Located less than half a mile outside of Harrogate Town centre it's hard to believe you are so close to an urban life when on the course. This is a class establishment, clubhouse first class as was the communication and courtesy extended by the club, Catherine was amazing.
Straight away as you step onto the first tee complex you get a sense of an impressive course. Hole after hole tree lined with amazing mature pines, well manicured and maintained. The green complexes offer hidden severe slopes, certainly any local knowledge is an advantage. The course has a lot of lovely holes, but for me the 17th is my personal favourite a par 5, proper double dogleg provides a true 3 shot hole despite measuring only 510 yards, an architectural masterpiece. The closing 18th down a tree lined tunnel with a water Brook running directly in front of the green (same as no 9) has surely spoiled many a score.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience one I would recommend to anyone finding themselves in the North Yorkshire area, you won't regret it.
