Leeds Castle Golf Course

It has been a golf filled April so far! After playing at Girton this past Saturday, Van and I stayed up watching the Masters last night. With the time difference, it can make for a very long night. I love watching golf on a Sunday afternoon and I usually take a nap about halfway through. Golf commentary is the perfect background noise for a nap! So watching it at night can be a challenge. But a big congrats to Bubba for the win! I just love watching his goofy open swing.

A few weekends ago we were able to play a round at Leeds Castle Golf Course. It was incredible to have to opportunity to play around a 1000 year old castle! The pro shop is situated on the back side of the castle, so when you arrive the castle cannot be seen. We headed out to the course expecting to see the castle but it didn't show itself until the 4th hole. But before we get to the views....let's check out this swing. Look at that form!!

Haha...just kidding :)


This stinker parred the first 4 holes and gloated the whole way
When we reached the castle view, we had to stop for a photo. It was so beautiful to stare down to the castle. I could just imagine the history that lied beneath the greens, the hundreds of years of royalty and knights wandering around the castle grounds. We actually played pretty well until the castle came into view. But who cares how we played?! It was GORGEOUS and that's all that mattered!!

If you play golf you must take the time to play Leeds. It was so beautiful and peaceful. The setting cannot be beat, nor the price. I couldn't get over how inexpensive it was. And there is a nice little pub for a pint and some grub after walking the course. We decided that there would be many excuses made to come back to Leeds Castle for a round of play :)

What's your favorite place to play?

  3. Those pink golf balls are kind of amazing!! I'm horrible at gold...unless you count wii golfing...which I think we should. Awesome pictures and I think I might be motivated to pick up the game if I had such an amazing backdrop to play in.

    1. Wii golf is so much fun! Yes, golf is definitely challenging....and the challenge is really against yourself which makes it so hard! I suck most days but its worth all of the beautiful scenery :)
