Opened in 2011, the Lee Westwood Championship Colt course (named after English Golf architect Harry Colt) is set in almost 200 acres of beautiful Northumberland countryside close to Newcastle upon Tyne. This 18-hole European Tour venue was voted one of the top 100 courses in the UK just one year after opening and is today the only course in North East England to hold that accolade.
It would be fair to say that this course has been deliberately designed so that it will not give up its secrets easily. Indeed, the first time a player will be at a disadvantage to the most seasoned practitioner by perhaps several shots. So, the Lee Westwood Colt shall reward you for your powers of observation and willingness to return. Whatever the season, the rugged beauty of the Tyne Valley in Northumberland never fails to take the breath away.
The 18-hole Lee Westwood Filly course is situated in the grounds of the Close House Estate, providing stunning views of the River Tyne Valley. Matching the presentation of the Lee Westwood Colt course, the Parkland layout was re-designed and re-opened in 2013, and provides a lovely alternative to the Championship layout of its sister course.
It now has 18 USGA specification greens, is 6,000yds in length and a par 70 from the medal tees. The undulating greens provide a real test for your putting skills, but accuracy off the tee is paramount for good scoring. Having already held PGA professional events the course has proved enjoyable but challenging to golfers of all abilities.
The Golf Academy and Driving Range are open to golfers of all ages and abilities from beginners to more advanced. Working with the team of professionals, visitors can take a trip to the Academy and Driving Range, offering designated tuition bays, custom fit suite, practice bays, a specialist short game area and café where you can relax in the comfortable surroundings before or after your practice session.
In addition, our new 9-hole Yearling course is an excellent opportunity to sharpen your short game, or even as a warm-up for a full 18. Coupled with the Pitch and Putt course, these are excellent practice areas designed to improve your ability. The Academy and Driving Range is the perfect place to perfect your game before you play the beautifully presented Lee Westwood Colt or Lee Westwood Filly courses. The Golf Academy offers you the opportunity to focus on key aspects of your game through custom design designed lessons in specialist video teacher bays. Our team can also help you with a series of lessons designed around your individual requirements.

The food on offer at Close House’s No.19 Restaurant is among the best you will find anywhere, not just the best at a golf club. We take as much care with our canapés at a simple drinks reception as we do with the food for a formal dinner – and we think our steak sandwich could be the best in the land.
Bespoke menus can be created, we can cater for barbecues or simply try the Close House Classic Sandwich – all featuring the very best local, seasonal produce. Our brigade of skilled chefs buy meat and game from Northumberland and fish from the Tyne and the North East coast to create stunning seasonal menus.
This bounty can be matched with wines from a sensational list created exclusively for Close House. We also offer some of the world’s greatest champagnes and serve the very best beers and spirits.
