50 years ago the McLeod Country Golf Club was formed. 

In 2018 we celebrate our 50th birthday and the achievements of our founding members.  Over the year we will be celebrating with a number of events including the planting of 50 trees and a Gala evening on the 22nd September 2018.  Work on the avenue of trees has begun with the first 30 now in the ground. Many thanks to the McLeod Gardening Ladies for their efforts.  All of the trees on the course, edging the fairways were planted by our early members so 50 years later we continue to carry on this tradition.
