Up to Scratch Challenge

With the right tuition, you can learn to play golf surprisingly quickly – and what better way to prove it than by inviting a group of absolute beginners to start from scratch? You’ll work with the experts at the Leeds Golf Centre, the UK headquarters of the prestigious Leadbetter Golf Academy, to perfect your skills over 7 weeks and 14 sessions – that’s the equivalent of £750 worth of lessons.

Then it’s time to put your new skills to the test in the three-hole knockout challenge on Sunday 23rd July 2017. You’ll go up against your fellow beginners to see who’s come the furthest – and the winner will bag a year’s membership at the club worth £925. Last year, Craig Bull from Seacroft bagged first place, and he loved every minute of it, “The tuition was phenomenal and it’s been hugely rewarding to go from a complete beginner to a confident player in just a number of weeks. The challenge has changed my whole perception of golf.”
