Leeds Castle Golf Course - constructed in the early 1930's at the request of Lady Baillie the then owner of Leeds Castle. The course was designed by Sir Guy Campbell. A few changes have taken place but holes 2, 3,4 and 5 are originals. The US Ryder Cup team stayed at Leeds Castle in preparation for the matches in Southport and Ainsdale. Many famous golfers have walked these famed links.
