We booked this course as we were members several years ago before we moved house. We should have suspected something amiss as we arrived at the pro shop to collect our cards etc the place was empty bar some second hand clubs on sale for £1 each! We only played 4 holes before deciding after another of our putts changed direction dramatically to leave for another course nearby. We explained why we were leaving to the guy in the empty pro shop. He replied that they were having trouble keeping up the watering of the course due to the fact they weren’t allowed to have sprinklers, water taps, pipes etc. as it was public land the course was on. I hope this is just a blip due to the hot weather and not the demise of a once brilliant course only several years ago!!

He would not play this course again.

The Greens were the worst I have experienced in playing golf , no grass and they have not been watered you could see up to 5 old holes on each green

I've play Baildon in Opens about twice a year for the last 5 years. In wet & windy conditions it's more of an assault course than a golf course, but if you can play well here you'll play well anywhere. You'll only score well if you keep it out of the rough. (This year our party was 12 and none put a ball onto the 2nd green, one of the best pars 3s I've played#.
This year the greens have returned to those expected of a moorland course and were fair if a little slow, even for a moorland green.
There's not a single tree on the course so you're exposed to the elements particularly on the front 9 but less so on the back where it's thought to be a bit easier. #As my colleague describes it - 15 holes uphill and 2 down).
It's a unique experience, not for the fainthearted, and I love it!!!

As this course is high up with no adverse weather protection you need half decent weather. Sadly I had to abandon my round after 7 holes because the weather was so bad it was practically impossible to play.
