Headingley Golf Club

Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK

GGD undertook a course audit of the Harry Colt/Alister MacKenzie (and later Hawtree) designed course at Headingley Golf Club, which was established in 1907 and is set on a beautiful undulating heathland/moorland site to the north of Leeds. There are some stunning examples of Colt and Mackenzie’s finest work on bunkers and greens, however, some aspects have been lost or, sadly, unsympathetically modified over the years.

Our work here has involved assessing all aspects of the golf course on a hole-by-hole basis and producing an historic design timeline, an illustrated masterplan, together with detailed recommendations that include new tees complexes, greens and surrounds, water features, the renovation of all bunkers and improvements to practice facilities.

Bunker remodelling and tee reconstruction work has already been completed on holes #1, #3, #5 and #14, working with contractor, C&C Golfscapes.
