HISTORY Originally founded in 1906 by Major W.H. Key at Water Fulford Hall, the Golf Club moved to its current site in 1935, after the land was identified as suitable for golf development, by leading architect and five times Open Champion, James Braid. The course was planned and constructed by Major Charles McKenzie, the brother and business partner of the now legendary Dr Alistair McKenzie who designed Augusta National and Cypress Point. The course and club house remain very similar to the original construction in 1935, however additional length added to the course over the years, and extensions and improvements to the clubhouse now provide the club with an historic feel which meets the demands of the modern day golfer.

TOURNAMENTS Fulford Golf Club boasts a great championship tradition, and has hosted many major amateur and leading Professional events over the years. The first leading amateur event was staged in 1954 when Fulford was asked to stage the Yorkshire County Championships. Since that date Fulford remains ‘on the rota’ for staging amateur championships and internationals. Professional Golf started at Fulford in 1971, when the Benson and Hedges tournament was founded. Tony Jacklin won that inaugural event and led the way for a host of leading professionals from around the world to play and win during the 23 years of European Tour events staged at the club. Please see the Honours Board for a list of winners at the club, however the list of those who regularly competed and came close to winning is just as impressive. Major winners Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Johnny Miller, Ian Woosnam, Bernhard Langer, Gary Player, Sam Snead and Jose-Maria Olazabal all played a major part in the history of the tournaments at Fulford.

TOURNAMENTS CONTINUED One the most enduring images in golf must be Bernhard Langer clambering up the ash tree on the 17th hole at Fulford to play his third shot to the green. To this day the shot is marked by a plaque on that same tree. Ian Woosnam, on his way to securing runner up position to Sandy Lyle recorded and still holds the course record with an impressive 10under par 62. This includes a European Tour record 8 consecutive birdies. The Benson & Hedges International was screen on the BBC and around the world, and was later replaced by the Murphy’s Cup. Major tournament golf left Fulford in 1992, when the European Tour had no option but to follow the ‘lure of the sponsors pound’ and the Benson & Hedges was staged at the Belfry among others. Fulford remains a Professional Tournament venue, frequently hosting National and Regional PGA Events. In 2006, to celebrate the clubs Centenary Year, the 18 holes on the course were named after the winners of the Benson and Hedges Tournament.

THE COURSE The course is regarded as one of the finest tests of inland golf, and is frequently graded in the Top 100 courses. Built on predominantly sandy heathland the course sustains an excellent surface all year round for golf. The course is flat and tree lined with heather and well placed bunkers providing the hazards. A reflection of the standard of the course is that the par is 72, (6864yards) with a standard scratch score of 74 from the Championship markers, a good challenge for all golfers. Please see the Score Card and Course Layout. For a course guide and pictures of individual holes visit the website
