Alwoodley Golf Club

Alwoodley is regarded as one of Britain’s finest inland courses. It was designed by the great Alister MacKenzie. This famed architect left a legacy of classic courses around the world – among them Augusta National, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne. However, Alwoodley was the first course he designed and is therefore known as the Original MacKenzie.

Alwoodley is a natural heathland course, with springy fairways that cut through a profusion of heather, whins and shrubs. It features eye-catching and naturalistic-looking bunkers, strategic choices, and large, often undulating, greens. The course runs almost straight out and back, the inward nine being tougher as most holes are played into the prevailing wind.

At Alwoodley, the Stroke Index does not always equate with degree of difficulty – the indices were devised when the course opened in 1907. In these days golf was mainly matchplay so instead the low and high numbers are spread evenly around the course.

Now well over a century old, the Original MacKenzie remains true to its architect’s original intentions.

Moortown Golf Club

Founded in 1909, Moortown was designed by the World-famous golf course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie, who also designed Augusta National, Cypress Point, Royal Melbourne and many other championship courses throughout the world.

Well-known around the World as the host of the first Ryder Cup match on British soil, in 1929, Moortown is regarded by many as one of the Country’s finest inland golf courses. Over the past Century the Club has hosted many professional and amateur tournaments with winners that include Sir Nick Faldo, Bernard Gallagher and Sir Michael Bonallack, former Captain of the R & A, to name but a few.

Sand Moor is an Alister MacKenzie designed course, created in 1926, situated 5 miles north of Leeds City Centre, with stunning views over Eccup reservoir. The Sand Moor Golf Course is an 18 hole Championship course, measuring 6,446 yards, consisting of three par 5’s, eleven par 4’s and four par 3 holes.

The course is perhaps better known for its four challenging par 3’s – each of which were originally designed by Alister MacKenzie. Each par 3 varies in length, style and offers a different challenge.
