Oakdale membership boom

Oakdale Golf Club is just one of the clubs to have benefitted from the recent golf boom and have welcomed over 200 new members since the start of 2020.

Club manager James Thomas said: “The really exciting part is the number of ladies, juniors and young adults who have taken the step to sign up for membership."

He added: “The most striking impact on our business in 2020-21 has been the change in attitude to golf and in particular the number of people who remembered they once enjoyed the game. With time on their hands and the chance to re-assess what is important in life, we have seen over 200 new members join Oakdale Golf Club since the start of 2020. 

“We are lucky we have history on our side - a course designed by Dr Alistair MacKenzie who also designed the home of the Masters, Augusta National. We have a fantastic location within the heart of Harrogate yet blessed with open views from our balcony. Add to that a House and Golf team dedicated to providing a memorable experience, we are in a great position to handle what comes our way.

“Whether you want to play golf on your own or in a group; you would like somewhere truly special for a celebration event, or you would just like to chill out in a relaxing environment within easy walking distance of the Harrogate Conference Centre, we would love to hear from WTY members and make you feel very welcome.”
