Academy Team up with Ignite Sports

Posted on: December 1st, 2014 by AJ No Comments

The Academy is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Ignite Sports. Duncan McCarthy of Ignite will now be based at Leeds Golf Centre and we look forward to welcoming his clients, many of whom compete professionally around Europe. Duncan will also be playing a key role in developing our Academy, especially junior development.

Duncan’s background is in sports psychology and fitness. He works with his clients on these two key areas which now gives us the complete package to offer our customers at the Academy all under one roof.

Duncan away from golf works with other sports people, including youth team and professional footballers. He has also recently started a brand new development programme with sports scholars at Ashville College.

We have a fantastic team of coaches at the Academy and with Duncan now being based here it gives the Academy a full complement of coaches in every aspect of this ever evolving game. It will be great to have him based here at LGC and the combination of his drive to improve and progress as well as ours at LGC should be exciting in months and years to come.

Improve your swing technique at the Leadbetter Academy!

Posted on: November 14th, 2014 by AJ No Comments

Joel Smith, student of Chris Parker, has been making fantastic progress in the last 3 weeks improving his swing technique and lowering his handicap from 9 to 7.7.

Here’s an update from a recent review session. “I worked hard on Setup, Balance and pivot throughout the swing with Joel. From this it changed his shoulder plane, swing direction and shallower club path and AoA.”

“Enabling him to strike the ball straight or when necessary hit a soft draw. I used Sam Balance Lab along with v1 video system.”

Now is the time to look at making technical changes ready for next season. If you are interested to see what we can do for you this winter then call Chris or one of the Leadbetter team on 0113 288 6000.

Winter golf at Leeds Golf Centre

A wintery scene on Wike Ridge Feb 2013

If you love golf and don’t like letting winter stop you playing, then choose Leeds Golf Centre – we’re the golf course that stays open for winter golf when others close!

The British winter is a tough time for golfers and golf courses alike, but those in the know choose Leeds Golf Centre for good reason:

1. Our good natural drainage has been boosted by both course treatments and new drain installations over the past few years

2. Our course construction means that our greens cope well with the harsher conditions meaning you never have to play on winter greens

3. We’ve built new buggy paths around the whole course meaning that you can always use your trolley (with winter wheels) or, better still, you can treat yourself to a buggy any time of year!

4. We think our greens team are second to none.


Here are a few reviews that you can find on GolfShake and comments on Google in the past few weeks:

  • “Played this course regularly and would recommend for golfers of all abilities. Always friendly staff and members too. Facilities such as the Driving Range and practice area are excellent. Definitely worth a visit.” (October 2014) – Simon D on Google+
  • “The course was brilliant and I will be playing again soon.” (Round played: Sep 2014 – Score: 92 Handicap: 28) – Tony C on Golfshake
  • “This course has changed. It’s now a very good round improved in all areas. The facilities are very good and the improvements are ongoing. There are some stand out holes and tees to test the best.” (Round played: Aug 2014 – Score: 96 Handicap: 20.9) – Rick P on Golfshake


Play golf & play it safe at Leeds Golf Centre whatever the weather!*

* Of course even we have to closed when we are under snow or dangerous conditions.

Lee Sharpe (ex England, Manchester United & Leeds United footballer) learns the Fluid Motion Factor at Leeds Golf Centre

Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by AJ No Comments

learn the Fluid Motion Factor at Leeds Golf Centre

Lee Sharpe came by to learn the fluid motion factor after commenting on how his head was full of swing thoughts, which he admitted was affecting his game.

Using the process of the fluid motion factor we were able to lessen his focus on the swing thoughts and get him to access his true potential.

After the session he has reported a much clearer mind and he is hitting the ball better than ever!

“I really enjoyed my lesson with Dan on the fluid motion factor. It was a refreshing approach to teaching-keeping it simple and uncomplicated. I found very quickly into my lesson that I was striking the ball as good as I ever have with no technical thoughts at all going thru my head. I’ve now taken the idea on to the course and it’s working very nicely, much to my mates disappointment!! Cheers Dan, for making this game  far less complicated than I was making it.”

 Bear in mind this was achieved without working on any of his technique!!

Why not take your game to the next level this winter by investing in a Fluid Motion Session with Dan Seaman
