Richmond (Yorks) Golf Club, situated just outside the historic town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, is a real gem. Not overly long, it’s still a great test for golfers, thanks in no small part to its superb undulating greens. It's an absolute pleasure to play at any time of the year, a cracking little golf course in a fabulous rolling parkland setting.
The Club was founded in 1892 and has been played at its current site, Bend Hagg, since 1904 after members decamped from the old racecourse half a mile away.
Nearby Richmond is steeped in history and a hub for holiday-makers touring the Yorkshire Dales. But golfers keen to explore the surrounding area should leave enough time for a meal and a drink in the sun lounge overlooking the 18th green to soak up the tranquil atmosphere and take in the views, which change so gloriously with the seasons.
