Job Specification - Manager


Horsforth Golf Club is a prestigious club situated in the north of Leeds adjacent to the Leeds/Bradford Airport. The course was designed in 1906 by world renowned Alister Mackenzie and set in a wonderful mix of heath and parkland with mature tree lined fairways, streams and rhododendrons.
