Slaley Hall (Priestman course)

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Slaley Hall (Priestman 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. The newer Priestman course has a more open feel than its companion Hunting course, and lays down its own array of golfing challenges.

This expansive and rangy layout will accommodate big-hitters and strategists alike. Several water hazards and plenty of stylish bunkering will need to be carefully negotiated, while the generally good-width open fairways should inspire confidence from the tee; more so than on the often tighter and more challenging Hunting course.

From the Priestman course you'll enjoy expansive views over stunning Northumberland countryside, with the beautiful Tyne Valley much in evidence. If you are visiting Slaley Hall don't overlook this excellent golf course, even though it is generally regarded as second in line to the more renowned Hunting layout.

Slaley Hall Hotel & Resort 4-star
Slaley, Hexham, Northumberland NE47 0BY
+44 (0)871 222 4688

The original castle-like Victorian mansion, complete with 'defensive' battlements and once the centre of a glorious sporting estate, was much extended in the 1980s to create a large resort hotel and golf complex. Set in 1,000 acres of the finest Northumberland moorland and forest, Slaley Hall is now one of England's best known luxury hotel and golf resorts. 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.
