Leeds Cup is coming home!

THE iconic Leeds Cup, professional golf’s oldest trophy won by Birchwood’s Phil Archer for the second time last year, returns to its spiritual home Cobble Hall after an eight-year absence on May 15-17.

And that’s great news for the club that nearly went into administration in 2012.

“We did a complete review of our operations and we have since increased membership by 30 per cent and 85 per cent in visitors,” said secretary Paul Mawman.

“It’s been a significant turn-round which we could not have done without the loyal support of the members.

“We’re delighted that the cup is coming home and we’ve been endorsed by the PGA. We are also the only club that can use the Leeds crest. Staging the competition here also helps our marketing initiatives.”

PGA North secretary Jonathan Paine revealed: “The club were very keen to stage the Leeds Cup again based on the huge success they enjoyed the last time they hosted it.

“The 36-hole tournament will be preceded by a pro-am and if everything goes to plan we expect it will continue at Cobble Hall on a regular basis.”
