Alwoodley Golf Club and Augusta

News

The 13th hole at Augusta National is often compared to the 10th hole at Alwoodley in the north of England.

Both are par 5’s, with water hazards in the elbow of a left dog leg. Both demand a precise drive with a downhill risk/reward second shot to a sloping green.

Coincidence?

Perhaps not - the 2 courses share the same designer in Alister MacKenzie. Alwoodley dates from 1907; Augusta some 25 years later.

Sadly, MacKenzie did not live to see Augusta finished. His last visit to the site was in 1932, and he died 2 years later, 3 months before the first Masters.
