Greencard Golf Breaks Harrogate 2018 Event
As promised after our successful first visit to Harrogate in 2016 we are returning to the area for one of our UK events, the range of post golf venues, a fantastic modern luxury hotel and a concentration of some of the best golf courses in the country, put Harrogate amongst our favourite UK golf break destinations.
Harrogate is perhaps the most famous and popular of the Yorkshire towns. Originally it became popular with visitors for its spring waters, but has since developed into a modern tourist destination at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.
It is also a perfect location for visiting some of the top golf courses in the north of England, and during our golf tournament event here we will be playing four of the very best – including a course ranked in the UK top 20, two Open Championship qualifier venues and the home of the first Ryder Cup held on British soil in 1929.
Our hotel is also an multi-award winner with accolades for the quality of its accommodation, design and restaurant. The West Park is a luxury boutique hotel, and is a welcome break away from the more traditional hotels in the area with modern design, five star equivalent in-room facilities and excellent customer service.
We’ve been looking forward to returning to Harrogate since our first visit in 2016, and hope you’ll join us for what will be a great golf tournament played over some fantastic golf courses, at least one of which should be on your UK must-play golf bucket list!
Greencard Golf Breaks Harrogate 2018: West Park Hotel
This contemporary boutique hotel, part of the award winning Provence Inns group, has been transformed from the original Victorian coach house into 25 spacious and luxurious rooms and suites. This will be the second time we have stayed at the West Park Hotel in Harrogate, having been impressed with the location, rooms and service when we first used it as our base for an event in Yorkshire a few years ago. It is also in good proximity to some outstanding golf courses.
The hotel looks out onto the beautiful Harrogate Stray, an open area of 200 acres of parkland right in the centre of this historic town. All the rooms are designed and finished to the highest specifications including wide screen TV, bathrooms with under floor heating and speakers for your own music.
There is a lovely restaurant at the West Park hotel, including a courtyard for al fresco dining. The bar is well stocked with locally brewed ales, an extensive wine list and some great cocktails. The town centre with its many bars and restaurants is just a few minutes walk giving you a variety of options and evening entertainment. There is plenty to see and do in Harrogate and the surrounding area including the famous Turkish Baths, the RHS Garden at Harlow Carr and of course no trip here is complete without a trip to Betty’s Tea Rooms!

Greencard Golf Breaks Harrogate 2018: Golf Courses
Sandmoor Golf Club
Mckenzie designed this course in 1926, nineteen years after Alwoodley. However, a major change to the course took place in the late 1960’s when four new holes were created under the watchful eye of Henry Cotton.
In recent times many improvements have been made including a complete refurbishment of the clubhouse.
The course has held several professional events in the past with winners including Sir Nick Faldo.
Pannal Golf Club
This beautiful course is located in stunning woodland and heathland with outstanding views of Harrogate and the surrounding areas. It is recognised by the R&A as an Open qualifier venue and in July 2015 co-hosts the English Amateur Championship.
Moortown Golf Club
This is a classic moorland golf course and another design from Alistair McKenzie. Opening in 1910, shortly after Alwoodley the course has held many prestigious events in the past including the 1929 Ryder Cup.
Moortown is a great place to play golf, all the holes offer a great deal of variety in look and feel. It is a pleasure to play and will test your skills as shot-making is required to post a good score.
Alwoodley Golf Club
Designed by Alistair McKenzie and Harry Colt in 1907 this stunning heathland course is ranked in the top 20 in England. It has been used as a Regional Qualifier for the Open. Clearly inspired by his work here McKenzie went on to design the great Augusta National, home of the Masters.
The course is a combination of heathland and Moorland with beautifully manicured fairways. If you miss the fairways, there is plenty of heather and gorse which supplies the backdrop to this special course.
