Leicestershire is a wonderful county for those who like the great outdoors and those like to learn about England's famous history and heritage. It is a passionate and proud place and one of the friendliest counties you're likely to come across on your golfing travels. Accommodation is easy to come by and there are a mix of hotels, bed and breakfasts and homely little guesthouses on offer to visiting golfers. Take it from us, and we should know, Leicestershire is not the type of place that is deserving of a fleeting visit. On the contrary, in order to get a real taste of golf in the county you'll need to spend a few days just soaking it all up.
The county is well known for its collection of golf courses, many of which have produced a few good golfers in their day. Kilworth Springs, a wonderful course in Lutterworth, is where two times British Amateur champion and Walker Cup legend Gary Wolstenholme plays his golf. Visitors are welcome on certain days so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. Charnwood Forest, designed by the great James Braid and the oldest of all the clubs in the county, will provide for a memorable afternoon's golf and should not be missed. Neither should the likes of Kirby Muxloe, Rothley Park and Six Hills golf courses.
