Halifax club defies recession
Halifax Bradley Hall are hoping to build on the huge success of 2011
While the majority of the golf industry feels the pinching of the purse strings during times of economic downturn, Halifax Bradley Hall is breaking the mould and business is booming.
The new board returned the club to profitability in 2011, thanks to a massive 69% increase in visitors and a whopping 130% increase in competition entries.
New caterers and a house manager are also helping Halifax’s resurgence. The extra money will go straight back into the club in the form of clubhouse renovations and course improvements.

The improvements have already lured some of the area’s best golfers back to the club and they hope to form a strong scratch team for the forthcoming season.
They will be spearheaded by Andy Whitworth, who won the Halifax and Huddersfield District Union Matchplay Championship for a record 11th time in 2011.
They now hope that good news will travel fast and that they can continue to attract new visitors and members for the 2012 season.
