The focal point of Huddersfield Golf Club is undoubtedly the magnificent Fixby Hall. A beautiful 18th century Grade II-listed house, it?s one of the most attractive clubhouses in the country. The course forges out from the hall in two nine-hole loops of some quality.

Course lowdown: Accurate driving is crucial at Huddersfield as the wispy rough is very punishing. The new USGA-spec greens have made the course considerably harder ? their severe slopes demand approach shots that must be played to the correct side of the pin. Find the wrong side and you?ll do well to avoid a three-putt.
