Pitch Marks

Please repair pitch marks
At The Leicestershire Golf Club we are privileged to play on our greens throughout the winter. We are seldom moved to winter greens and are the envy of many a club in the county. Can you please always remember to repair your pitch mark and remind your playing partner to do so, in the event they forget.
Please read "Repairing Pitch Marks" under "Course" on the club website.

The Leicestershire Win the First Division County Scratch Team League

The Leicestershire Win the First Division of the  County Scratch Team League

By winning the final match of the season 5½ - 2½  at Cosby on Thursday 18 August our team secured the Leicestershire & Rutland Golf Union first division title. The match was a ‘winner takes all’ contest. If Cosby won, or the match was halved, they would be champions. If we won, we would take the title. 

Cosby are a very strong side, led by David Gibson, who has represented the County first team a record 280 times. They have won the first division of the Scratch Team League in each of the last two years. 

We are also a very strong side, led by Team Captain, Phil Thomason who is no stranger to representative honours, having played for the County first team 85 times.  

Keenly contested the match was played in a tremendous spirit with the respect and camaraderie shown between the players of both teams. They know each other well from playing at this very top level over the years. 

Congratulations those who played at Cosby (from left to right) Marc Palmer, Jevann Parmar, Mark Birkenshaw, Phil Thomason, Tom Sherwin, Lee Woodcock, Tony Lord and Riyaz Ahmed and to those who played in other matches this season, Richard Binnie, Rihdwan Ahmed, Tom Flavelle and Mark Scarrett.

Beefy’s Charity Foundation Golf Challenge

21 July 2016

Sir Ian Botham and Shane Warne arrived by helicopter this morning to play Hole 5 of their 18 hole round around England. Sir Ian hit a huge drive down the first fairway at TLGC and walked away with a par! They and the 6 players with them were very pleased with the reception they received and were full of praise for the excellence of our first fairway and the quality of our green. Sir Ian and Shane signed cricket bats and other memorabilia before they left.
