What a great golf course. Reminded me a lot of playing Kings Lynn, but in far better surroundings. The course is a real challenge, yet your ball always easily findable. The opening holes all along the river on a sunny real is quite tranquil. I was based in Yorkshire for 2 years on business, and played all of the courses in the area on twilight green fees. Alwoodly stands out as the best, but Moortown was rather dull. Ilkley was a real pleasure, so if you are organising a 2 or 3 course break up this way, Ilkley should be added without hesitation. Great seeing Monty's name on almost every board in the early eighties too.
