The Leicestershire Golf Club founded in 1890 is a beautiful parkland course which stands to the south of the city, backing on to open countryside. Heavily treed and boasting the finest quality greens, the 6200 yard par 68 course challenges low handicap golfers whilst remaining suitable to golfers of all abilities. The course was extended to 18 holes in 1899 and in 1910 improvements by James Braid included a number of new bunkers. In 1936 the course was extended by Major Charles Mackenzie, brother of the legendary Alistair Mackenzie of Augusta National fame, and subsequently altered by C K Cotton. The unique and architecturally significant circular clubhouse commands superb views over the course and offers excellent facilities for entertaining, dining and relaxing. Enquires for membership are welcomed, subject to waiting lists. This welcoming private members club, with its highly praised course and dramatic clubhouse, offers visitors a most enjoyable and testing golfing experience.
