What we say
The Hawtree and Sons-designed Humberstone Heights Golf Club opened in 1977 and is an extremely popular as well as a fast-maturing parkland layout which offers outstanding value for money. It's a decent all-round golfing facility - there's also a 30 bay driving range and a nine-hole pitch and putt course on site.

Decent municipal, can be very busy and muddy in Winter. Be prepared to have a long round if stuck behind beginners. Overall best municipal in Leicester, though Western Park runs it close. Better players advised to use 2fore1 vouchers at any of the private clubs, for higher standard of course.
The course is well laid out and the driving range and pitch and putt are very good. The fairways are fairly wide and the course is generally forgiving. The main bad point is the poor drainage. After a few days of rain this summer about 60% of bunkers were full of water and the course had several areas of standing water. On the bright side, after some of the water dried up I found about 12 golf balls in a single round.
this is a nice l.ong course, its fairways are good and greens are well kept overall one of the best public courses in leicester
