Huddersfield Golf Club is home to a well-rated championship golf course, originally designed by Tom Dunn. Later modifications were introduced by various celebrated designers, including Dr Alister MacKenzie. Wonderfully natural landscapes and views abound from the Grade II listed clubhouse and several vantage points around the course.
This renowned stalwart of West Yorkshire golf offers a partly open, partly tree-lined layout that should not disappoint. From its huge tee-box, the long par-4 1st proceeds gently downhill, crossing the par-4 9th fairway en route to the green. After this opening "idiosyncrasy", the layout becomes a little more straightforward, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.
Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted and pleasantly testing design. Definitely one to include on your play list if you are in the area.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].

Huddersfield GC's impressive clubhouse is the Grade II listed Fixby Hall. Little is known about the early history of this once private house, which for several centuries (c.1220-1809) was home to the influential and noble Thornhill family. Clara Thornhill, whose portrait hangs in the club's dining room, became a personal friend of Charles Dickens; it is thought he gained his inspiration for Haversham Hall in Great Expectations from his visits to Fixby.
