Gaunt Golf Design have recently completed a full 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.
The work has involved assessing all aspects of the golf course on a hole-by-hole basis and producing a masterplan, detailing recommendations that include new tees complexes, greens and surrounds, water features, the renovation of all bunkers, improvements to practice facilities and a complete new hole #4. The work is scheduled to be undertaken over the next five years, with Phase 1 starting in Spring 2012.
