Skipton Golf Club
Skipton Golf Club, founded in 1893, is nestled amongst the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on the edge of the historic town of Skipton. Golfers will find themselves captivated by magnificent views of Sharphaw, Crookrise and Embsay Crag.
Visitors and members alike are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome from club staff and our long standing PGA Professional, Peter Robinson. You can enjoy good Yorkshire hospitality in our comfortable and spacious clubhouse. The extensive menu of home cooked food and the well- stocked bar are great compliments to the stunning long distance views over the Yorkshire countryside.
The course continues to win accolades for its presentation from both members and visitors thanks to an ongoing program of development and improvements over the last few years. Visitors continue to return year after year to enjoy the challenge that the course offers, many of whom have enjoyed our successful Open Events.
Since the move to the present site in 1896, Skipton has matured into one of the finest courses in the North of England and continues to improve under the control and stewardship of Ian Brown and his team. Visitors never fail to be impressed by the beauty of Skipton’s setting and the challenge that the course presents. From the seemingly innocuous opening Par 3 1st Hole to the challenge of Skipton’s very own “Amen Corner” comprising 14, 15 and 16, the course offers golfers of every standard a test of their golfing skills.
Once you have played Skipton for the first time, you will join the many hundreds of golfers who return year after year.
