At A Glance

Moortown Golf club played host to the first European Ryder Cup in 1929. The golf course itself is a complete set of 18 without a weak link. Width is a key golf architecture feature.

The 10th hole, a Par 3 named 'Gibraltar', features a multi-tiered green. Earning its namesake, it is built on a large rock which creates the base and forms the shape of the green. It was the first hole built by Alistair MacKenzie to demonstrate his skills to the founders of Moortown Golf Club. Thereafter, he was commissioned to build the full golf course!

Neil Crafter wrote an article on Gibraltar for SAGCA, which can be seen by clicking here.
