Yorkshire & Leeds
Alister Mackenzie is synonymous with the worlds greatest golf courses, with such masterpieces as Cypress Point, Augusta National, Royal Melbourne & Crystal Downs to his name. Arguable the greatest golf course architect of all time begon his career in Leeds, England. This means the area offers up several original designs including his very first, Alwoodley Golf Club and Moortown and Sandmoor making up the trio of MacKenzie originals. The other great course in the region is Ganton Golf Club which is about 90 mins away but more then worth the drive. Ganton is not a Mackenzie original but he did make some alterations at one point.
The Leeds and Yorkshire region tends to fly under the radar for most golfers but is a destination that offers some wonderful golf.
