LGC’s fortunes transformed by Parklane
In just 12 months, Parklane has transformed the facility as a result of an unprecedented multi-million pound investment programme. Rescuing Leeds Golf Centre from administration in February 2011, the company – better known for its estate agency, student lettings and property development businesses – has upgraded its golf courses, car park and outdoor landscaping, created a new Pro Shop and superb high-tech swing studios and refurbished its changing rooms and shower/ WC facilities.
With the recent opening of the stunning Nineteen Bar & Grill (pictured above) completing the club’s impressive array of indoor amenities, attentions have now focussed on the start of the golf season ‘proper’.
Nigel Sweet, Operations Manager at Leeds Golf Centre, commented: “The Pro Shop is thriving and bringing new visitors to the club yet it is our swing studios and market-leading Academy that are making the biggest waves amongst the local golf community. Together with our PGA-qualified professional coaches, we are making Leeds Golf Centre the number-one location in Yorkshire to learn the game and develop technique.”
“Over the last twelve months, our principal aim has been to provide Leeds Golf Centre with foundations that will continue to prove strong in the future. Thankfully, our jewel in the crown – the stunning re-modelling of our Wike Ridge championship course – will possess an abundance of such qualities when it is completed in early May. With six new water features, 40 new bunkers and almost 1000 trees having been moved from plantations into the course, we think the new layout will challenge some of its more illustrious near-neighbours.”
Leigh Tasker, Business Development Manager at Parklane, added: “We’re tremendously excited about Leeds Golf Centre’s future – even more so than when we acquired the business a year ago. Substantiating our claim as being ‘The Home of Modern Golf’ is something we’re all wholeheartedly committed to.”
