Founded 1901

Birstall Golf Club is situated to the north of Leicester and enjoys magnificent views over the city, the hills of Charnwood forest, and to the east towards Rutland.

Birstall Golf Club is 6239 yards long with a par of 70 and standard scratch score of 71 from the men’s competition tees and is a delight to play, providing a fair and exciting challenge for any golfer.

There are superb greens and fairways with some very challenging tree-lined holes on a layout which is fairly easy to walk. The course and the facilities of the clubhouse ensure that members and visitors alike can enjoy a pleasant but challenging round and a friendly, sociable conclusion to their visit. Societies are most welcome at Birstall Golf Club and we are easy to find being close to Leicester.

An extra feature of the club is the Great Central Railway with steam engines pulling in and out of the station, adjacent to the course.

The Club Manager is available to assist with any information you require.


We are renowned for our excellent catering facilities.  We can cater for a simple breakfast bap before enjoying a round of golf to a wide range of packages for visiting Societies.  We also offer celebration packages for those special occasions.




We have reciprocal arrangements with 10 different Golf Clubs; these clubs allow our members to visit and play golf at greatly discounted rates.
