The course hugs the river, heavily lined with mature trees, there are only a couple of slopes / elevation changes of note and few hidden obstacles, it is all there in front of you and isn't a really difficult course. As such it is an easy walk and ideal for visitors. Anyone need ring a buggy should ring ahead as... More

Colin Montgomerie, who sort of started out here, once said it was a jewel of a course. He was right. It's beautiful. The staff in the bar are great and the food and drink are excellent.

The setting for this course is magnificent. Whereas most courses are tending to be fast and running, this was green and lush. It was in excellent condition, so good in fact that you must think it doesn't get much traffic. We played an uninterrupted round in 3h 15m. Made to feel very welcome by the excellent professional. Definitely one to... More

Having not played a round of golf for several weeks I suddenly found myself hankering after a game one Saturday afternoon recently. I thought to myself where is there a nice course within twenty minutes or so drive (my desire for a game wasn't so strong as to make me want a long journey). The answer was obvious as Ilkley...

I recently visited Ilkley as part of a large group of visitors from Woodsome Hall and we had the most fantastic time on a superb course. We were travelling by coach and I had an organisational melt-down day. When I arrived I found I had left my putter at home. The professional could not have been more helpful offering me... More

From the minute we arrived, a party of 8 from Derbyshire, we were struck by the welcome from all personnel at Ilkley Golf Club. The reception from the Club professional was first class; he dealt with all our requirements most efficiently. I notice he has been at the Club for more than 30 years; that in itself tells the story.... More

It was a neighbour's 80th surprise birthday party on a Sunday lunchtime. The ambience was excellent, the surroundings beautiful, the course looked great, the staff friendly, the service good, the food really lovely and everyone was made to feel welcome and a good time was guaranteed for all. I would heartily recommend the club for a function.

Ilkley was recommended to me many years ago, but I hadn't had the chance to play it until last week. I'm now regretting those wasted years. From first tee to 18th green, this is a course of outstanding beauty. The greens were in excellent condition, true and tricky in places (15th!) The river frames the first few holes wonderfully. If...

I play a lot of golf and have been fortunate enough to have played Ilkley on a few occasions. It's not the cheapest but the course is always in brilliant condition. Best course in the area and there are a lot of good tracks in these parts
