There has been some speculation of Alister MacKenzie's involvement at some point in the club's history. The evidence leads one to the conclusion that is was not Alister but rather his brother, Charles, who undertook the work.

Golf Course Review

Huddersfield Golf Club, or simply Fixby, is one the oldest and finest golf clubs in Yorkshire and the north of England.

The course is laid out in two returning loops from the clubhouse. The front nine is driven through when you enter the estate on the north side of the site.
