Championships, challenge and charm
The course regularly hosts national and regional championships and qualifiers, including for the Open. Designed by world-renowned golf course architects Harry Shapland Colt and James Braid between 1898 and the 1920s, it offers the very best in British heritage course design.
We have taken great care to stay true to the designers’ vision, whilst accommodating modern equipment and making the course accessible and enjoyable for players of all standards. With its firm, fast greens and strategic bunkering, we describe the course as a classic challenge requiring tactical play to succeed.
Its unique location, weaving across and around Newcastle Racecourse adds to its charm.
