The Golf Courses

Hexham Golf Club
A traditional parkland course on fast draining land on the south side of the River Tyne, Hexham Golf Club is a tough enough test of golf to regularly host County events, yet at 6,312 from the medal tees it is enjoyable for club golfers of all standards. The greens are regularly amongst the best in the County, and the views over the confluence of the North and South Tyne and surrounding countryside are stunning.

Slaley Hall Hotel, Spa and Golf Course (Hunting Course)
The Hunting Course is the superior layout at Slaley, and has been recognised for many years as an official PGA Tour venue, having hosted the Great North Open. Dave Thomas’ design measures over 7,000 yards from the championship markers, and has some formidable holes. The course winds its way through towering trees and banks of beautiful rhododendrons, and golfers will be faced with many different challenges, where shaping the ball and being creative is certainly an advantage.

The signature hole of the resort is the Hunting’s 18th, a tough par-4 where you must thread your drive between the monstrous trees on the right, and the meandering stream that skirts the left of the fairway. After a good tee shot, golfers are still left facing a long uphill approach shot to a severely sloping green, on what is one of the best par-4s around.

Matfen Hall
Located near to Hadrian’s Wall in West Northumberland, Matfen Hall Hotel is set in 300 acres of beautiful parkland. The 19th Century Gothic style Stately home is a grand building overlooking the golf course. The golf course offers and challenging and wonderful golfing experience for all levels of players, in addition to the championship course, the resort offers an additional 9 holes and 9 hole Par-3 course and a fitting finale to our Hadrian’s Wall HIO Pairs Tournament

Celebrating 1900 years of Hadrian’s Wall 

Witness the stunning views, explore natural wilderness and become immersed in the history while visiting Hadrian’s Wall and Housesteads Fort.

Hadrian’s Wall, an epic structure, kept the unwanted out and the welcome safe. Making use of the natural Whin Sill escarpment, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the Roman Empire’s best-maintained outpost in northern Europe.

Nestled within the Northumberland National Park, it really is quite a treat. There are invigorating walks and breathtaking landscapes.

Venture alongside Hadrian’s Wall to Milecastle 37 and the famous Sycamore Gap, taking in the sights as you go. It’s a real testament to the Romans, as well as their planning, tenacity and power.

Head to Housesteads Roman Fort for a real insight into Roman military life and discover the past behind the archaeological remains, using the stone walls as a guide around the village south of the fort and envisage the different chambers and rooms. Plus, you might just see some of the oldest toilets around.
