The Course is constantly praised by members and visitors for its superb condition, a tribute to the small but dedicated team of greens staff. The short 17th "Quarry Hole" is Bracken Ghyll's signature hole. A par three 148 yards off the white tees demanding an accurate tee shot to a raised green flanked down the right by a stream that gathers many balls. It can be a card breaker at the end of your round. The challenging 14th hole is stroke index 1, just under 500 yards par 5 and the approach to the green is guarded by a large tree on each side of the fairway. The par 4 12th is dominated by the glorious presence of Beamsley Beacon down the left side with sensational views down the valley to Bolton Abbey when you reach the 13th tee.
