From the club's web site:
Moortown has always held a richly deserved reputation as one of the country’s finest Championship Golf courses. Originally designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, Moortown is set in 175 acres of dramatically contrasting mainly level woodland and moorland.

Moortown is rightly celebrated on two fronts, firstly as the venue for the inaugural Ryder Cup (1929) played on British soil, but more importantly as the first contracted design job won by Dr. Alister MacKenzie. Having helped establish the nearby Alwoodley Golf Club, MacKenzie started work at Moortown in 1908 and his initial advice was to start by building a par three hole to help attract members and investment in the fledgling club. The par three he built first was labelled Gibraltar, and it remains one of the most outstanding short holes anywhere in the world.
