Alwoodley Golf Club
The Alwoodley Golf Club, founded in 1907, is officially recognised as one of Britain’s finest inland courses.
Forming part of the famous stretch of golfing territory on the northern fringe of Leeds in Yorkshire.
The course layout forms part of Wigton Moor and is of a natural moorland character. Springy fairways cut through a profusion of heather, whins and shrubs, with the trees particularly striking in autumn which American visitors find especially appealing. In addition to its scenic beauty, the course is plentifully and cunningly bunkered and has large undulating and interesting greens.
Over the years this impressive course has stood the test of time and is now in the best condition it has been for many years. Today only the 10th and 6th greens have been altered from the original designs and this was completed many years ago.
The Alwoodley Golf Club in Yorkshire was founded by 14 professional businessmen who realised their dream of building a new course at Wigton Moor, Leeds, on land leased from Lord Harewood.Among those present at the first auspicious meeting on 24 January 1907 were Mr G H Tetley (from the local Leeds Brewing family) Mr T L Taylor and the Hon F S Jackson, both of whom played cricket for Yorkshire and England. Another founder member was local GP Dr Alister MacKenzie, who sketched out his design ideas for the new course at Alwoodley and later became the famous international golf course designer.
