Ryton Golf Club, founded in 1891, is located in the picturesque and historic heart of the Tyne Valley approximately 10 miles from the heart of Newcastle. A superb eighteen hole layout, the course is bordered by the River Tyne.
Stocksfield is the most picturesque golf course in the Tyne Valley. Play a round on the fabulous 18 hole par 70 course then enjoy a drink and refreshments on the balcony overlooking the course.
One of the interesting things about Hexham is that the first and last holes require some tough decisions and can decide what sort of round you will have. Even if you’ve started well the 18th hole can be in the back of your mind as you wonder whether risking trying for a birdie on the last.
Newcastle United Golf Course was originally designed by Tom Morris and has matured since its’ conception in 1892. Measuring just over 6600 yards from the medal tees and with a par of 72, the course has proved to be a challenging but fair test of golf and boasts some of the longer par fives in the area.
The great Harry Vardon was engaged to design the City of Newcastle course. In 1962 the course was changed however, much of Vardon’s influence can still be seen today in the course which is rated one of the best in the North East and has staged many county events.
Matfen Hall is sympathetically laid out on a classic parkland landscape. With 27 holes, the 6700 yard course incorporates challenging water features and unique obstacles. There is also a high quality nine hole par three course is ideal for the less experienced player.
Renowned as the ‘Augusta Of The North’. The Hunting Course at Slaley Hall is one that should be on every golfer’s bucket list. The Priestman stretches away from the club itself, offering golfers panoramic views of the Northumberland countryside.
Northumberland regularly hosts national and regional championships and qualifiers, including for the Open. Designed by world-renowned golf course architects Harry Shapland Colt and James Braid between 1898 and the 1920s, it offers the very best in British heritage course design.
Consett & District Golf course is an 18 hole, mature parkland course formed in 1911 and redesigned by Harry Vardon a few years later. A course review has recently been completed with the yardage now being 6083 yards. The course is set in 100 acres of the beautiful Derwent Valley on the county border between Durham and Northumberland.
Designed by Harry Fernie in 1922, Garesfield’s parkland course has matured into something very special and offers players of all abilities an experience to be savoured. The flora and fauna are everywhere and at certain times of the year, the course is awash with colour – Garesfield is a photographer’s dream, so don’t forget to take a camera with you!
