The natural contours of the North Yorkshire landscape provide the perfect setting for Romanby's championship standard golf course. Attractive lakes and the River Wiske present challenging water hazards as well as providing homes for a variety of water fowl, including ducks, coots and migrant swans which make regular visits to Romanby.

The Romanby course was designed by Will Adamson, with greens constructed to USGA specification and large teeing areas around 400 square metres in size. The course is not overly long, measuring 6,663 yards from the back tees and 6,405 from the yellow tees (ladies 5,635 yards), and provides a challenging but fair test for all categories of golfer.

Each hole has a character of its own and contributes to a varied and truly memorable round of golf. However, players should beware of the false sense of security which the gentle early holes can produce. The test of skill heightens as you approach Romanby's own Amen Corner - a trio of challenging holes consisting of the par 3 eleventh over the lake, hole twelve, possibly one of the longest par 5's you'll ever play, and the par 4 thirteenth, ranked stroke index 1.

The tranquil parkland setting then takes over to calm you into the final stages and the highest point on the course is reached on the fifteenth green. The eighteenth fairway is bisected at around 230 yards by the River Wiske, leaving you faced with a critical decision: play long, or play safe. On completion of your round, a warm welcome awaits you in Romanby's popular Clubhouse.
