Alliss was born in Sheffield. He became a professional at the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club in South Wales, and his first notable professional win came at the 1920 Welsh Professional Championship. He finished in the top six at The Open Championship in 1928, 1929, 1931, 1932 and 1936. He spent some time working as a club professional in Germany, and won the German Open five times. He was later the club professional at Ferndown Golf Club in Dorset for 28 years, before retiring at the age of 70.
Alliss played in the Ryder Cup in 1929, 1933, 1935 and 1937. He was not eligible in 1931 as he was employed in Germany at that time and the Ryder Cup rules had changed to require British players to be living in Great Britain. His son Peter is also a professional golfer, golf writer and broadcaster, and played in the Ryder Cup eight times. The Allisses were the first father and son pair to play in the Ryder Cup, and so far Antonio and Ignacio Garrido are the only other.
Alliss died in Bournemouth at the age of 78.
