Stunning, mature course. Lovely set up and stunning, quick greens. Great challenge, some of the holes really make you think your way around.

Very well run winter series @ £30

Tough winter test, can get wet in places and don't talk to me about leafs and lost balls just of the fairways :-(

£30 inc bacon cob and coffee and £500 top prize, greens in great shape and ironed in November :-) not a bad roll all day. 18th was like crazy golf 15ft putt and managed to de green it lol.

36pts won the day shows how tough this course is with no par 5s

Very good condition, reasonable course

Course very well maintained and reasonably interesting. Worth playing at the member's guest rate. We played on weekday evening and had pretty much clear run at the course

Accuracy the key!

Played the Leicestershire as part of a society. Greeted by the staff who were all courteous in providing food and coffee. The club professional gave us the low down on the 'dos' and don'ts. The course itself was in great condition, with the greens all running true and fast. The fairways were in good condition, word of warning the 1st cut is thick and slightly longer than you expect hence the accuracy is needed off the tee. No par 5's but some excellent challenging par 4's. The only negative would be there was a lack of sand in some of the bunkers. Thoroughly enjoyable - society rate ?35 incl food - normally ?50 per visitor - unfortunately not a course i will rush back too - cant really think of a memorable hole.

I was invited to play in a charity match at this venue and enjoyed the day. The course condition should have been better as green fees were expensive for the quality of the course.

Difficult to judge a course in February when it's muddy and wet. Greens in good condition considering and I've played it in better conditions when it's been a pleasure.

The greens at the Leicestershire are in superb condition and are the best any of our group had played anywhere this year. An interesting parkland course with many trees, so it definitely pays to keep it on the fairway.

If you enjoy playing on a course that's well looked after in all weather conditions then this is the place to play. A challenging course with immaculate greens. Excellent facilities and a welcoming clubhouse. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

I have been a member at The Leicestershire for around 35 years, so with so many other courses around I must rate it highly - which I do!
The course is always in excellent order, particularly the greens, which are superbly smooth and in play virtually all the year round - if they are not, you can bet that we have had a long spell of terrible weather. No par 5s, but I challenge most of you to get up in 2 on at least 3 of the holes.
Good Clubhouse, very friendly long serving staff, excellent food and facilities.
If you are the type who just plays, and leaves, you are missing something.
Highly recommended. John C

Played on Sat, Aug 30, through the James Braid association. Good shop, very friendly staff and an excellent clubhouse. The course itself was in excellent condition with some really interesting holes, long sweeping dog legs to narrowish tree-lined fairways. One or two interesting lay-ups or risk and reward approaches. My wife and I both play off 19 and found it a good test without being over difficult - 36 points/33 points in her favour. Very enjoyable

Played here for the first time ever. The course was in fantastic condition and the greens were immaculate (and very speedy on the down hill putts indeed). Unfortunately i didnt get time to use the club facilities due to rushing back home for the start of the ryder cup (so Im sure you can all forgive me for that !! :-) also that is the only reason I have given it a good rating as I cannot really rate it).
The course has no par 5s but some very long par 4s - theres a monster 199yard par 3 as well.
Bunkers were in fab condition as well.
Overall Im really considering joing here .....
