Welcome to Scarthingwell Golf Course




Scarthingwell Golf Course is set in tranquil, rural surroundings between Tadcaster and Sherburn in Elmet. It offers an enjoyable 18 hole, 6631 yards, par 72 course and has become well established since its opening in 1990. The course provides a fair test for golfers of all abilities, as well as gaining a reputation for its friendly and informal atmosphere. Scarthingwell welcomes members, guests and visitors.



The Course is owned and managed by members of the Pick family who developed the golf course 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 two colleagues, John works closely with the owners in maintaining the excellent standard of the course.
