A Visitors Guide to Harrogate Golf Courses

Fancy a golf trip away in Harrogate – not sure where to play, what time or day of the week, how much? We’ve got you covered. See below for our visitor guide to playing golf in Harrogate. 

The oldest golf club in Harrogate dating back to 1892. Visitor green fees from £50 per person. Visitor tee times from 1030am daily.

Featuring one 18-hole course (Par 69, 6198 yards), large chipping area, putting green and an indoor studio. Best to book via the website. The course is open from 1st April to 31st October. Standard golf attire dress code.

There is a restaurant and bar on site, please note cards only, cash is not accepted. 

Rudding Park offers two courses, a driving range and putting green. Hawtree 18-holes (Par 72, 6727 yards) and a more relaxed Repton 6-hole course if you’re short of time.

Open all year round with green fees from just £9 for Repton and £25 for Hawtree. Standard dress code for Hawtree course but no dress code for Repton. Buggies are available.

Great option for more relaxed sociable golf with superb bar and dining options on site. Rudding Park Spa also available for ultimate relaxation.

Oakdale Golf Club established in 1914 offers one 18-hole (Par71, 6477 yards) course and a simulator (£10 per half hour, £20 per hour – book in advance). Note there is no driving range so the simulator is a good option to warm up. While the course can be quite forgiving, it still commands respect with its fair share of bunkers, water hazards, rough and spinneys lying in wait.

Visitor Tee times from 9:30 am from £60 per person. Thursdays and Monday afternoons are the quietest times. The only course that is within walking distance of town. Call 01423567162 to book your tee times.

Established in 1904 and offering one 18-hole (Par 72, 6404 yards), Pannal Golf Course is for the more advanced player. The most expensive option at £120 per person, Pannal can be a tricky course especially in the wind. 

Book via the website or phone for larger groups. Pannal also offers a simulator at £7 per half hour. 

Avoid competition days on Tuesdays and Saturdays, certainly a good option for the more competitive players.

Located between Harrogate and Wetherby, Spofforth Golf Course welcomes pay and play golfers. From £18 per person, a four ball would be just £72 offering great value for the Par 72, 5640 yard 18 hole course. 

There is a driving range and a clubhouse offering light refreshments.

Book via the website, certain times are restricted to 9 holes.
