Terrific day out

I have played Bingley St Ives a number of times over the last 15 years or so. It enjoys a a picturesque setting as part of a wider private estate with great views and provides a testing course for golfers of all standards. The staff are welcoming to visitors with services safely delivered in these Covid-19 times. The course was in good condition although one or two of the greens were a touch worse for wear this is understandable at this time of year. We were lucky enough to enjoy brilliant autumn weather which added a great deal to the golfing.experience. Our foursome were very much of the view that we would come back to play this course again.

Really enjoyed the course. The only improvement would be better signage around the course as sometimes difficult to find where next tee was. Especially the 4th but will be back

11th best in Yorkshire?!

Top courses of the world site rank this course as the 11th best in Yorkshire which is clearly wrong. It would be lucky to be in the top 20.

Parkland for the first 8 holes, then course gets really good on the 9th, after the 14th goes back to parkland.

If you are in the area you’ll find baildon cheaper and better. There’s nothing much wrong with Bingley as such but many holes you’ve seen before don’t make it that interesting. If it wasn’t for the middle part of the course it wouldn’t be in the top 50 in Yorkshire.

Also I am reliably informed the club links itself to Alistair McKenzie yet he didn’t have anything to do with the course, instead it was Charles McKenzie.

Worth £15 hot deal, anything more than £20 is a little over the top.

Challenging moorland/parkland course in great condition

Great course - nice varied and challenging layout.
Pro shop staff very welcoming.
Tee boxes very tidy and greens in great condition and fast.
4 ball in front not very aware of 1-ball (me) and 2 2-balls behind, so I added a 2-hole loop, playing holes 12 and 13 twice, as no one following me, in order to space out play.
I wouldn’t definitely play again when I visit this area.

Enjoyable round on great course

Always like Bingley St Ives it is a challenging yet enjoyable course. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. My only negative on the day was that a single golfer was pushing the two ball behind us and our 4 ball was right behind the 4 ball in front as a result the round was hurried somewhat

Magnificent inland links

This was my first time around this course on the recommendation of friends. It's a stunner. A real, grown up golf course. Although long on paper, the links-like terrain means there is a lot of run on the ball, so the longer holes do not feel massive. The course has two different feels - more parkland at the bottom of the hill and distinctly heathland on top with heather rough on rocky outcrops. The course was in great condition and have the best greens I have played on in a long while - super quick but absolutely true - a real credit to the ground staff. This is a very true test of golf, probably favouring a golfer with a draw off the tee with more right to left holes than left to right. Brilliantly fun final hole (177 yards downhill) is the last in a long line of terrific holes. Loved it and will be back.

My favourite course

Whether you play this course in summer sunshine or on a damp winters day it will always reward you with stunning views and the most varied 18 holes anywhere within 50 miles. Sheltered Parkland, wild open heathered moorland, simply a wonderful test of your golfing skills and depending on the wind direction on the day good luck with your club selection on the 18th, one of the best finishing par 3's anywhere.

Hidden Gem

I have played Bingley (St Ives) several times - but not in the last decade. The course is as good now as it was then - plus there has been some noticable investment in landscaping, tee boxes, greens. The course was in first-rate condition.

The course has plenty of variety and - whether it trees, OOB, wispy long grass borders or moorland heather - the coruse rewards the accurate player and is punitive for the errant tee shot. I scored well by keeping my driver in the bag and favouring the accuracy of woods off the tees.

Loved the course and experience. Clubhouse bar wasn't open (Monday) but otherwise everything was perfect. Recommended.
