Overview

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.

A sketch by Harry Rountree was found in Bernard Darwin's book, The Golf Courses of the British Isles dating from 1910.

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 club is located at Grade II listed Fixby Hall, in the large market town of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Egland. It sits centrally between Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds and just north of the Pennines.

Swan Golf Designs has completely overhauled the bunkers which accent the USGA specification greens that were installed a few years ago by Hawtree. William Swan did his best to preserve the golden age aesthetic of rough edges but reorganised their placement to keep the hazards relevant in the modern game.

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. The back nine is found on the southern side of the property. The par 71 is not long at just over 6400 yards with five par three's and four par five's are found on the card.
