Andy Holmes invited Good Times to come and see the hidden gem that is Lightcliffe Golf Club.

Having never known the club was indeed open to non-members I ventured to see what was on offer and was pleasantly surprised to find such a nice venue hidden away.

Blink and you may miss the opening to the club but once you drive in there is a clubhouse to the left a nine hole golf course on the right and ample parking in front of you.

The new marketing manager Andy ushered me into the newly refurbished function suite which has a nice modern cosy feel and a vista across the course.

The club has around 300-400 members and as well as hosting club events they open their doors to non-members for weddings, birthday celebrations, sportsman’s dinners and any other event you can think of. Having onsite facilities they can offer three course meals to carvery or a buffet.

“You’re the customer and it’s your event so we are happy to sit down and tailor to your needs and wants,” confirmed Andy.

“Rates for events are all negotiable depending on your style of meal. We can seat around a 100 people and the room is private as the members have a separate bar and entrance,” said Andy.

Something new the club is looking to launch is corporate meeting facilities and team building events.

Andy added: “A company could come and enjoy a breakfast meeting have a round of golf then finish their meeting over a late lunch for example.

“It’s a great facility we have here and we want to let people know that you don’t have to be a member to come and enjoy it.”
