Created in the early 20th century by James Braid, five times Open champion and foremost Architect of his day, the layout of the course at Ogden has remained true to its original design, with only minor alterations being made by Dr. Alistair Mckenzie in 1912. Dr. McKenzie went on to design some of the greatest courses in the world, including the Augusta National, home of the US Masters, in partnership with the legendary Bobby Jones. Ogden's design credentials are therefore second to none. Eleven of the holes feature water hazards, often nestling in the bottom of steep gullies. Rough is the other main hazard, which although neatly and fairly graduated, can be pretty severe for the really wayward.

A superb way to go walking in Calderdale - The Calderdale Way is a 50 mile (80 km) walk exploring the hills, moors and valleys of Calderdale that recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
It is an ‘up and down’ journey with few level sections. However, the higher levels provide some exceptionally fine panoramic views. The main and link routes to the valley bottom are designed so that they can be completed in short stages.
The Calderdale Way encircles Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, following old packhorse ways across the open gritstone hillsides with sections of traditional stone causeway, passing through hillside villages and old mill towns on the banks of the River Calder.
There are numerous link paths which connect the Calderdale Way to the valley floor. There are medieval settlements at Lumbutts and Mankinholes, and Withens Gate, where the Pennine Way crosses. A short diversion along the Pennine Way takes in the popular walk to the 100ft monument, Stoodley Pike.
The full length of the route is 51.39 miles, with a total climb of approx 2,600 metres (over 9,000 feet) at a climb rate of 43 metres per mile. This makes a flat equivalent distance of 57.49 miles.
The long period of hot weather has meant there is an increased risk of moorland fires in Calderdale. Please take care when out and about in moorlands around Calderdale and West Yorkshire. You can find more advice here. The burning of moorland is not a victimless crime. If you see anything suspicious report it to crimestoppers 0800 555111. #moorlandfires @WestYorksPolice @West_Yorks_FRS

Anyone can learn to Ski or Snowboard and as one of the UK’s premier ski and snowboarding Centres, we pride ourselves in helping you to learn to the highest possible standard. There are two options. The first is to start with a group taster session to see if you like it or not? If you get the bug, we then have a 6 hour course that runs for three weeks to get you up and running and will get you snowploughing down the slopes. The second option is private lessons. These are tailored to your individual needs; you have your own instructor and the timing of the lessons is more flexible. All lessons include your skis and boots, so all you have to bring with you are gloves and appropriate clothing for the weather.
