A planning application has been submitted for a £9 million expansion programme at Leeds Golf Centre near Leeds in Wike, which has been designed by Brewster Bye Architects.
Leeds based property and leisure company The Parklane Group, which acquired Leeds Golf Centre seven years ago, say the proposed scheme will create ‘a major new destination for golf tourism’ in the North.
The plans include a new clubhouse with a double-height glazed entrance space; a double-height driving range with state-of-the-art interactive facilities; and a new Centre of Excellence housing a sports bar. The development will also offer 37 eco-lodges for golfing breaks, all overlooking a newly created lake. Once complete, the scheme would create approximately 30 new jobs.
Chris Austin, managing director at Brewster Bye Architects, added: “These proposals would transform Leeds Golf Centre into a first-class destination for golfers, as well as offering a superb range of clubhouse facilities and accommodation that will benefit the local area and also appeal to non-golfers. This makes it a very exciting prospect for both Leeds and the wider region.”
