Today we were at Shipley Golf Club, Set amidst a wonderful wooded valley on the outskirts of Bingley, the course is the creation of the renowned architect Dr Alister Mackenzie.
Stretching across the rolling valley floor of Beckfoot this is a highly pleasant environment of traditional parkland providing golfers of any standard with a test of their skill and accuracy. Unusually for a course of this standard there are six Par 3 holes one of which, the 7th, is the Course's signature hole. A testing downhill, mid to long iron shot with the babbling Harden Beck both to the left and rear
of the small green ready to engulf the errant shot. Seven tough Par 4's and 5 medium Par 5's make up the rest of the challenge with mature Birch and Oak trees lining the fairways, and several ditches and ponds to test the shot makers skill.
A test for even the most established player. Thankfully, four more teeing options make this utterly stunning and uniquely situated course enjoyable for every level of golfer. The players rated this course “Top Class” and would love to see this course again on the list for golf pairs 2023!!!
Best shot was Alan Burgess who striped a driver off the 1st hole to put it down the centre off the white pots for the win!!
Well done to Chris Payne who put it to 6ft on the 14th par 3, from 172 yards with a 6 iron!! Very impressive!!
Best Dressed goes to Chris Lennox who set the course alight with his flame pants!!!
