In the area Selby will be the driest 18 hole Trad Club course with Ferrybridge the driest (& cheapest) in Yorkshire & arguably, the N of England. Built relatively recently but has excellent fairways & greens though only 9 holes with 18 tees...... it may be mandatory mats on fairways. Its built on 5ft of Magnesium Limestone & is like playing links. I played it in Feb this year in it's first meet with Leeds & District Union of Golf Clubs & everyone was staggered as all their courses, Selby & ours excepted, were closed due to being waterlogged. We saw not a puddle & came off with clean shoes & trousers. Truly impressive!! Though not easy to locate...... you need GPS & their post code as access is almost through the Power Station.Hi All,
Along a similar theme to some current threads, I’m looking for Yorkshire course recommendations for December, so ideally good drainage etc. I’ve a friend visiting from Kent and keen to get a couple of rounds in!
I play at Woolley Park which is normally v good in the winter months, but, keen to try somewhere new too. Ganton is an obvious contender, but, a little far (and difficult! ), as hoping for somewhere within 45mins of Leeds. Hopefully between West / South Yorkshire, there will be some good options. Fulford, together with Hillsborough and Rotherham have been mentioned amongst others.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks
