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.

Make no mistake, this course is not for beginners.

If you miss the fairway it's virtually impossible to find your ball and with the elevated nature of the course you get all seasons in one round including some pretty strong gusts of wind.

That said, if your I'm control of your game it's a very satisfying course to challenge yourself on and you can pick up some low scores on some of the shorter par 4s and some easily reachable par 3s.

I'll be back again once I've got a bit more accuracy off the tee.

Good course, leave the driver on most holes take an iron if you find the heather you're dead. Good layout of challenging holes, enjoyable course
