Welcome to Scarthingwell Golf Course
Scarthingwell Golf Course lies 4 miles south of Tadcaster, adjacent to the A162 on the edge of the Vale of York and close to the site of the infamous Battle of Towton.
An easy-walking 18-hole course, Scarthingwell is set in tranquil rural surroundings and has become well established since its opening in 1990, providing a fair test for golfers of all abilities, as well as gaining a reputation for its friendly and informal atmosphere.
The Course is owned and managed by members of the Pick family who
developed the site from jointly-owned land in the early 1990s and still live near by, having farmed in the area since 1925. Each of the partners plays an active role in the day-to-day operation of the Golf Course and at least one partner is usually on-site at most times of the day.
The Head Greenkeeper at Scarthingwell is John Waite, who has held the position since 1995. Together with his three assistants, John works closely with the owners in maintaining the excellent standard of the course.
From 1st November 2013 our winter wheel regulations will be implemented; whereby only trolleys fitted with hedgehog wheels wil be allowed on the course. This policy greatly increases the ability to maintain the course in good condition during the winter months and through to the early part of next season.
