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!

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!

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..

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.

Set in stunning scenery , a course you won't forget. A mixture of straight forward holes and other seemingly easy but strategic holes. It never plays the same twice, when you're on the course you're away from everything else. BRILLIANT

A varied course with plenty off differing style of holes, none more so than the Par 3 17th with a huge drop to the green. Always a pleasure to play here, and always at affordable prices.

Excellent course. With a bit of a links feel. The 17th hole is something to behold. It takes an age for the ball to land ,waiting to see if you chose the right club. Awesome.

Played this course with our golf society on 08/06/14. It is a little hidden gem of a course. We were lucky with the weather on the day, sunshine but a little windy although I doubt they get many calm days up on the moors. The course has a great layout and the greens and fairways were in excellent condition. Several of the holes require a lay up off the tee although we took drivers and were punished accordingly. The views from the top of the course were fantastic and it is walkable although it is hilly in parts and if you have any doubts you may want to consider a buggy. Bacon butties and 2 course meal after the round were very good and every one of our society said they would like to go back and play there again.
