Golf at Garforth is no ordinary round. With its natural water challenges, a thoroughly enjoyable test for golfers of all ages and abilities awaits. Set in gentle undulating picturesque mature Yorkshire parkland, it is a beautifully maintained 18-hole (6,378 yard), par 70 course. The journey home to the clubhouse from the signature 15th has been described as among the finest finishes in the North of England. The historic course and its facilities have benefitted from significant investment over recent years with its bunkers redesigned and rebuilt.
Garforth was created in 1913 by world-famous course architect Dr Alister Mackenzie, the acclaimed designer of Augusta National.
The Cock and Carr Becks meander across the course. The Cock Beck is reputed to have run with blood during the Battle of Towton, the most infamous conflict of the War of the Roses in 1461. Today the beck flows through a haven of rural tranquillity and relaxation, tucked away just north of the city of Leeds and near to both the M1 and A1(M) motorways.
This hidden gem is the perfect course to escape the stresses and strain of modern living and to simply concentrate on your swing – and keeping your ball out of the water!
