What the club says: Created in the early 20th century by James Braid, five times Open champion andView up the valley foremost Architect of his day, the 18 hole course at Ogden is as natural as the finest seaside links you could name. Every tee, fairway and green is as one with the undulating landscape of this exceptional moorland location. Wildlife is in abundance - Deer, Foxes, Badgers and many species of birds choose here as their home.

The layout has remained true to its original design with the only major alterations being made by Dr Alistair McKenzie in 1912. Dr McKenzie went on to design some of the greatest courses in the world including the Augusta National, home of the US Masters in partnership with the legendary Bobby Jones. Ogden's design credentials are therefore second to none.

Excellent course bargain price

I’ve played this course a few times as I live near by and it’s noticeably harder then many of the courses near by but very enjoyable. Definitely need to plan your shots as you pay for it if you go for glory. As everyone says the 17th is a cracking hole off the top. And stay out of the rough as we got through quite a few balls. Great course if you like to challenge yourself. Scored 103 and 23 ish handicap. Like I say it’s hard

A Grown Up Thinkers Course

Want a course where you just tee up and smash it down a fairway and then decide what's needed on shot two ? dont come to Halifax GC then, this is a course where each hole needs studying from a layout point of view, wind, elevation and position of the green. Not only that, which fairway gives you the best chance of hitting a green in regulation. Even the driving range is difficult as you are hitting across a valley of "ball gone" rough. We played it on a mildly windy warm day and found some shots required two or three clubs more. First few holes are challenging but for mid-handicappers are nearly all shot holes, so think them through and you've got a good chance of a decent score. Then you get to the 17th ... wow .. first time you play it, you will probably have no idea what club to use ... which is why you have to go back again. Great course, very friendly pro and members and we will definitely go back again, hoping for a windless calm day.

The essence of Golf

First time playing this stunning James Braid / McKensie course and I hope to return many times in future. The course is a challenge for golfers of all abilities as the course has been expertly sculptured from the natural landscape. If you love golf that is closer to the game's origins combined with excellent greens and a welcoming clubhouse, then Halifax GC must go on your bucket list.

Traversing the course requires some strength and stamina - a vertical climb of 81 storeys in the round! Many of the Members were carrying their bags - they must be made of sterner stuff in this neck of God's County!

19th hole - the club house setting looking down the valley towards Huddersfield is wonderful, especially sat on the terrace with a pint of Wainwrights Golden Ale.

A minor grumble - for the first-time visitor, orientation guides are a little lacking. Standing on the 6th tee, we were faced with three alternate plausibe target flags and the layout map couldn't resolve the dilemma. Fortunately, a Member kindly set out bearings straight. On the final fairway, there's a marker post adjacent to the first tee - this might be a line off the tee, but from a blind fairway it's the wrong line completely!

Always a challenge.

Played Halifax several times, usually some wind and the severity determines your score! Even when bad weather hits the course is playable and the greens are good.

A Day on the moor

Course in great condition - greens superb. Certainly not an "easy course" and you need to be fit as there are many climbs. Very enjoyable though. Avoid the rough!!!

Stunning natural beauty

Played here for 3rd time and still love it. The rugged natural surroundings are simply amazing and views incredibly. Need to think carefully about clubbing as many holes play shorter than true distances. Will be back!

Good test in good weather, little shabby round edges

Halifax Golf Club is tucked away in a quiet corner of the moors and you really get that quiet impression when you turn up there. The pro shop is freshly stocked with new apparel and gear but a little old fashioned in lay out, same goes for the clubhouse.

Out on the course you are given an opening par 5 dogleg right to behind which is a nice steady opening hole and then a good par 3 on the second.

After the second the course goes downhill considerably for the next couple of holes with an odd design, shared fairways and almost impossible approaches to the fourth green. After those two shambles of holes however the course does then begin to open out into a true moorland test. A couple of the holes in the back 9 require a long accurate drive if you want to make birdie.

Overall, I enjoyed my 82 round HGC, I was impressed by the difference in hole style and layout but disappointed with a lack of green keeping on teeboxes and greens. To mention, the greens were rock solid and fast but not in very good condition.

If this course was tidied up around the tees and greens and fairways given a more dramatic cut to juxtapose against the Heather in the rough it could Be one of Yorkshire’s finest.

Brilliant course, best course I've played in a long time. Was in fantastic condition, and nice and quiet on a weekday. Excellent value, great variety of holes and probably the best individual hole (17th) that I've ever played..

A real test of golf

Played this course during quite adverse weather conditions. Driving rain and windy. All the holes are different and are challenging. The views from the top are stunning. Everybody very welcoming from the Pro to the staff behind the bar. Catering was excellent and highly recommended.

Played in a mid summer open this year and was blown away by the place. Everyone talks about the 17th but this does not do justice to the rest of the course. Very strategic off the tee with super wide fairways that challenge you to leave good angles into the green. How they got it round here in 1912 I\'ll never know!!!\Highlights for me where...\2nd shot into the first hole, strange ravine right and a green with 4 foot of slope leading down from left side, tough to know where to miss.\The elevated 4th green. Wow! Small target and a shot filled with drama.\The short, driveable 11th. Totally blind with 2 marker posts. Reminded me of tenby, another braid course.\Wonderful old clubhouse with some relics from the clubs golden past. An absolute treat for anyone who appreciates a good test.
