What's the best low cost option for a beginner in the South Leeds /Wakefield area?
In order of proximity to Leeds - Howley Hall, Normanton, Low Laithes, Wakefield GC, *Wakefield City, Waterton Park

All the others are pretty good. Have played and officiated at them all but Howley Hall is probably my preferred.
* Municipal - never been there

It's now part of Q Hotels. It was pretty dreadful when owned by Leeds CC but has improved significantly. The previous owners (De Vere I think) put a lot of money into it.
I depends if you want to be a member of a hotel course.

If you've got the money you could OWN your own. Bids to be in by this next week. 🤔🤔

I'm tempted. Do you want to go halves? Will £40 each do it? :LOL:.

Imagine, you set the holes how you want :unsure:. No par 3 over 150yds, no long par 4's. Dress code to be minimal, no block bookings of time slots for any section, BRS only :D, no visitors before midday, tea and coffee in mugs, not small cups. Ah, the little things.

It's a shame, as it's a nice course. We played there last year. It's a nightmare to find though, up a windy, narrow lane with barely enough room for one car to get by, never mind if you meet someone coming the other way!

Glad I didn't join on their point system!

It used to be a good club but has been going downhill for some years. But the course still decent.

Championship again, Leeds,
Hi all,

I currently live in Cheshire and I am a member of a local course. At the end of May I will be moving to Leeds - city centre, 5 mins from the train station.

Please could people recommend a club to join in the Leeds area. I will not always have a car to hand (living in city centre so not much need for a car) so a club that isn't too expensive to get to in a taxi would be ideal.

Used to play off 10 but slowly getting back into the game. Up for a challenging course.

Many thanks.
What have you tried so far then, matey?....... though the 2-ball situation must have made things rather difficult.
