Introducing the Halifax Golf Club - App.
Created in the early 20th century by James Braid, five times Open champion and foremost Architect of his day, the 18 hole course at Ogden is as natural as the finest seaside links you could name and is one of the best in West Yorkshire. Every tee, fairway and green are as one with the undulating landscape of this exceptional moorland location.
Wildlife is in abundance – Deer, Foxes, Badgers and many species of birds choose here as their home.
The layout has remained true to its original design with the only major alterations being made by Dr Alistair McKenzie in 1912. Dr McKenzie went on to design some of the greatest courses in the world including the Augusta National, home of the US Masters in partnership with the legendary Bobby Jones. Ogden’s design credentials are therefore second to none.
Over recent years, the links have been extensively improved. Most of the tees have been extended and relaid, abandoned bunkers from the early days have been re-introduced and paths and bridges developed to meet the standards expected by today’s golfer. Today, the greens are widely regarded as being amongst the best in Yorkshire.
Ogden provides a great challenge for even the best shot maker. Eleven of the holes feature water hazards, often nestling in the bottom of steep gullies which can gather your ball as naturally and easily as any seaside bunker. Each hole at Ogden is quite different from the last making it a course which will stand out in your memory long after you have enjoyed its unique delights.
For the Golfers, the app features the Whole in One Golf GPS Range Finder and Digital Guide to playing the 18 Hole Championship Course. The App works as a virtual aid, giving you a 3D Flyover of each hole, and a pin positioning system.
