There are many more MacKenzie courses just a few miles further on, including Alwoodley GC, MacKenzie’s home club around 66 miles distance.
Before moving to expand his career abroad, MacKenzie designed or modified over 70 courses in England, Scotland and Ireland. Although some of these are no longer in existence, round 52 courses have survived and a list can be found on the website of the Alister MacKenzie Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
A handy Record Card is provided to mark-off the dates each course is played.
An elegant Certificate is awarded when all nine courses have been played.
There are a small number of golfers who have managed to play every MacKenzie course, although more are committed to achieving this goal. The ‘Cavendish MacKenzie Trail’ provides a great starting point for this ambition!
