Ampleforth College Golf Course

The first records of Ampleforth College Golf Club date from 1972 when Frank Amies, the then licensee at the Fairfax Arms, negotiated an arrangement with Ampleforth College for local people to use the college course at Gilling Castle. The nine-hole course had been constructed in 1960 by the college with the advice of the golf professional at Strensall. The first president of the club was the Rev Leo Chamberlain (now headmaster of the College) who was responsible for arranging the maintenance of the course from the early 1960s. The course underwent a major redevelopment programme in 2003 with the idea being to increase its length. That project is still underway and the final outcome should be a welcome addition to golf in the local area.
