The Event

Mottram Hall Golf Club

LEEA Golf Day 2019

View from the 3rd hole

The championship golf course at Mottram Hall was designed by renowned course architect, Dave Thomas, who also designed the Brabazon course at The Belfry. With its manicured fairways, strategically placed bunkers and guarded greens, the course offers an exciting challenge to golfers of all abilities. It’s a fitting venue for this year’s LEEA Golf Day.

Signature holes are both long Par 4s with plenty of obstacles to avoid. The 13th, stroke index 1, is a giant of a hole that requires long accurate hitting up an ever-rising fairway and even the slightest error can lead to a double-bogey. The 17th is arguably one of the best and most picturesque doglegs in the North West where only a long accurate drive from an elevated tee allows an approach to a tricky two-tier green. With water on the right, thick rough on the left and a stream cutting through the fairway, care must be taken with every shot.
