Alwoodley Golf Course
"One of the best kept secrets in British golf" according to 'Today's Golfer'. This course is formed by springy fairways cut through areas of heather,whins and shrubs. The autumn colours of the surrounding trees are particularly appealing and its scenic beauty is only matched by the interesting design of the
bunkers and greens.Dr Alister Mackenzie, the famous golf architect, joined forces with Harry Shapland Colt in order to create Alwoodley in 1907.Over the years this 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 11th greens have been altered from the origional design and even they have been in place for over 70 years!

Description
The choice of courses in England is almost endless for the discerning golf visitor. There are mighty seaside links such as those of Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake,where the Amateur Championship was born and where Bobby Jones won the Open Championship in his historic Grand Slam year of 1930. There is plenty of historic interest in English golf, with the oldest existing course in England and Westward Ho in Devon. The club was formed there in 1864 and today sheep continue to grace the ancient links on this common land.
