HUDDERSFIELD Golf Club was created in 1891 - the height of the Victorian era.

But now, the Fixby club has entered the digitally enhanced 21st century by launching a new hi-tech website.

The site, which is at www.hudd, contains details of the club's history, plans of each hole, information on the club house and facilities, prices, competition information, dress codes and much more.

Sue Dennis, general manager of the golf club, said: "We had a website for about seven years but it needed completely revamping.

"It is very important to promote the club. The website is a way of attracting new visitors.

"A lot of players wanting to play different courses look on the internet first.

"The more information we give them, the better. Much of the information on this new site is downloadable, when it was not before. We are very pleased with the results."

The site has been designed by Armitage Bridge firm Chameleon Digital Media.

Chameleon is run by 30-year-old James Noon, from Netherton. Chameleon got the commission after Steven Hirst, the golf club's director of marketing, discovered them while researching local web design firms.

James said: "I was very happy to take on the project, as I live in Huddersfield and play golf from time to time.

"No doubt numerous business people are members of the course and so I hope to receive referrals to my own site from the website.

"The brief was to create a high class, eye-catching design for a high calibre golf course.

"I am very happy with the site and look forward to making further additions in the future. I shall be doing a photo shoot of each hole on the course during the spring. The photos will then be added to the site."

James set up Chameleon nine years ago. After studying graphic design and technology through school and college, he taught himself web design and worked as a graphic designer at a printers for three years. He said: "It was apparent to me during the mid-1990s that the web really would change the world and so I started getting into website design."

While many small web design firms have fallen by the wayside since the initial boom of the internet, Chameleon has gone from strength to strength.

James thinks this is because his business is not about creating something which simply looks good.

He builds very advanced websites but makes them easy for his clients to control , runs online marketing campaigns for clients and creates e-commerce websites - meaning clients can use them as trading tools, not just promotional devices.

James said: "I chose the name Chameleon as I was well aware that digital media is an ever changing industry and to survive I would need to adapt."
