We will be offering 5 and 7 day memberships but as yet no firm green fees have been set. With rounds of golf taking between 4 to 5 hours for 18 holes, this is putting people off joining a golf club, as time is at a premium these days, with work and family commitments. This will be an ideal opportunity to join a 9 hole golf club which will be reflected in the green fees.
The R&A have now endorsed 9 hole golf competitions as they see that this the way forward.
The course is set in Fryston Park surrounded by mature trees and a gently undulating landscape.
Pay & Play or join for 5 or 7 day membership - no joining fees. Something for everyone.
The golf club was originally a section of Ferrybridge "C" Power Station sports and social club. Started in 1970s, the course was in two parts round the car parks and the cooling towers. It was laid entirely by the members themselves.
Modifications were made down the years but the realignment of the A1 meant the course had to close with the members being accommodated at Mid Yorkshire golf club until a new course could be built to the North of the power station by the Highways Agency.
When the new course was opened the golf club became Ferrybridge Golf Club and operated as a stand-alone golf club with membership open to the general public.
In 2011 the golf course closed again due to the site owners SSE building a new power station on the course. The members were once again to be accommodated at Mid Yorkshire golf club.
We now have a new 9 hole golf course, with 2 tees per. hole built in Fryston Park which is on the other side of the A1 to the station.
The new course has been designed by Simon Gidmon. Due to open 2017.
The course is surrounded by mature woodland, inside the course there are 3 large areas of the same mature woodlands which the designer has made full use of in the course layout, this gives the impression the course is much more mature than it is and at 6300 yards for 18 holes will be a test of golf for high and low handicap golfers. The 7th green is also guarded by a lake.
The club will have a purpose built clubhouse where we can accommodate members and visiting parties. The club will cater for all golfers no matter what their abilities. We will offer 5 & 7 day membership and a possibility of 9 hole mid week handicap competitions. Green fees have yet to be agreed.

May I take this opportunity to brief the members of the latest addition to our Clubhouse Team.
As from Good Friday our catering needs and the kitchen area will be managed by Lou Kerry. Lou is a local lass who will be familiar with the tastes and fayres we are all fond of and I am sure she will provide us with all the delights we are accustomed to. Please support Lou in her new role, with kind words, patience and patronage, and show her a true “Ferrybridge Welcome”.
I am sure Lou will be a key asset in the on-going development of our Golf Club.
