Hole in one: Andrews Tiles cements its relationship with Leeds Golf Club

We're really pleased to announce that we're now one of the sponsors of Leeds Golf Club.

You’ll now see our name next to the par three 18th hole – which, as you would imagine, is adjacent to the all important 19th hole; we’ll drink to that!

 

Formerly known as Cobble Hall, last year it won the steward of the year accolade at the Club Mirror Awards, as well as being named one of the top 10 golf clubs in the country.

Not far from the club was where the first golf ball was struck in the Leeds district, on Soldiers Field, which is on the other side of Roundhay Park’s Waterloo Lake.

In 1890, those players and some others rented the horse pastures which now form the top nine of the present course. They played there until 1893 when they left and established a nine hole course on the low side of Wetherby Road, and established the Roundhay Club.

Six years later, several members met in the Gipton Wood Inn and decided to form a golf club, after obtaining the original lease on the present course and becoming the Leeds Golf Club. 

The famous golf architect Dr Alistair MacKenzie was a member between 1900 and 1910, and during that time he gave advice on bunkers and the layout of the course.

He has influenced the design of many courses including rival clubs Alwoodley, Moortown, Garforth, Tempole Newsham and forther afield St Andrews, Prestwick, Troon, Royal Melbourne and Augusta National.

Leeds Golf Club is now an active member of the Dr Alistair MacKenzie Society.
