Adjacent to The Fairfax Arms is Ampleforth Golf Club – A challenging 9 hole layout in the grounds of Gilling Castle.
The course is accessible by foot from the Fairfax, with the clubhouse and the first tee just along the lane.
About The Course
“The modern layout covers 9 holes of sloping parkland, with glorious views over the North York Moors from the long holes at the top of the hill. It is quite a tough walking course, with several holes along the valley sides, so a light carry-bag may be a good choice!
Many of the holes play much longer than they appear on the card, particularly the 1st and the 10th which are uphill, and generally played into wind.”
Pay and play at any time. For more details and prices see the golf club website.
