Take a swing at winter blues and play a round or two of golf and enjoy lunch at “the loveliest castle in the world”, Leeds Castle, near Maidstone, Kent.

Golfing enthusiasts can make the most of the nine-hole mature parkland course and historic castle with its special winter 2000 golfing package.

A challenging round of golf, a two-course lunch in the 17th century Fairfax Restaurant and a visit to the castle’s picturesque grounds and formal gardens can be savoured.  The cost is £17 and will be available until 28 December.

Present buyers seeking something a little different for the golf lover should visit the Leeds Castle Golf Centre to add that touch of exclusivity and style.

A Christmas present package of three 30-minute golf lessons plus a one hour playing lesson is available with the castle’s own PGA Qualified Professional, Steve Purves, who can give advice from improving the golfing swing to putting.

Gifts can also be chosen from the extensive selection of Leeds Castle branded golfing equipment from golf balls to fleeces and bag towels as well as a wide range of top brands including Cutter & Buck, Titelist, Sun Mountain and Wilson.

And back by popular demand, the Christmas Three Club Competition tees off on Thursday 28 December.

Teams of three will compete for a variety of prizes specially selected from the golf shop. To add to the entertainment, each team member will have a designated golf club (an iron, wood or putter) and play alternate shots.                   

The Three Club Competition fee includes light refreshments as well as wine and mince pies.  Entry forms and further details are available from the Leeds Castle Golf Centre tel:  (01622) 880467.

Set in 500 acres of picturesque countryside, the golf course gives unique views of Leeds Castle and was originally built in 1924 for Lady Baillie, the last private owner of the castle.

A 33-par course, it was re-designed in 1997 by Senior PGA golf professional, Neil Coles MBE, and is available for the enjoyment of everyone as handicap certificates are not required.

Leeds Castle is easily reached by car from all areas of the South East and lies seven miles east of Maidstone. The castle is clearly signposted from junction 8 of the M20.
