Alwoodley is regarded as one of Britains finest inland courses. It was designed by the great Dr Alister MacKenzie. This famed architect left a legacy of classic courses around the world among them Augusta National, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne. However, Alwoodley was the first course he designed and is therefore known as the Original MacKenzie.
Alwoodleys famous architect, Dr Alister MacKenzie, created a layout of rare subtlety and sophistication on moorland to the north of the city of Leeds.
Alwoodley is a natural heathland course, with springy fairways that cut through a profusion of heather, whins and shrubs. It features eye-catching and naturalistic-looking bunkers, strategic choices, and large, often undulating, greens.
The course runs almost straight out and back, the inward nine being tougher as most holes are played into the prevailing wind.
At Alwoodley, the Stroke Index does not always equate with degree of difficulty the indices were devised when the course opened in 1907. In these days golf was mainly matchplay so instead the low and high numbers are spread evenly around the course.
Now well over a century old, the Original MacKenzie remains true to its architects original intentions.
However, new championship tees have extended the course to in excess of 6,900 yards against a par of 71 in readiness for the English Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship more commonly known as the Brabazon that Alwoodley is proud to host for the first time in 2019.
