Close House

Opened by Lee Westwood in May 2011, the design of The Lee Weswood Colt tips its hat to the great English golf architect Harry Colt (who designed Wentworth, St Georges Hill, Sunningdale and Swinley Forest among others) While nothing is copied directly, the rectangular tees, the bunker forms, and the variety in Par threes are all features conceived from the distilled themes of this most brilliant architect.

The land on which you play is unique in many ways. Close to Newcastle, this Northumberland valley on the banks of the River Tyne is a property blessed with thousands of years of history. While Close House itself may date back only 250 years, prior to this the Roman Army roamed this land. In fact, the world famous ‘Hadrians Wall’ almost abuts the course itself. Don’t let that put you off, though. This golf course aims to produce the most exciting range of thrills for every level of golfer, and it requires your utmost attention.

Lee Westwood commented, “I think Close House is a perfect members course that has the capability of staging a major tournament in years to come. For a brand new course it is in great condition. The greens are of a very high quality and I am looking forward to going back and playing it again”

We are proud to be the official venue of the 2017 British Masters on the European Tour.
