|Pannal Golf Club lies to the south of Harrogate amidst glorious countryside. The course was designed by Sandy Herd, the 1902 Open Champion, in 1906. In 1935 it underwent further reconstruction by Major Charles Mackenzie, the renowned golf course architect. The course which resulted has stood the test of time, challenging players of the highest ability to this day. The total yardage of the course is 6622 with a SSS of 72 and a par of 72.
Superb views further enhance the course which is laid out on a stretch of gorse-covered, tree-lined land. To the west in Wharfedale, the landmark Almscliffe Crag, to the north the Crimple Valley and viaduct made famous in Turner's painting and to the east, the rolling plains of York with views on a clear day of the Minster.
The quality of Pannal's course has long been acknowledged and the Club has hosted many prestigious events.
