Description
Ilkley Golf Club is generally considered to be one of the finest golf clubs in Yorkshire, both in terms of beauty and as a test of golf.

However golfers must not be fooled by its beauty, as the River Wharfe is an ever-present threat for the first seven holes of this tree-lined course.

With a par of 69 and standard scratch of 70, this 6262 yard course is a great deal more difficult than it might first appear. Testament to this is the fact that the course record for a professional is only 64 and was set in 2000 by honorary life member Colin Montgomerie, one of the best golfers in the world.

An excellent course, top class catering and a warm Yorkshire welcome will ensure a visit to Ilkley Golf Club will be extremely enjoyable.

Top 100 golf course

Founded in 1890 Ilkley is the 3rd oldest golf course in Yorkshire, measuring 6262 from the medal tees, A 'nice' course rather than anything too brutal. Typical Yorkshire countryside surrounds the course, and once out on the course the view of the Moors is prectacular on a sunny day. The course is blessed with many fine holes, the most memorable are the openers adjacent to the river.
Ilkley was probably an absolute brute before the onset of modern equipment, distance balls and square-headed drivers. In fact, the whole club and town seems to be (in a nice way) in a 1960's 'Heartbeat' style time-warp!
Play it for the scenery, the friendly welcome in the clubhouse, the teas & scones and the knowledge that you are following in the footsteps of Colin Montgomerie and Make James who learnt their trade here. Don't come here expecting three figure scores on a 7000 yard beast of a course, just enjoy the day!
The greens were better when I played than when the previous reviewer did. The bunkers are OK I guess (didn't really go in them!) and the fairways are a pleasure to hit off.
