Golf Courses at Slaley Hall

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 9th, 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.

Priestman Course

The Priestman is the second course at Slaley Hall, but it should not suffer an inferiority complex. Designed by PGA Chairman Neil Coles, this is a great addition to the resort, making it one of the few to have two genuine championship courses. Opened in 1989, the Priestman has matured into a tournament venue, with some superb holes, and also fantastic panoramic views across the Tyneside Valley.

Slaley Hall's extensive practice facilities offer visiting golfers the perfect chance for some tuition to sharpen up their skills.

From arrival onwards, staff were helpful and attentive. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable in every way. The facilities catered for everyone's needs and offered lots of variety. The only criticism would be that the furnishings and the food in the Claret Jug, where we ate left a lot to be desired and could easily be brought up to a standard worthy of the rest of the hotel.

Booked 3 weeks prior to trip and requested 2 buggies for both rounds as my father in law has 2 hip replacements and struggles to walk course . Upon arriving at pro shop 45 minutes prior to tee off was told no buggies available as there was a corporate day and I quote “it’s been booked months and there’s nothing I can do” to cut a long story short was told in an abrupt tone that it’s up to my agent to request buggies and they hadn’t and if I wanted to wait until 11:00 am (it was 9:15 am at the time) there might be some available. For a 4 star hotel the staff both in pro shop and clubhouse could do with some customer service training . Hotel, rooms, food and golf courses lovely but staff not great unless your a big corporate booking I guess .

We particularly liked the separate snug rooms (between Hadrian's Brasserie and the bar) where you could sit quietly with a drink. We believe a games room somewhere in the hotel would be a good addition with a snooker and/or pool table and a table tennis table perhaps. We found all the food and drink of a high quality, however we would like to see a wider selection of beers available. There was a choice of just 3 lagers and 2 ales across all the restaurants and bars.

Again a great course in superb condition which was only surpassed by the amazing views. Very different to the Hunting which made the weekend even more enjoyable. Again a lack of toilets for the ladies would be the only criticism. The round was slow due to a group in front of us who were late off and not moving as fast as they could until the course marshall intervened and they sped up.

Another almost great course. Hilly with some longer walks between green to tee. As per my huntings review greens not their best , so with totally grassless areas with grooves yet the green keeper puts the hole next to it when there’s a massive green part empty. Again all bunkers need at least 3 inches of soft sand applying to them.

The course layout is above average with the fairways tea boxes and general length of grass from fairway second cut to rough or on point. However the greens in particular were very poor and were probably suffering as a consequence of a very long hot summer however there were too many bare patches with long grass making the ball jumping around. The bunkers were not in very good condition either with very inconsistent amounts of sand. But all in all playing with five friends it was fun And we would most certainly play the course again.
