Garforth Golf Club hosts Mackenzie Medallion golf event

September 2, 2013

Garforth Golf Club is to host the prestigious Mackenzie Medallion Golf tournament on Sunday 8 September 2013 as part of its centenary year celebrations.

The MacKenzie Medallion Tournament is an annual competition hosted by a member club of The Alister MacKenzie Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and is always played on a golf course designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie.

Originally from Wakefield, MacKenzie also designed the courses of Alwoodley and Moortown locally, as well as the internationally-renowned Royal Melbourne in Australia and the Augusta National in the USA. Garforth Golf Club's course has been refined over the years but has remained largely unaltered from MacKenzie's original design since 1913, although the first tee has been rebuilt for 2013 to offer a panoramic view over the course and fairway, complete with a new starters' hut and a commemorative plaque.

Garforth Golf Club is looking forward to welcoming representatives from fellow MacKenzie Society clubs across the UK.

Club Captain Andy King said, "This is one of the highlights of Centenary year. All the clubs participating can be assured of a warm welcome and excellent hospitality. We have a had fantastic year on and off the course. It's difficult to pick specific highlights but we can look back on much success and enjoyment, the centenary week of members golf in June, the Centenary Ball and Family Fun Day in early August."
