A true classic, Moortown has been on the ‘must play’ list of every serious golfer since it was crafted by Dr Alister MacKenzie in 1909 and then hosted the Ryder Cup 20 years later. Immortalised by the likes of Henry Cotton and his victorious GB&I team-mates, as well as Americans Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen, this Yorkshire venue is brimming with history, a fact which is evident from the moment you pull on your spikes in the charming locker room that has aged gracefully and sets the perfect tone.
But is not just the locker room, the clubhouse or the 18th hole where this feeling of history is apparent, but in every yard of a moorland track where almost every hole could have featured as one of favourites. The 10th is undeniably the signature hole, a visually stunning par 3 that features a green that will challenge you regardless of the pin position. The 12th is a wonderful par 5 which along with the 11th, 13th and 14th plays up and down the Heathland terrain on the back part of the course. The finish at Moortown is a daunting one, a long par 4 which plays right up to the clubhouse terrace, a fantastic way to finish any round.
