  • Leeds Golf Club 5

    Commonly known as Cobble Hall, Leeds Golf Club is home to an 18-hole parkland course situated on the north side of Leeds and is regarded as one of the finest clubs in the whole of Yorkshire.

    founded in 1896 it is the original home of the leeds cup, the oldest trophy in professional golf, holders of which range from harry Vardon to howard clark.

    Set in approximately 110 acres, our stunning course tests golfers of all ages and abilities. Measuring 6,115 yards from the white championship tees, the par of 69 is rarely beaten even in scratch competitions. Only four miles from the city centre and close to the leeds ring road, the course has a distinctly tranquil and rural feel with many of the holes commanding spectacular views of roundhay.

    leeds Golf club offers something for everyone - men, women, seniors and juniors, from experienced players to those who have never picked up a golf club before. We also welcome corporate members and golf societies who wish to visit our wonderful course and make use of the excellent clubhouse facilities.

    We have a relatively low number of full members compared to other courses which enables you to play at your time of choice on most days. if you like your rounds of golf to be both challenging and exhilarating and your welcome to be warm, sincere and one which will make you instantly feel at home, then leeds Golf club is for you.

  • Leeds Golf Club 7

    Interwoven in the history of the Leeds Golf Club is the story of the beginning of golf in Leeds. It was on the Soldiers Field at Roundhay that the first golf ball was struck in the Leeds district.

    in 1890, these players and some others rented the horse pastures which now forms the top nine of the present course of the leeds Golf club, or cobble hall as it is more affectionately known locally. They played there until 1893 when they left and fashioned a nine-hole course on the low side of the Wetherby road, forming the roundhay club.

    in 1896 several gentlemen met in the Gipton Wood inn and decided to form a golf club. They obtained the original lease of the present course from the local council at a rent of 25 per annum. after some deliberation, they decided to give it the name leeds Golf club. The two clubs at roundhay and leeds were merged in 1900.

    The famous golf architect Doctor alastair MacKenzie was a member of leeds Golf club between 1900 and 1910. During that time he gave advice on bunkers and the layout of the course. Doctor MacKenzie has influenced the design of many courses including St. andrews, Prestwick, Troon, alwoodley, Moortown, royal Melbourne and, of course, augusta National. leeds Golf club are active members of the Dr. alastair MacKenzie Society.

    in 1909 a substantial new clubhouse was opened, which is now fully modernised to cater for todays needs. The layout of the course changed in 1928 following the construction of the leeds outer ring road.

    Professional golf tournaments are always encouraged and in 1902 the then president of leeds Golf club gave the Professional Golfers association a trophy to be known as The leeds cup, to be played for annually.

    in 1938 the club hosted the Yorkshire evening News Trophy for the first time.

    Top quality amateur golf has also played a major part with The leeds amateur cup being hosted here since 1912 as well as The cobble hall Scratch since 1962. both are still played for every July and august to this day.

    in 2002 the club purchased the lease of the course from the local council, which now allows for the continual update, improvement and ongoing development of the course.

    The Leeds Cup was donated to the Northern Region of the Professional Golfers Association to mark their foundation by Mr Penrose Green, the former Lord Mayor of the city, on behalf of the Leeds Golf Club at Cobble Hall, of which he was President.

    it was first played for in 1902 and won by the legendary harry Vardon. Very few people at that time would have envisaged that The cup would still be played for to this day, mak
