Halifax Golf Course

Created in the early 20th century by James Braid, five times Open champion and 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.

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. Over recent years, the links have been extensively improved. Most of the tees have been extended and re-laid, abandoned bunkers from the early days have been re-introduced and paths and bridges developed to meet the standards expected by today's golfer. The greens are widely regarded as being amongst the best in West Yorkshire.

Halifax provides a good challenge for even the best shot makers. Eleven of the holes feature water hazards, often nestling in the bottom of steep gullies which can gather your ball as naturally and easily as any seaside bunker. Rough is the other main hazard which, although neatly and fairly graduated, can be pretty severe for the really wayward. Each hole at Ogden is quite different from the last making it a course which will stand out in your memory long after you have taken on the challenge. The first 12 holes represent an easy climb up the valley with many of the fairways crisscrossing two streams. Holes 13 through to 16 are cut out of true moorland and afford spectacular views across the earlier holes and down the Hebble Valley towards Halifax. After the 16th there is nowhere to go but down and the par 3 17th, aptly named 'Bagott's Leap', is Ogden's famous signature hole. Club selection is of paramount importance here and, depending on the wind conditions, you can take anything from a 3-wood to a pitching wedge!

Ogden is a truly unique experience in the world of golf and whether you conquer it or not, there is no doubt that you will remember it forever.
