Golf Course Review

Halifax Golf Club is set in the heart of the Ogden Moors north of Halifax and west of Bradford in West Yorkshire, England.

Founded in 1895, the Halifax Golf Club played on a 12 hole course until they moved to Ogden and the Ogden Moors in October 1902. Changes to the course quickly followed and were put in play by autumn 1906.

In 1908, Herbert Fowler cast his eye over the course. Four years later in 1912, Dr Alister MacKenzie came to inspect and make suggestions on the course. The 2nd hole, a 130-yard par 3, was built on his recommendation. Some feel the 10th green should be credited to him as well.

However, it would be James Braid in 1920 who made the final major changes and introduced the current 6th, 7th and 8th holes.
