust me!

Course in good nick and almost deserted when we were there. Gives you a chance to build your confidence and get a score but still challenging

Would definitely go again!

Myself and my wife had a great May Day bank holiday round. the course was in a lovely condition with fairways cut well and surrounding areas well groomed. The young pro was very welcoming and a well stocked shop took my wife's interest. After a full round with honours shared we enjoyed a beer outside looking over towards the Cow & Calf rocks at Ilkley. All in all definitely a day we will repeat.
