A Rich History at Fulford Heath Golf Club
Designed by James Braid, 5 times Open winner and member of the “World Golf Hall of Fame”, and opened in 1933, this eighteen hole, par 70 course is just over 6,000 yards in length and presents a challenge to golfers of all standards.

The River Cole, three lakes and mature trees feature throughout the course. Particular favorites are the 12th hole where the gentle River Cole presents a constant challenge appearing on both sides of the fairway as a lateral hazard, whilst the elevated green of the par 3, 16th hole, is reached by playing over a stunning lake.
The subtlety of design and carefully managed maturity of the course offers rewards to the strategic golfer when approaching the greens by the best route, before tackling the subtle borrows of the greens established over years of careful manicuring.
One of the advantages of being a member at Fulford Heath is that not only can you play on a challenging, picturesque course but you also have access to any other course designed by James Braid at special rates, such as Aberdovey and Neath in Wales; Gleneagles, the Kings course and the Queens course in Scotland; and Tiverton and Oxford in England to name but a few.
