|Course Name: Huddersfield Holes: 18 Yardage: 6432 SSS: 71|
|From the long doglegged 475 yard par 4 opening hole the course is a true test of golf. Mastery of every club in the bag is necessary to return a good score. The first nine are relatively flat but the second half is undulating, and at its highest on the 18th fairway.
Players who have brought honours to the Club include Alex Herd, who as Club Professional won the Open Championship in 1902, and John Fallon, a past Ryder Cup Captain, who was runner up to Peter Thomson in the 1955 Open at St Andrews.
Prominent early visitors included the legendary Ben Sayers and brothers Tom and Harry Vardon. Vardon with James Braid and J H Taylor played a notable exhibition match in 1906. Other famous golfing visitors include Henry Cotton in 1936. In 1949 Roberto de Vicenzo became the first and only player to drive within 100 yards of the green on the 485 yard 18th. More recently Gary Player is reported to have said that he wished he could carry the Fixby fairways with him around the world.
