Keighley Golf Club
This hidden gem, awarded a Silver medal by Golf Monthly, nestles in the picturesque Aire Valley less than an hour away from the business centres of Leeds and Bradford.
The beautiful parkland course at Keighley Golf Club has developed over the last 100 years into a true test of golf. Well-defined fairways and superb greens are complemented by mature and recently planted trees that provide definition for every hole.
A round at Keighley Golf Club offers a challenge for the most accomplished golfer but one that the club golfer can also face without being overpowered. Superb food is served by our friendly staff in the stylish conservatory with stunning views over the course. As a choice for an event, from an elegant celebration or wedding to a corporate promotion to a friendly 4-ball, Keighley Golf Club is unparalleled.
Keighley’s course has been maturing and developing for over a century and today offers a thorough test for the most accomplished golfer, as well as a challenge which the high – handicapper can face without fear of being overpowered.
Long par fours such as the 1st, 5th, 6th and 15th all require good length off the tee if the green is to be hit in regulation and even then fairway woods and long irons are often needed to reach the target. Not that the par three holes offer an easy respite from a genuine test of skill and judgement. As early as the 2nd, the player needs to negotioate an intimidating, overhanging oak on the left and a series of develish bunkers on the right – often into the prevailing wind – while the 16th requires good length and pin-point accuracy, as its stroke index of eight confirms.
All the beauty that Mother Nature can provide in a typical parkland setting is harnessed to make the course at Keighley Golf Club an absorbing challenge. Mature trees and rapidly developing saplings provide definition and individuality to every hole, while the lush valley bottom grass ensures that there is always a price to pay for shots which stray into the semi-rough.
While Keighley’s parkland charm, perfectly complemented by the meandering River Aire, is a picture of rural serenity, behind that gentle exterior there lies a serious examination. It is one on which the skills of three Yorkshire Champions – Arnold Fell (1931), Roger Mitchell (1975) and Phil Wood (1990/94) – have been honed and tempered. It is perhaps a measure of the course that Wood, Yorkshire Captain from 1994 to 1996, should elect the par-four 17th – stroke index 6 – as his favourite hole and nominate it as ‘one of the most difficult and dangerous finishing holes in Yorkshire golf’. Praise indeed, but then Keighley is a course which offers a tantalising ‘best hole’ challenge, especially for the visiting player.
