This treasure of a golf course, sometimes known as ‘The Augusta of the North’ is one of two 18-hole, 72 par golf courses at the Slaley Hall Golf Resort.  Maintained to high standards, the Hunting Golf Course is host to many flagship golfing events.  Designed by Dave Thomas, the golf course has lush, sweeping fairways, streams, lakes, towering trees and many banks of plants, catching the unwary golfer out!  With USGA standards, the bunkers and tricky greens make this multi-championship hosted course a challenge to even the experienced golfer.


Designed by Neil Cole, the 2nd 18-hole golf course at Slaley Hall is set on higher ground than the Hunting Golf Course.  Crossed with streams and open to the wind, the Priestman Golf Course is like a moorland course, contouring to fit the natural layout of the land.  With stunning views of the Tyne valley and beyond, this course is ideal for all level of golfer.  The course is mature and maintained at a professional level, hence already being host to many European Tour events.
