Sand Moor is a Moorland-Heathland course and was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie in 1926 - who sat on the very first Greens Committee at the club - and famously went on to design Augusta National.
Changes to the course took place in the late 1960's with advice from Henry Cotton and it is currently being updated by Ken Moodie, to help the course stay abreast of modern day equipment whilst remaining loyal to the original concept.
The Sand Moor Golf Course is an 18 hole Championship course, measuring 6,360 yards, consisting of three Par 5's, eleven Par 4's and four Par 3 holes.
The course is well known for its four challenging, Par 3's - The 8th, 10th, 15th and 17th holes, three of which (8th, 10th and 17th) were originally designed by MacKenzie. Each Par 3 varies in length, style and offers a different challenge.
Sand Moor's longest hole is the 545 yard, Par 5 16th hole, which features a tricky left to right sloping fairway.
Sand Moor Golf Club is currently ranked number 7 in the best courses in Yorkshire.
