Close House


Enveloped by the wonderful Northumbrian landscape positioned close to the historic Hadrian’s Wall, the contoured fairways of the two 18 hole golf courses of Close House demand strategy, ingenuity and, most importantly, concentration. Close House became attached with former World number 1 golfer Lee Westwood in 2011 and engaged him to redesign the courses to meet 21st century demands. Westwood worked with Scott Macpherson, Golf Course Architect, who carefully planned the ‘Colt Course’ around the existing well established trees, lakes and vegetation to fit with an intended old fashioned design.

Since 2013, the further enhanced Championship standard course spans 160 acres of the Tyne Valley while Close House's ‘Filly Course’ is situated in the lower grounds of the estate itself, providing stunning views of the river. This course's undulating USGA greens provide a real test for a golfer's putting skills, but accuracy off the tee is paramount for good scoring. Having already held PGA professional events the course has proved fun but challenging to golfers of all abilities.

After an invigorating day of golf, guests may enjoy a contemporary dining experience at the No.19 clubhouse or even indulge themselves further by staying over night in the suite-style courtyard rooms of Close House.
