Undoubtedly one of the best courses I have played in the UK. A classic MacKenzie layout and we played the course on a warm, sunny day. The course is hosting the Brabazon Trophy the week after we played so everything was on an extra level...More

I think it’s somewhat of concern when ones most abiding memory of a course is it’s clubhouse. Architecturally the clubhouse at Alwoodley is beautifully appointed and members and visitors can enjoy watching players tee off the first and approaching the 18th. The course itself, although...More

It will be no surprise that this course designed by the famous Dr Alister Mackenzie is a true test of the golf game. Great bunkering. Lovely views and tricky greens. Unfortunately it was not in the best condition, even allowing for the unseasonable weather. Great...More

We visited midweek as a fourball as part of a golfing tour of Yorkshire. To be honest, whilst the professional was very approachable, our initial opinion was dented by the clubhouse being largely deserted and the lounges/rooms lacking any real ambience. We sat alone with...More
