Slingsby Golf Pairs, Alwoodley 2024!

We can’t wait to host our Slingsby Golf Pairs at the prestigious Alwoodley Golf Club on Thursday 28 March 2024.  

 It’s set to be a great day as the club has a long history of prestigious events. Dating back to 1907, Alwoodley Golf Club in North Leeds is regarded as one of the finest inland courses in the UK and has historical significance with its moorland design coming from world-renowned architect, Dr Alister MacKenzie.  

MacKenzie was both a founder member of Alwoodley and also the first secretary until he resigned in May 1909. He was then immediately elected as a member of the Green Committee and became captain of Alwoodley in 1912. It was a family affair as at the same time his wife Edith was Lady Captain.  

 More than 100 years on, Alwoodley continues to be a sought-after venue for major tournaments, hosting events for the R&A, England Golf and the Yorkshire Union on a regular basis. 

 More recently, work under the supervision of Ken Moodie saw almost all of the bunkers restored to MacKenzie’s original specifications while new championship tees took the yardage to 6,914 yards against a par of 71. 

 The most recent course work, conducted by Clyde Johnson, who trained under Tom Doak, has seen extensive tree removal, gorse and heather management and reconfiguration of some of the bunkering. 

In 2019, Alwoodley welcomed the Brabazon Trophy – or the English Amateur Open Strokeplay Championship, to give its full title – for the first time. 

 Alwoodley is also proud to have hosted several prestigious amateur and professional events over the years including: 

  • Regional Qualifying for the Open Championship
  • Ladies’ British Amateur Championship 
  • Brabazon Trophy – the English Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship 
  • English Ladies’ Amateur Championship 
  • British Girls’ Championship 
  • English Amateur 
  • Tillman Trophy 

A fine day of golf includes a Slingsby arrival gift, breakfast roll & coffee,18 holes at Alwoodley Golf Club, Slingsby prizes, Slingsby gin bar and live scoring!

We can’t wait to host Slingsby Golf Pairs at the prestigious Alwoodley golf course! It’s set to be a fantastic and memorable day with clients travelling from far and wide!”
