Founded in 1900, the current course was designed 100 years ago by world famous golf course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie and opened on 29th July 1922. Cleckheaton Golf Club is an 18 hole 6155 yard parkland course with four tee colour options. It's a true challenge for golfers of all abilities.

Just 40 minutes drive from Manchester, York and Sheffield, Cleckheaton is the UK’s most accessible golf course, located right next to Junction 26 of the M62, south of Bradford. We regularly welcome visitors from other Yorkshire golf courses and beyond.

Cleckheaton Golf Club is a private members’ club with an active membership, friendly clubhouse atmosphere and a strong junior section.

Visitors are always made welcome. Choose from a varied clubhouse menu before and after your round. Our catering staff are famous for their mouth-watering dishes which are the envy of other clubs in the area.



After arriving in Cleckheaton’s ample car park make your way to the Pro Shop to confirm your arrival and tee time. If you are early enough there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy.

The clubhouse serves restaurant quality food and a choice of cask ales. The modern changing rooms are inviting and therefore don’t have a private members area.

Once ready, you can warm up in the nets and most importantly on the practice green in front of the clubhouse. The practice green is a great match of the greens on the course so is therefore a must before you venture out.

Once you have played your perfect round, celebrate by returning to the Clubhouse. You can enjoy a meal, drinks, a game of snooker or most importantly just rest in our comfortable MacKenzie Lounge.

Visit Cleckheaton Golf Club for your next Society Golf Trip or Open Competition. Alternatively, just enjoy a game with your friends, we’re sure you’ll have a great time.
