The Golf Course


The course at Drax was opened in 1990 as a 9-hole course, then with the addition in 2010 of 3 new holes, it became a 12-hole course that can support a full 18-hole round with ease.


Although the course is situated adjacent to the UK’s largest renewable power station, it is set in a beautiful woodland area which means during a round, you will see a variety of wildlife.


The course is maintained by a team of greenkeepers under the direction of our Head Greenkeeper, who has made great improvements to the course since his arrival.


The layout of the course makes it manageable for a beginner, ideal for the casual golfer, but still offers a difficult challenge even for the more skilful players because of its narrow fairways and abundance of trees and hazards.
