Opened in 1921 the current golf course was designed by the renowned golf course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie, and is tucked away in a beautiful, mature wooded valley at Beckfoot just outside the town of Bingley in West Yorkshire.

Shipley has long been known as one of the best golf courses in the Yorkshire area and, with a continuous programme of investment in the golf course and facilities, we believe we will maintain this status.

The Shipley Golf Club is a regular venue for the Yorkshire County and Bradford Union Fixtures, whilst also being the home of the Bradford and District Union of Golf Clubs. 

Set amidst a wonderful wooded valley on the outskirts of Bingley, the course is the creation of the renowned architect Dr Alister Mackenzie. Stretching across the rolling valley floor of Beckfoot this is a highly pleasant environment of traditional parkland providing golfers of any standard with a test of their skill and accuracy.

Unusually for a course of this standard there are six Par 3 holes one of which, the 7th, is the Course’s signature hole. A testing downhill, mid to long iron shot with the babbling Harden Beck both to the left and rear of the small green ready to engulf the errant shot. Seven tough Par 4’s and 5 medium Par 5’s make up the rest of the challenge with mature Birch and Oak trees lining the fairways, and several ditches and ponds to test the shot makers skill.

The Shipley Golf Club is proud of the standard of its facilities and whatever the time of year you can be sure to find firm fairways, true greens and an idyllic environment. Much of Dr MacKenzie’s original design is evident with subtly sloping, cleverly guarded greens with narrow approaches a hallmark of his work used to reward the golfer for skilful and accurate play. At a little over 6200 yards do not be fooled into thinking you are in for an easy time here.
