|||Leeds Golf Club Course, entrance from Elmete Lane (Roundhay)
Image shows the driveway entrance from Elmete Lane to the Leeds Golf Club Course. On the left a sign orders cars to slow their speed. On the right the golf course is visible. The first golf in this area was played in 1890 when horse pastures were rented for a period of three years before the players moved on to form Roundhay Club on Wetherby Road. Leeds Golf Club was established in 1896 after a meeting was held in the Gipton Wood Inn. A decision was made to take out a lease of the land at an annual rent of £25. The horse pastures originally used by the previous golfers now form the top nine of the present Leeds Club Golf Course. The Roundhay Club merged with the Leeds Golf Club in 1900. The club is known locally as 'Cobble Hall'.
