We are delighted to welcome Ellie Robinson to the Leeds Golf Centre team

Posted on: September 3rd, 2015 by Lauren Simpson No Comments


Ellie Robinson joined us a few weeks ago and many of you will i am sure have already met her.

Ellie learnt her golf at Middlesbrough GC (Brass Castle) under the watchful eye of Pat Smillie and quickly progressed into a formidable player. Ellie won the 2012 Yorkshire Championship and was also Yorkshire Captain in the same year. Ellie was also a full England International. Ellie turned Pro in late 2012 off a handicap of +3 but suffered a serious back injury in early 2013 which meant she would have to have a full year out of golf recovering. Ellie decided to start her PGA course during this time and is now entering her second year. Ellie has started playing again and has completed a few 9 holes but is taking it slowly, she hopes to play a full 18 before the year is out.

Ellie has made a big impression on us in a short space of time and we are delighted to have her as part of our team here at LGC.

The world’s most recognised golf instructor, David Leadbetter, came to Leeds Golf Centre

Posted on: August 4th, 2015 by Lauren Simpson No Comments



22nd July


The world’s most recognised golf instructor, David Leadbetter, came to Leeds Golf Centre to provide the lesson of a lifetime to 15 fortunate golfers.

Leeds Golf Centre has been the UK home to the prestigious Leadbetter Academy since 2013 and it was David’s first visit to the home of modern golf in Leeds.

15 attendees joined Leadbetter for the day, who provided unique tuition in the same way he did for the likes of Nick Faldo, Greg Norman and Ernie Els.

The day kicked off with an engaging presentation on his most recent book named ‘A Swing’, which was the first to be presented in the UK. This also gave the group a chance to receive a signed copy of the book. The group were then able to perfect their swing in a group session followed by an afternoon BBQ.

Nigel Sweet, Operations Manager at Leeds Golf Centre, commented on the success of the day: “The day was fantastic and it gave the select group a once in a life-time opportunity to meet and learn from the legend that is David Leadbetter. The session was an impressive insight into his ‘A Swing’ and no doubt we’ve improved a few golfers from his visit.”

The Leadbetter Golf Academy provides golfers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn from world-class instructors.

The academy is offering all new customers a 40 minute lesson for just £20, contact chris.parker@leedsgolfcentre.com to book.

Tour De Yorkshire 3rd May – Disruption to travel to Leeds Golf Centre

Posted on: April 28th, 2015 by Lydia Eustace No Comments

tour de yorkshire_edited-1

Stage 3 of the Tour De Yorkshire begins on Sunday 3rd May, starting in Wakefield and finishing in Leeds. The route is 167km long and will pass through some of Yorkshire’s stunning and iconic natural scenery. While we are extremely proud that Leeds is hosting the climax of the Tour, the event route will pass very close to the golf centre and there will be some disruption on the day as roads are closed.

Wigton Lane, Wike Ridge Lane (from Wigton Lane to Shadwell Lane), Roundhay Park Lane and the Ring Rd (from Roundhay Park lane to the A58 roundabout) all form part of the event route and will be closed from 3pm to 5.30pm.

If you intend to visit Leeds Golf Centre around this time, please plan ahead and take an alternative route.

Please check the detailed map of the event route on the offical letour website.

Rabbits April Update

Posted on: April 7th, 2015 by Lydia Eustace No Comments


I am so naive! I thought there were only 4 seasons we ever experienced in this country. Not a bit of it! We all experienced at least 10 in the space of a few hours with a very unnerving lull in a particular squall before we were battered even more by hail and force 12 gales.

At one point during the front 9 I half expected to get the call that the course was closing or that those who went out first had made an executive decision to make it a 9 hole comp. Martin, Dave Kerns and Brian fought bravely on and led another 2 groups in before myself Dave Higgins and Dave Varley well and truly brought up the rear with the 2 groups in front deciding they’d understandably had enough and had walked in.

As Tony and Jeff had at the last minute been required to play with a virtual player I had very generously (it turned out) given them 2 points guaranteed each hole, which in those conditions turned out to be a killer for the rest of the field. Save to say they walked it, with a fantastic 78 points followed some way behind in second place by my own team on a still impressive 71. Oh how I wish I’d only given them 1 point a hole!! The other teams that finished didn’t disgrace themselves either finishing just 1 and 3 points further back. All I can say Tony and Jeff is that you owe Denis a pint!! “Hi Denis, hope you’re feeling better!!” (He said through gritted teeth).

Tony and Jeff won a hat and some balls and Martin (winning both nearest the pins) won a glove and balls. Good effort Martin in those conditions just hitting the greens. I know you were a long way off but no-one else did as far as I could tell.

But seriously…as a few of you had left by the time I struggled in I didn’t get the chance to thank every one of you for supporting the event and to say how much I am looking forward to my last season as Rabbits captain.
