We are delighted to welcome you to Willesley Park Golf Club.
Visitors, societies and private functions are always welcome to the course and clubhouse.
Our course is set in the heart of the National Forest, with stunning views of the Leicestershire countryside. A heath and parkland course set in 230 acres, it was first opened in 1921 and later remodelled by James Braid, retaining many of the key landscape features and natural terrain.
The course has undulating, tree-lined fairways with magnificent Oaks, Limes and Horse Chestnuts. Lengthy par 4’s, blind tee shots, testing greens coupled with elevation changes are sure to focus your attention if you are not already intoxicated by the many vistas. We have a range of risk and reward holes where you will find challenges to meet all abilities from the beginner to the low handicapper.
Easy access is via Junction 12 off the M42, the course entrance is to be found on your left as you approach the historic market town of Ashby de la Zouch.
You will find a wide variety of woodland wildlife including the occasional muntjac deer, but we hope the soaring buzzards and green woodpeckers are not the only birdies you encounter.
The website diary is updated daily or simply call our professional for booking and a friendly service. On the website, you will also find information on green fees, golf packages, available start times, social events, club competitions and application forms for all of our open competitions.
Our Professional, Ben Hill and his staff are on hand to help with all your golfing needs, with a well stocked and competitively priced pro-shop for equipment, apparel or just soft drinks and snacks.
Clubhouse Manager, Peter Burke and his staff will always endeavour to help provide your catering needs to make your visit as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
As Men's Captain, together with our Lady Captain, Janice Kelly, we would like to offer a warm welcome to all members, visitors, friends and guests to Willesley Park Golf Club.
We hope you enjoy your golfing experience and have a memorable day.
Very best wishes
Tony Hince, Men's Captain 2018

THANK YOU TO WILLESLEY PARK MEMBERS
On the 17th December at the Liquid Brass evening we were able to present our Charity funds to Headway UK and Headway Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Representatives from both were the guests of the Club and received cheques for half of the £12150 that you raised during our Captains year. This amount exceeded our expectations and we would like to thank you all for your support, help and of course your overwhelming generosity.
We wish you a Happy Christmas and the best of New Years.
