Hebden Bridge Golf course is situated above the town of Hebden Bridge approximately 1000 feet above sea level. The course is laid out on a hill side making use of the natural contours of the land to produce a challenge for golfers of all levels. Although relatively short at just over 5200 yards, the combination of the terrain and the prevailing weather conditions (it's almost always windy) ensure that you have to place your shots carefully in order to record a good score. The course is 'nine holes twice' where there are 9 greens, but 18 different tee positions. Over the years the greens have developed subtle borrows which can confuse all but the best putters. The variation in the tee positions also means that each hole is a new challenge. Conservation of the natural landscape has been of paramount importance, and the course contains significant areas of heather, gorse and bilberries. Views from the course are spectacular and on a clear day you can see as far as the Emley Moor television mast. The clubhouse at Hebden Bridge Golf Club is a converted Farmhouse and Barn dating back to 1779 as shown by the date stone (left). Initially, the farmhouse was used as a clubhouse with the barn being used to store the course maintenance equipment. Currently, the Farmhouse contains the Steward's flat and CP's Bar (named in honour of Philip Astin - a long serving and much missed former member), whilst the barn has been converted to contain the locker rooms on the ground floor and the bar/function room on the 1st floor.
