Golf courses in Yorkshire

East or West, North or South, there’s no escaping the fact that Yorkshire is a fantastic part of the country to visit, whether you want city life or natural beauty. So it is that golfing aficionados will find any kind of challenge they might look for in this region.

 

The two most prominent regulars in top 100 lists are probably Alwoodley and Ganton. Alwoodley is a world famous inland venue offering heathland golf at its most challenging and enjoyable. It’s just five miles north of Leeds, so there are plenty of other things to occupy your time once you’ve downed your clubs for the day. But if city life is not your thing, head to North Yorkshire to give Ganton a try. A sandy combination of links and heathland, the bunkers here can be particularly punishing, but being only ten miles inland from Scarborough, you’re close enough to get a bag of chips on the prom if this former Ryder Cup course has got the better of you.

 

Whichever part of Yorkshire you try, there’s heath, links and parkland courses for everybody, and a fantastic Yorkshire welcome is the icing on the cake.
