Tour to Yorkshire – 5th to 7th September 2021

Event History

In September 2001 Golf Society Member, John Winter, was inspired to organise a 3-day tour to North-West France. Thanks to an unfailing mix of camaraderie, quality accommodation, excellent cuisine and quality golf courses (including Open Championship venues), annual overseas and UK tours have been well supported by the membership ever since.

The Format

Our Golf Society annual tour this year returns to Yorkshire, staying at the York Hilton in the centre of York.  We will play Moortown on our first day; home of the 1927 Ryder Cup. On Day two, we tackle Kirkbymoorside in North Yorkshire.  This is the home course of society member Gus Whyte who has assured us that the course and the welcome will be second to none. On the final day we once again steel ourselves to tackle Ganton. Ganton plays host to The Brabazon Trophy this year to add to heritage that includes The Curtis Cup, The Walker Cup and The Ryder Cup. On Days 1 and 2, we will be playing an 18 hole individual and a team stableford competition. On the final day we will be playing an 18 hole individual stableford competition.


The Hilton York hotel, located opposite the iconic Clifford’s Tower, is within easy walking distance of the city centre. The accommodation is contemporary and use of the 24-hour fitness room is included. Valet car parking is available at the hotel but will need to pre booked directly with the hotel. There is an abundance of car parking available outside the hotel.


Housed in the former house of Georgian architect G.T Andrews, it dates back to around 1825/26. It is probably the earliest surviving purpose built architect’s office. It is a Grade II listed building, and also an English Heritage Monument. It has impressive period features and décor throughout, chiefly the original fireplaces in the main Dining room and bar area. It also sits in the shadow of the ever impressive, Clifford’s Tower, one of York’s major landmarks and within walking distance of our hotel.

Seasonal Menus of Local Produce

The  restaurant offers fine dining and contemporary modern European cuisine and specialises in producing outstanding quality food, using only the finest local produce with everything cooked freshly every day.

Chef Patron Nick Julius
