Alwoodley's course runs almost straight out and back, the inward nine being tougher as most of the holes are played into the fresh winds off the Yorkshire Moors. The North of the course is bordered by Wigton Moor Whin, which is particularly magnificent in autumn when the leaves are turning and rich in colour.

At Alwoodley do not make the mistake of confusing Stroke Index with Degree of difficulty. These indices were devised in 1907 when golf was only matchplay (and they still work very well today)!
Some of the toughest holes on the course are the last 6, as you turn back into the prevailing westerly wind. Build your score on the first 12!
