Thirsk & Northallerton is a classic parkland course, with the most recent expansion completed in 1997. It is set in an area of rich agricultural land, and offers superb views of the Hambleton Hills to the east and Wensleydale to the west. The 6532 yard Par 72 course offers a rich variety of holes and a challenging yet fair test – whatever your handicap. Playing the course demands constant attention as a combination of tree lined fairways and diverse rolling terrain places a greater emphasis on precision golf, rather than distance. The greens have a reputation for their excellent condition.

A practice area is available, including chipping, putting and sand practice zones.

 

 

Thirsk & Northallerton Golf Club – Hole 1
cbf7e456-141c-11e3-8ab8-bc305bd9eec9

A difficult opener which plays its full length. A drive on the fairway will leave a good iron or even a wood

to a two tiered green. A par will satisfy anyone here.

The perfect drive on this hole is down the right half of the fairway, as a thick hedge lines the left side. This will leave the player two options; either playing a medium iron short of the ditch, leaving a simple pitch or a full blooded 3 wood through a bottle neck with a lateral water hazard tight right. Beware all shots tend to kick right when approaching the green.

Correct club selection is essential here. An accurate tee shot is required to this long slightly elevated and undulating green. Miss the green and you could be left with a very tricky pitch shot.

The ideal line here is over the left of the two trees guarding the entrance to the fairway so that your ball finishes on the right side of the fairway. This gives you a better line into the green, especially if the hole has been cut behind the bunker that protects the left and back of the green.

Long hitters should aim for the right side of the fairway to give a good line into the green. The average golfer shouldn’t be tempted to attempt to take too much off the corner of the dog leg with their second shots as the trees go further than you think.

Accuracy off the tee is essential on this hole with a tight landing area on the elbow of the dogleg. A long, narrow green means that you need to be accurate with your approach shots as well.

This is usually a straightforward hole but the wind can play a big part. The ideal line is just left of the fairway bunker. If you wish you could take an iron off this tee as it should easily be reached in two. The green slopes left to right, but always attack the flag.

This hole requires a drive from a blind tee. A drive anywhere on the fairway should be followed by a middle iron short of a wide ditch. Only the accurate long hitters can attempt to reach this in two as a ditch across the front of the front of the green awaits the miss-hit shot. Out of bounds all along the right adds to the interest.

Strategy is essential on this hole where accuracy is more important than distance. A shot down the right side of the fairway will leave you a clear shot past a large tree onto a two tiered green. Don’t hit your tee shot too far down the right or you’ll end up in the pond.
