Leeds is well known for its array of heathlands north of the city; Alwoodley and Moortown are ‘Top 100’ courses which are backed up by the cultured likes of Sand Moor, Moor Allerton and Cobble Hall.

And just a few miles west of this batch of courses around the A61 is another excellent inland course which has been impressing visitors and societies for decades.

Established in 1905, Woodhall Hills is situated in between Leeds and Bradford near the charming village of Calverley.

The course now stands in over 130 acres of land and affords wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.

Here are two of my favourite shots from a recent shoot there. The first was simply a test before the sun started setting but the second was much more like it, with glorious golden light.

The client was highy impressed and used the photos on their new scorecard, advertising and website.
