Played in October Seniors Open never played before and I confess to liking this track a lot. Runs to about 6500 yards of relatively flat parkland. The overall layout will give you a good walk because the acerage is vast. The test of Golf is a good one as there are many holes that have sloping fairways, bunkering is not accessive, greens need your best attention as they are not as benign as they look.
All in all a very good course that will reward the accurate player. If you are long and accurate then a very good score is on the cards. Would suit the Low and Mid Handicapper best.
Off Course - Club House is the Flixby Hall and has a majestic appearance if you like Retro.
Club Pro - Ms Alex Keighley very good and welcoming and knows her stuff.
Bar & Members - Business like without being over friendly probably due to the demand for the Club House for Non-Golfing events. Food OK, prices a little higher than you may expect.
Certainly worth your patronage if you are in the area. Living only 20 miles over the hill from Huddersfield I certainly will be back.
