Scarcroft Golf Club, which is often described as “Yorkshire’s Hidden Gem” was established in 1937 and is a challenging test for both the professional and enthusiastic amateur alike.
Designed by leading golf architect Major Charles Mackenzie, the gloriously undulating course with its rich variety of mature trees and spacious fairways, is surrounded by spectacular wooded parkland.
The names of many of the holes reflect the natural beauty of the peaceful rural setting starting with the formidable opener, the Jubilee Oak, and continuing with Badger’s Wood, Hawthorns, Poplars and Forest Hill to name just a few.
The course regularly plays host to a number of prestigious golfing events including championship and county matches of the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs, as well as the English Ladies Golf Association.
Scarcroft Golf Club is probably not as well known as some of the more illustrious courses found locally – as Alwoodley golf club – but it is a fine course which should definitely be on a Leeds golf trip itinerary
