Hidden Gem

"Hidden Gem" may be an overused expression when it comes to describing golf courses, but it definitely applies to Knaresborough. It's easy to miss the understated entrance, but for those who know what lies at the end of that tree-lined approach, it's a different matter.

Laid out over beautiful, gently undulating North Yorkshire countryside, Knaresborough's parkland golf course features stunning scenery, many mature trees, and beautifully tended fairways and greens.

Now approaching its centenary year, Knaresborough Golf Course retains much of its original charm, but we've not stood still. More recent changes included the introduction of signature holes such as the par five 8th, passed on the entrance road, and delivering one of the club's most iconic views. Elsewhere there's the increasingly testing 13th, a dog leg left demanding an accurate, well placed tee shot. Then there's the 14th hole, a long par four presenting a large, but testing, undulating green. There truly isn't a hole at Knaresborough that doesn't offer a golfing challenge to keep Members and Visitors coming back for more.

The Club has excellent practice and warm up facilities available to both members and visitors, including large practice ground, putting and chipping as well as driving net. The Pro shop also features a computerised swing studio to make sure all your coaching and club fitting needs can be addressed.
