A great finishing hole, probably the best in Yorkshire. From the elevated tee, the challenge is clear and Alwoodley’s clubhouse stands elegantly in the distance. It requires two – three for many of us, especially into the wind – well-struck shots to find the 18th green.
Putting is complicated by a subtle central dome that often seems to take balls away rather than towards the hole. No promising score at Alwoodley is complete until the final putt is holed.
