SOCIETY of LEEDS GOLF CAPTAINS



Patron:- Mr. Peter Alliss       2020-2022    Captain : Mr. Ken Lane

About us Welcome

There can be few  places in the country that can rival the Leeds area for quantity, quality and diversity of golf courses.

Golfers in this region can (and do) count them selves lucky to be able to play so many excellent courses on their own doorstep.

The SOCIETY of LEEDS GOLF CAPTAINS,  Not the first society, ( London and Liverpool predated Leeds,) was formed in May 1952.

The membership was restricted to Captains and past Captains  of associated clubs within six miles of the GPO building in Leeds city centre. ( now “The Restaurant Bar and Grill”)

The society has now grown and envelops  20 clubs, with substantially larger numbers of playing members.


In 2001, we were delighted to welcome Peter Alliss, as the Patron of our society. He was associated with  Moor Allerton G.C. for many years, 3 years as Professional.

Hewas recognised around the world not only for his playing record including “The Ryder Cup”  but more recently, for his informed and quirky golf commentaries. Sadly Peter passed away this week and we send our sincere condolences to Peter’s family.
