Experience golf at Leeds Castle
February 2, 2011

As Kent prepares to host The Open Golf Championship for the 14th time in 2011, now is the perfect time to get inspired by Leeds Castle's fantastic golfing opportunities.

Located approximately an hour's drive from Royal St. George's in Sandwich, Leeds Castle offers a scenic 9-hole, par 33 golf course with a combination of blind tees, strategically placed bunkers and medieval moat to provide challenging and rewarding holes from start to finish. Prices from £9.75 for 9 holes.

Golfing at Leeds Castle is a special experience. The pay & play course is open all year round, this delightful 2681 yard course was built on the 500 acre Leeds Castle Estate in 1924 for the Hon. Lady Baillie, the then owner of Leeds Castle.

In 1988, Neil Coles MBE, redesigned parts of the course. Nine years later, continued improvements to the course culminated in the creation of a brand new 143 yard, par 3 hole whose tee nestles beside the Leeds Castle moat with its abundance of waterfowl. The maturity of the parkland surrounding Leeds Castle provides both challenging and spectacular holes from start to finish.

Intervals of ten minutes between tee-off times, which can be pre-booked up to six days in advance, will mean that the course is rarely congested. Our Pro Shop is fully stocked for all your golfing needs. There are also changing rooms with shower facilities and refreshments are available.

Pay and play course, club & trolley hire available, golf societies and corporate golf days welcome. Golf Lessons can be arranged for individuals or groups of all standards with our teaching PGA professional. In 2011, family golf days will be new to Leeds Castle.
