Popular facility is set to become UK headquarters of world-renowned academy
LEEDS Golf Centre has today announced a new long-term exclusive partnership to become the UK HQ of the Leadbetter Golf Academy.
Leeds Golf Centre has been chosen to become Leadbetter’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 senior Leadbetter pofessional, Chris Parker, who has been with the academy since 2003.
The Leadbetter Golf Academy, established in 1983, offers world-class tuition in over 25 locations, spanning Europe, the USA and Asia. The world's No.1 golf instructor and coach to countless PGA Tour, European Tour, LPGA and Champions Tour players, David Leadbetter - 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 titles and over 100 wins worldwide.
David 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. This fact, coupled with the fantastic redevelopment of Leeds Golf Centre in recent years, means that there could be only one venue for us to create a really special golf academy.
“Our values and those of Leeds Golf Centre match up well and we are looking forward to putting top instruction on the map in Leeds.”
