golf course trig Wish I'd had a green jacket to put on it for a photo! nice and white but wish ppl wouldn't paint over the flush bracket and spider. Makes me want to come back with Nitromors, scraper and wire brush to bring it back to brass.vegibagger26/06/2017

4th and final hill of the day and my Bradford tump completion hill. Haworth to Oakworth via Withens Height, Little Wolf stones and Steeton Moor on a tough day with persistent rain and wind. Descended Steeton Moor to Gooseye for a drink at the Turkey Inn then took track to Holme House Lane but veered off directly for summit via slippery scramble through trees on Holme House lane and then direct for summit on deserted golf course (with sheets of rain and standing water). Descent to Oakworth to take K7 bus to Keighley from bus stop adjacent to Holden Park.Dazingdale19/03/2017

Room for a single car to park alongside the seat at the start of the footpath to the SW (alt 275m). Follow the footpath until it enters the golf course. The summit trig is a short distance away at 1 o'clock, approached by a track across the course. 1.06 km return, 20 minutes.moorsman17/02/2017
Windy early morning so no golf happening. Paths seem to lead from main footpath across to trig - as soon as I got there I noticed a groundsman heading towards me though so left quickly, wondering whether I should have been there! I definitely don't look like a golfer...the_adam23/12/2016
W Darren on Bradford & Leeds tump day. short walk to trig on golf course. Phil Wood, Yorkshire Golf Captain from 1994 to 1996 nominates the 17th hole as 'one of the most difficult and dangerous finishing holes in Yorkshire golf'. Pro's tip (which could apply equally to bagging?):The drive is critical - it can be too short, too long, too right or too left! Yours needs to be 'just right'.Chris Pearson25/07/2016

Parked in Slaymaker Lane to SW, walked up very muddy track at side of wood past even muddier cows. Stile at end onto golf course and trig dead ahead.Aye Jimmy17/03/2014
If you stand inside the white circle around the pillar you will turn into a golf club. Or did I mean if you turn into the golf club you will find a pillar with a white circle?Martin R29/08/2013
