Exclusive Leadbetter partnership for Leeds Golf Centre

19/03/2013

Leeds Golf Centre has today announced a new long-term exclusive partnership to become the UK headquarters of The Leadbetter Golf Academy, arguably the most famous name in golf tuition.

The centre has been specifically chosen to become The Leadbetter Golf Academy's UK base after winning critical acclaim for its state-of-the-art teaching facilities and overall proposition in north Leeds.

The new Academy will be run by PGA Professional, Chris Parker, who has been with The Leadbetter Academy since 2003.

The Leadbetter Golf Academy, established in 1983, offers world-class golf instruction in over 25 international locations, spanning Europe, the USA and Asia.

All international golf academies are situated in attractive locations with outstanding facilities - Leeds Golf Centre being no exception.

The world's number one golf instructor and the Academy he founded - is known across the globe for its innovative and creative teaching techniques.

Over the past 30 years, The Leadbetter Golf Academy tour players have amassed over a dozen major Championship titles and over 100 individual worldwide tournament victories.

Commenting on the announcement, Leadbetter said: "I am delighted to begin what I know will be an exciting academy at Leeds Golf Centre. The area around Leeds is rich in golfing heritage and has a fine tradition of great players. Our values and those of Leeds Golf Centre match up very well."

Nigel Sweet, Leeds Golf Centre's Operations Manager, added: "We are absolutely thrilled to become The Leadbetter Golf Academy's UK headquarters - it's an incredible honour and something we are immensely proud of.

"The team here have worked tirelessly over the last few years to make Leeds Golf Centre what it is today and this announcement goes some way to rewarding them for their efforts. The new Leadbetter Golf Academy will be open to the public from April 1st, although early bookings can be made via the Pro Shop."
