As a member of HGC I can recommend it to visitors. Not as well known as a couple of our neighbours but definately in the top 3 courses in Leeds. A mix of holes that will test golfers of all standards. The course has been developed over time by Dr Alister Mackenzie and Harry S Colt, the 16th and 17th are iconic Mackenie holes with Henry Cotton describing the 17th as one of the best short holes he had ever played. In 1923 the course staged what was billed as the unofficial 'Championship of the World' between American superstars Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen. Hagen triumphed, but lost in the final by a two-hole margin to Ryder Cup star Bert Jolly. If you're coming to Leeds to play golf don't miss Headingley and if you're not planning to come to Leeds make the effort, you wont be disappointed!

Upon arriving at the course as a guest, I was greeted by the incredibly friendly bar staff who asked if there was anything they could help with. They then pointed me in the direction of the pro shop where the golfers were very knowlegable and chatty. The course was fab and I throughly enjoyed myself.

Arriving back at the clubhouse, the staff were again very smiley and approachable, I ordered some lunch which came in a quick fashion. All staff were neat and had the perfect personalities to make the club welcoming. Golfers were welcoming as well, all in all a fab day!
