Picturesque Golf Course
Conditions were perfect and this is a magnificent course set in beautiful countryside
The course is challenging and the up and downhill pathways to and from tees to green do test the old knee joints but wow is it worth the walk!
on one tee we were just about to tee off when a deer came crashing through a woodland fence and across the fairway right in front of us
Will definitely play this course again
Played for the first time
Fairways really good greens excellent very relaxed atmosphere very friendly members only down side for me is not a good choice of food
Well worth a visit playing again on Sunday
Gem of a course
Really one of the most interesting and best value courses in Yorkshire. Every hole offers something different and memorable and if you are lucky to play on a decent day, It's a massive treat! Awesome course.
You won’t be bored here. Lots of unusual holes, some stunning scenery and some frankly crazy tee shots. Didn’t know what club to use on the 17th, wedge-driver possible. It’s 4.8 out of 5 for a reason. Anything under £20 is a bargain, must play for that price. The pro was giving lessons before and after the round so getting a scorecard, refreshments may be an issue, not sure if that’s a one off. Strange to see lessons and practice on 1st and 18th holes but who cares it adds to the quirkyness!
Excellent day shame about the man in the pro shop
All great on the day except one far from helpful man in pro shop. He needs to increase his vocabulary to more than one word answers. Not much to ask if the club is be open to serve food. Answer no.. Will it open answer yes. When will it open answer sometime.

Absolutely sensational course on a scorching hot summer day. Literally like playing in the clouds. Quick greens. Lush fairways. Brutal rough. Superb challenge. Brilliant staff and members and views that have to be seen to be believed.
I’ll definitely go back.
Certainly not the last round here
The wet and blustery conditions could not detract from a challenging and thoroughly enjoyable here. A tough test without being unfair with a stunning backdrop and we will certainly be back very soon.
Loved the value for money. These were £70 greens for £20. Course signage could perhaps be improved - I played the 10th thinking it was the 6th I believe. Will be back to play again but don't think I'd enjoy it as much in the wind as it's very exposed
First time and impressed.
Very challenging course requiring accurraccy off the tee. Don't bring your driver if you struggle with a hook / slice! Greens in grreat condition. If you struggle with injuries get a buggy because it is a tough walk. Can't wait to play it again especially now knowing the layout and what shot selection is required.

Cracking course a great test for any level of golfer,greens and fairways were in great condition staff were friendly as were the members overall spot on day recommend anyone should try this course
Course Managment is the name of the game!
1st time playing Halifax GC, the weather was poor (mist and a pretty constant drizzle) and the fairways were very wet, the greens on the other hand were true and surprisingly fast. You really have to think your way around this course, you can use your driver but with caution, I’m not the longest hitter but even I ran out of fairway on a few of the holes. Some of the holes up top will offer stunning views (we couldn’t even see the wind turbines when we were up there) but fortunately we had a small respite when we arrived at the 17th! What a hole!
If I had any criticism, as a 1st time player, our group struggled a bit with where we were supposed to be going (no real signage) but because it was a poor day and the course was quiet we had time to figure it out. (maybe it was just us). This in no way would put me off returning back, but hopefully in better weather.A fine course and a definite challenge.
The Essence of Golf
Having researched the course before play, I had high expectations for the day - and I wasn't disappointed. Three days after the round and I still have a buzz.
Halifax is a gen of a course - as you'd expect from a James Braid / Alistair McKensie creation.
It's fair to say if I had been asked for an opinion of the course after four holes, it might have been unfavourable: my partner had lost two balls and I had started 6,4,6,8. I recovered to shoot 84 on a moderately windy day.
The course is lovingly scuplted from the natural valley in such a way that the course enhances the beautiful landscape. If you thrive on traditional golf - or simply enjoy a break from the modern flat park/tree/manmade hazard model - then Halifax is a joy to behold.
The local members must be golfer/mountain-goat half breeds to play on a routine baiss - it leaves you aching in a rewarding way. A member showed me his wrist monitor that indicated the aggregate vertical climb was over 80 storeys! The views from low and high in the valley are worth the effort.
There are a couple of very short Par 3s but otherwise the moorland course meaders up the slopes of the valley criss-crossing the broolks and streams. It's a punitive course if you miss fairways or mis-club, which is easily done as the wind direction changes every few holes. The 17th is fun - but I loved every hole from 8 through 18.
Minor grumbles - orientation is difficult for the first-timer, we needed the help of a member to locate the 6th green; the practice net was still closed (probably as a result of Covid); the target marker on 18th fairway stands adjacent to the first tee - that might be a good line from the teebox, but from the fairway it's a trap for the newbie.
Greens were in very good condition and running true and fast-ish considering recent weather.
I will be back to play ASAP - hoping the weather is as kind, as I can imagine a strong wind would make the course even longer.
One of the best courses I’ve played in a while including the Brabazon. Great hole selection and I will be returning even though it is over an hour from home. Played the course whilst on a short break with the family. 17th hole was a personal favourite of mine.
Beautiful moorland course
This really was a lovely course to play with a very challenging start, having a tough opening 4 holes. Fairways and greens in great condition. Staff and members that we met were friendly and helpful. The only slight negative was that sometimes there wasnt much in the way of signposts to help you find the next tee easily. Highly recommended course with stunning views and challenging golf.
Halifax G C, Ogden Moor is definitely worth a visit
The course is very exposed and as it was a very windy day it was challenging to say the least. The greens had just been tined which was unfortunate as they would have otherwise been very true and medium/fast.
It’s a tough course without the weather with many really interesting holes which reflect some of the style of its famous designer.
The rugged beauty of the moors that the course is caved from further added to what was a memorable round. Totally recommend.
Lovely moorland course.
Great views from the top, friendly pro’s mum and dad and glad we hired a buggy.
Greens a bit patchy due to the hot summer.
Course itself a good challenge.
What a great place for misplacing golf balls
Bargain £10 round glad i read the reviews and filled the bag with practice balls. 'Offline reload '. Will be back in the summer. 17th hole is mental not a place for people wit a fear or heights.
