Following a two-year multi-million pound investment programme, Leeds Golf Centre has been transformed into one of The North’s finest all-round golf facilities. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013, the venue is seeking to capitalise yet further on its new-found reputation – both as the self-proclaimed ‘home of modern golf’ and as a vital component in North Leeds’ wider golfing proposition.
In addition to the new Wike Ridge course, the facility also boasts a unique 12-hole par-3 course. Perfect for beginners and those seeking to hone their iron play and short game, ‘The Oaks’ also features USGA-spec greens and tees like its better-known sibling and is prepared to the same exacting standard by expert greenkeepers.
Leeds Golf Centre is particularly proud of its market-leading Academy and associated practice facilities which include a floodlit/covered driving range and several very well prepared outdoor areas. Several highly regarded PGA professionals provide group lessons and private tuition to players of all ages and standards, with two FlightScope swing studios giving the facility a sophisticated edge versus rival driving ranges.
Significant sums of money have also been channeled into totally refurbishing and re-stocking the Pro Shop, where customers can now purchase a variety of market-leading golf fashion brands as well as a wide selection of all the established hardware manufacturers. Boasting better value pricing than any established high street retailer on gents, ladies and juniors ranges – as well as a high-end custom fitting, club repair and re-gripping service – the LGC Pro Shop is now regarded as North Leeds’ premier golf store.
