Ilkley Golf Club.
One of the finest golf clubs in Yorkshire, both in terms
of beauty and as a test of golf. Ilkley Golf Club is where Honorary Life Member Colin Montgomerie learnt his golf. It is also proud to have another Ryder Cup Captain, Mark James, as an Honorary Life Member.
Nestled in the beautiful Wharfe Valley with the famous Moor as a backdrop, Ilkley is one of the most picturesque courses in the country.
However golfers must not be fooled by its beauty, as the River Wharfe is an ever-present threat for the first seven holes of this tree-lined course.
With a par of 69 and a standard scratch of 70, the 6276-yard course is a great deal more difficult than it might first appear. Testament to this is the fact that the course record for a professional is 64 and was set by Colin Montgomerie in 2000, when he was one of the finest golfers in the world.
