Firefighters from South Kirkby and Pontefract stations were called out to the club at Mill Lane in South Kirkby at 4.55pm.
A spokeswoman for Pontefract station said there were flames coming from the window of the 'derelict' club.
And a spokesman from South Kirkby said that smoke could also be seen on site.
He added: "It isn't secure and quite unsafe for us to enter."
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
A planning application to demolish the club and staff house, and build up to 14 homes in its place, was approved last September.
