Woodsome Hall is a 16th-century country house in the parish of Almondbury, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. It is now the clubhouse of Woodsome Hall Golf Club and a Grade I listed building.
At 6,141 yards off the White Tees (5,812) off the Yellow Tees), and with a Par of 70/SSS of 71, Woodsome Hall golf course provides a fine test of skill with accuracy, patience and concentration being the keys to scoring well. With over 70 bunkers, many of them having recently been re-laid and repositioned, long Par 3’s and testing Par 5’s there is plenty to keep you on your toes throughout the course of a round. Golfers of all levels will be well rewarded however, as a day here at Woodsome will provide one of the finest golfing experiences in Yorkshire.
Situated on the outskirts of Huddersfield, with excellent access to the motorway networks, the course sits on the edge of the Pennine foothills. Originally designed by James Braid and opened for play in 1922, the course is now well matured with tree-lined fairways, some quite narrow, and many elevated and finely manicured greens. Couple the course with our 16th Century clubhouse, one of the most interesting and beautiful to be found anywhere, and you genuinely have the complete package.
If you enjoy a challenge and wish to play golf on one of the finest courses in Yorkshire then come and visit Woodsome Hall. You will not be disappointed. Traditional golfing values, blended with a quality course and fine hospitality provide all the ingredients for a memorable experience.

Above the pro-shop John has developed an indoor putting centre where members at Woodsome Hall GC are now able to enjoy one of the best facilities in Yorkshire. There is a 40 foot indoor putting green and more than 70 putters from more than 7 golf brands for players to test out. The facility has been described by many a club professional as being ‘magnificent!’
The putting area features a state-of-the-art surface which measures a 12 on the stimp meter: this speed having been chosen as it provides the user with a true roll. It also has a surface around the outside of the green which imitates the fringe on an outside green thus providing the ability to provide chipping lessons indoors.
GC2 Smart Camera System
In our swing studio we have a state-of-the-art golf simulator which enables the player to get the best experience possible. It is used extensively for the fitting up of new clubs. The GC2 is one of the most accurate simulators around and is used by tour players such as Ian Poulter.
C Swing is one of the leading swing analysis software systems on the market today. To compliment the software we have two high-tech video cameras which capture front view and down the line view of the golfers swing. This provides great feedback and a basis on which to build a training programme.
