Agree with previous comments, course pretty good particularly the back nine. However the website is MAD! No information about the course, green fees, opening times etc etc!!

At a time when golf participation is waning, partly because it's viewed as a stuffy sport for white male tweed jacket wearers over 50, Spofforth is just what is needed. There is no pretentiousness or ego anywhere in sight. You just turn up and play...More

Spofforth pay and play golf course is a lovely course, with well maintained fairways and greens. At £10 for 9 holes or £15 for 18 it’s great value for money. 1st nine is flatter and less demanding but still a good challenge, then the back...More

This was my first proper nine holes of golf having played the Repton course at Rudding Park several times. It was perfect for a beginner. Wide fairways and very few bunkers. The greens were well maintained and it was quiet. As a novice it was...More

Turn up, pay £15 get started. Pretty good value all in all. The back 9 is more interesting. It's worth a visit.

If you're looking for something a little different try this one. A little unique on how it's run, but that doesn't mean its wrong. Don't expect a bar of fancy lounge - if all you need is good fairways reasonable greens and a challenge try...More
