Pros

With a first-class panel of Academy coaches teaching absolute beginners to European Tour stars, Leeds Golf Centre customers are spoilt for choice. Our staff roster makes for impressive reading – members of our team have coached Ryder Cup players including Colin Montgomerie, European tour players, some have played for England or Yorkshire and all are fantastic ambassadors for Leeds Golf Centre and the game itself. 

Regardless of your standard or experience, tuition from a recognised PGA-qualified professional can be the difference between golfing success and relative failure. In addition to great value group lessons hosted on the driving range, Leeds Golf Centre’s one-to-one tuition customers enjoy golf lessons ‘the 21st Century way’ where every detail and feature of technique and ball flight is scrutinised, dissected and remedied during swing studio sessions. Contrary to misconceptions, this fantastic facility is intended for players of all abilities and not just single-figure golfers!
