Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
Over a period of 40 years Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed or modified more than 500 courses world-wide including Valderrama, Firestone, Spyglass Hill and Sotogrande. Moor Allerton Golf Club is the only course he designed in the UK. It is unique. He laid out 27 holes on 220 acres of undulating Yorkshire countryside in three distinct loops of nine. It is different to its neighbours having large contoured greens, large teeing areas, boldly shaped bunkers and, of course, water hazards. The classic course design blends beautifully with the surrounding Yorkshire landscape. Many famous players walked these fairways in the days when the PGA European Tour came here. Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo. Greg Norman and Brian Barnes. Tom Weiskopf and Tony Jacklin. Over a number of years Ryder Cup player Howard Clark was attached to Moor Allerton Golf Club as playing professional. Peter Alliss, who was the Head Professional in the early 70’s, reckons that ‘Moor Allerton is a golfing experience larger than life’.
Moor Allerton is friendly and relaxed, the 27 holes are perfect for a thoroughly entertaining day’s golf.
