About UK - Leeds Golf Tours & Breaks
Leeds Golf Breaks – a fantastic city for both golf and nightlife!
Leeds has developed so much over the last 10 years that it has everything to offer as a golfing break destination. With one of the most modern city centres, it offers numerous shopping opportunities at some of the countries leading retailers including Harvey Nichols, as well as the recently developed Trinity Centre and Victoria Gate.
In the evening the city comes alive and is full of restaurants and bars ranging from the old fashioned to the ultra modern. There is a vibrant nightlife with clubs offering all types of entertainment to keep everyone entertained.
As far as golf courses go, you are spoilt for choice with golf breaks in Leeds. The top two courses, Alwoodley and Moortown, would stand in comparison to the best that the rest of the country offers. Alwoodley is one of Yorkshire’s finest golf courses and regularly appears in any list of the top 50 courses in the UK. From the moment you arrive at the magnificent clubhouse you seem to soak in the atmosphere as you tread in the footsteps of past golfing greats. Designed by Alister Mackenzie who went on to also design such masterpieces as Augusta and Cypress Point, it’s a fantastic golf course.
Moortown also qualifies as a must-play golf club and is another brilliant Mackenzie design. The venue for the first Ryder Cup held in Britain it has hosted numerous tournaments since then and should be on everyone’s bucket list. In the same area as Alwoodley and Moortown, you can find yet another Mackenzie design the delightful Sandmoor Golf Course. Shorter in length but full of challenging holes that require strategy rather than brute strength it’s a gem. Moor Allerton is a 27 hole complex and was Robert Trent Jones first course that he designed in Britain. An undulating course with large and tricky greens it’s quite American in design and offers an interesting contrast to the other courses in the area. If they are the top four courses in the Leeds area, then there is no shortage of other fantastic courses in the area with Headingley, Leeds Golf Club and Scarcroft all worth factoring into any golf tour in West Yorkshire.
As one of the leading commercial centres north of London, there has been a rush to build hotel accommodation and virtually every hotel chain is represented here. From economy 2 and 3 star properties to high end 4 star you will not be short of choices offering quality accommodation.
