At A Glance

Course policy is the course should be maintained and managed as closely as possible to the original MacKenzie design concepts.

The par 5 10th was the inspiration for the 13th at Augusta National.

Risk is rewarded if successful. Playing safe doesn't give an advantage.

Centrally placed bunkers on doglegs.

The greens are large and not as undulating as some of MacKenzie's later work.

Full Course Review

Alwoodley Golf Club sits atop Wigton Moor to the North of Leeds not far from the Yorkshire Dales and the town of Harrogate. Founded in 1907, it was built by the greenkeeper after advice was given by Alister MacKenzie and Harry Colt. Alister MacKenzie became the club's first Secretary. The clubhouse is now one of the best in the game; the original is now the pro-shop.

Recently, Ken Moodie has added some length and restored the bunkers. Now stretched to over 6,900 yards it plays to a par of 71, the work was done in preparation to host the 2019 English Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship or Brabazon Trophy.

Alwoodley Golf Club is one of 15 clubs in the renowned The Alister MacKenzie Society. Moortown is the only other English entry.
