Leader Board is a series of golf simulation video games that was developed by Bruce and Roger Carver, and published by Access Software.

Leader Board, the first game in the series, was released in 1986 and included four different water-based courses. It was well received, being rated as 97% overall by Zzap 64 magazine and being prized with their "Gold Award". It was also highly rated by other magazines, with Your Sinclair rating it 9 out of 10, Sinclair User giving it five stars, and Crash rating it 80%.

Leader Board Tournament, released the same year, was a series of expansion disks each containing four new courses.

The second game in the series was Leader Board Executive, which was released in 1987 and contained new landscape and course features, such as trees and bunkers. Despite these additions, the game was less well received than its predecessor, being given an overall rating of 72% by Zzap 64 magazine.

World Class Leaderboard was the last game in the series and included four courses; Cypress Creek, Doral Country Club, St Andrews, and the fictional Gauntlet Country Club. Three course expansion disks were later released. Special features included in this final version included a course overview (overhead view), the punch shot, a printable score card, and a course editor which allowed changes to be made to the existing courses. It was considered a vast improvement on Executive, being given a 94% overall rating by Zzap 64 magazine, and 9 out of 10 by Your Sinclair
