Where2Golf says: 

Slaley Hall (Hunting course): Stately Slaley Hall (now a much extended Stay&Play resort hotel) is located just six miles southeast of the Northumbrian market town of Hexham. Here you'll find two excellent and contrasting parkland golf courses. Played over gently undulating terrain, the generally higher-rated Hunting course occupies a mainly woodland setting, with a lovely mix of mature pines, birch and rhododendrons skirting the fairways.

From the outset your game will be tested with dog-legging holes and others where water hazards threaten. Abundant space for wayward drives is often in short supply, with many tightish holes requiring accuracy from the tee and good course management thereafter. The Hunting's large greens, thickish rough and excellent variety of holes will challenge your game and hold your attention from opening drive to final putt. Add in the tranquillity and naturalness of the surrounding Northumberland moorland and forest, and a real golfing treat awaits any visitor to Slaley Hall.

Pleasant rural countryside views are enjoyed along the way, while both nine-hole loops close with tough and memorable par-4s. The signature par-4 9th, with a stream winding through the hole, is known as the "Sleeping Giant" for good reason. The wonderful final stretch starts with a deceptive uphill par-3 at 14, and continues around a moorland loop of holes to the challenging par-4 18th. Before your grandstand finish in front of the original manor house, you'll need to cross a plunging ravine on your second shot.

Did you know?

The Hunting course at Slaley Hall has hosted many top level tournaments, including several European Tour and Senior Tour events. For more details view Top Golf Tournaments at Slaley Hall.
| The golf course takes its name from Charles Samuel Hunting, the original owner of Slaley Hall. The castle-style building that was the Hunting's family home in the early 1900s, has been expanded considerably to create the Slaley Hall hotel. The 18th green on the Hunting course provides one of the best vantage points from which to appreciate the fine structure of the original Hall.
