SCAR­CROFT

Golf Monthly - - Gm Promotion For Ticket Bookings And Further Event -

The area north of Leeds is home to some ex­cep­tional golf and Scar­croft more than holds its own. There is a stern open­ing stretch with the first two holes pro­tected by ditches, be­fore some re­lief at the pretty par-3 5th. This is im­me­di­ately taken away by an en­counter with the de­mand­ing SI1 6th. Two strong par 4s take you to the turn and the charm­ing half­way house, and the back nine is prob­a­bly even more en­joy­able with the long, snaking, wa­ter-pro­tected 14th among the best holes. Some­times over­looked, Scar­croft is yet an­other de­light that is more than worth its mod­est green fee. Stats: par 71, 6,456 yards W: scar­croft­golf­club.co.uk GF: £45/£55wd per round/day, £55/£65we
