The course was planned and constructed by Major Charles MacKenzie, the brother and business partner of the now legendary Dr Alistair MacKenzie who designed Augusta National and Cypress Point.
Regarded as one of the finest tests of inland golf, the course is frequently graded in the Top 100 and is built on predominantly sandy heathland, which drains exceptionally well and provides an excellent surface for all year round golf. The greens, which were voted ''best on the European Tour'', remain consistent throughout the year, and the course drains well during the winter.
The course is flat and tree lined, with heather and well placed bunkers providing the hazards. A reflection of the standard of the course is that the par is 72 (6743 yards), with a standard scratch score of 74 (6900 yards) from the Championship markers, a good challenge for all golfers.
In recent years Fulford has undergone a significant investment programme which has seen improvement in both irrigation and drainage, additional strategic bunkering, new championship tees, and further investment into state of the art machinery providing excellent and consistent playing surfaces. One of the results of this investment is that the course is rarely closed, and often remains in good playable condition when other courses in the area are closed.
