Keighley Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1904

Keighley Golf Club: Laid out along the banks of the River Aire on one side, and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal on the other, there is much to admire in this relatively short, parkland layout at Keighley. Mature trees and rapidly developing saplings provide definition to each hole, while lush grass beyond the fairways ensures that there is a price to pay for shots which stray into the semi-rough.

While Keighley's parkland charm, complemented by the meandering river, may present an easy-going, gentle outing at first glance, there are some holes that will more seriously test and examine your all round golf game. Many players would elect the good-length par-4 17th as their favourite hole. Longer par-4's at the 1st, 5th, 6th and 15th will all require good length off the tee if the green is to be hit in regulation; even then fairway woods and long irons are often needed to reach the target.

Keighley, together with the golf clubs at Ilkley and Bingley St Ives, form an attractive triumvirate of courses on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
