Bracken Ghyll Golf Club - Addingham

Addingham Bracken Ghyll Golf Club, set in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, is a course both challenging to the keen golfer and a pleasure to the casual player. National Club Golfer describes the course as follows:"With two distinct halves, the 5600 yard layout is an intriguing mix of the old and the new, with a common theme of undulating parkland which is surprisingly mature for its age. A warm welcome and immaculate fairways and greens are reasons why so many Visiting Parties choose Bracken Ghyll on a regular basis".
