6 reviews of The Leicestershire Golf Club
I have played here a number of times. The course itself is always in good nick, the greens are fantastic! It's everything else that lets this course down. Firstly, one cannot access the changing rooms unless you are a member and they have an antiquated rule whereby one cannot change their shoes in the car park. Secondly, the bar downstairs is never open. Thirdly, if you do manage to get into the clubhouse you cannot get a coffee in the morning as the bar is never open. There are no par 5's. There are a number of moles that are too similar for example, the 11th and the 15th. The 5th and the 16th. My favourite hole is the 9th, a cracking par 4.
I have to say I find some of the comments below rather odd - I returned to The Leicestershire as part of a society having been a junior member there more years ago than I care to remember, and everything about the place was first class. The staff are as welcoming as they come, the catering excellent, and the course was in stunning condition. Yes, there are a lot of par 4's, but I would not in any way describe them as repetitive, and the lack of par 5's in no way detracts from this course which justifies its reputation as one of the county's premier venues. And at £55 for breakfast on arrival, two rounds of golf, lunch and a 3 course evening meal, it represented excellent value for money. Sorry, but anyone who begrudges paying £35 a round to play a course such as this clearly wants something for nothing.
Disappointing ! Thats the word that describes The Leicestershire, The name gives it something of grandeur, the price too at £35 for a round of golf, it is far too excessive as it does not come close to some of the courses in the area, Yes there are a few nice holes but the round becomes very boring with par 4 after par 4, the greens were in good condition however I felt the rest of the course including fairways was very untidy for what is supposed to be Leicestershire's best course.
Played on a lovely day in April 2006. A course without any par 5's but plenty of long par 4's! It really was in beautiful condition. The greens and fairways are the best I have ever come across in Leicestershire. Noticeable was the attention to detail in all areas of the course. It made my own look pretty scruffy in comparision. I thoroughly enjoyed my round, and though it could be argued there is not much variety in the course. It could also be said the maximum has been achieved with what is available. I would highly recommend this as the premier course in Leicester.
Very nice club with superior club house and facilities. Although I had a good time, the experience was let down by the course. The course has no par 5's and is mainly par 4's which makes it a bit repetitive. I also found the continuous 'washboard' ripples on many of the fairways tiresom. Saying that the course was in excellent condition and the latter 9 holes were more enjoyable open parkland style golf with mature trees and open fairways. At £35 for a mid week afternoon round it felt a bit steep, but the food and drinks in the club house were excellent value. Paying for the round was cash or cheque - no cards! There is also a good web site with a stroke saver that can be down loaded. A course that I won't be rushing back to play - pity since a few tweaks would elevate it into a prime course.
A really nice club with very friendly staff. The course was in excellent condition with greens being very true. The course is incredibly tight with no respite from tree lined fairways you may as well leave your driver at home. Bring plenty of spare balls as even the semi-rough can make it hard to find your tee shot! Accuracy is at a premium ! With no par fives this isn't the longest course ever but there are a large number of dog legs and the ninth in particular plays like a par 5. very enjoyable course.
