Contact us on 01274 831215 Headley is located a 1000 feet above sea level on the West Yorkshire Pennines and was founded in 1907. It stands on the south side of the of the valley opposite Thornton village, birth place of the Bronte children. Headley, a short but challenging nine-hole course with a big welcome and plenty of fun to play and enjoy a great round of golf. Visitors are always welcome. Headley’s clubhouse has panoramic view down the Aire Valley to Selby and beyond and is available for functions hire. At just 4,864 yards off the white tees, you don’t have to be a Westwood with your driver, but you do need to be a pretty decent putter. The course is on two levels and is bisected by the viaduct, which is 120 foot high, 23 arch construction which was built around 1880 to connect to the Bradford, Halifax and Keighley Railway and is now part of the Great Northern Trail, used by walkers and cyclists. Standing on a tee underneath a giant railway arch is one of the most spectacular drives in the area. After the first two, the remaining seven holes have different tee positions, which alters the approach angle and club selection. The par four third becomes a par three on the second time round. Headley prides itself as one of the friendliest clubs in the district, and the most competitively priced in the District You won’t feel excluded as a member because weekend competitions are for drawn partners – simply put your name down and a playing partner is drawn out of a hat. The club takes an active part in the Bradford Union of Golf Clubs, with scratch, 8-15, rabbits and junior teams.
