Huddersfield Golf Club was founded in 1891 and its course was laid out by Tom Dunn, who was one of the most prolific architects of his day. Subsequent revisions to the layout were made by Sandy Herd (the club’s first professional, who won the Open in 1902) and a host of others, including Herbert Fowler, Fred Hawtree and Donald Steel. In 2004, Cameron Sinclair also upgraded all eighteen greens to USGA standard.

Today, the layout extends to 6,514 yards from the back tees. First time visitors teeing off on the tough (and long) par four 1st hole (“Camborne”) may be a little surprised to see golfers on the long par four 9th (“Hall”) cut across their path as the old-fashioned routing crosses over the two fairways at the start and finish of the front nine holes.

The toughest hole on the card (stroke index 1) is played at the 512-yard 5th (“Gernhill”), an uncompromising par five that doglegs right across a row of cross bunkers to a green surrounded by another three sand traps. The 419-yard 12th (“Wells Ing”) is another stiff test, the hole veering sharply left to a green that’s protected by a solitary bunker to the front of the putting surface.

The course has hosted many prestigious competitions, both amateur and professional, down the years. The PGA used to hold the Lawrence Batley Seniors Tournament here and the Ladies Golf Union and English Ladies’ Golf Association have used the course for national and international events, including the Ladies Seniors Home Internationals in 2014.
