Close House Golf Club

Set in the beautiful and serene Tyne Valley, only seven miles outside the centre of Newcastle and nestled between the banks of the River Tyne and near the ancient remains of Hadrian’s Wall; the 250-year-old Close House estate has been lovingly formed into two of the best courses in the country.

Close House has gained a place in the UK’s top 100 golf courses and is recognised as the home of championship golf in the North East.  The two 18-hole Lee Westwood Championship Colt and Filly courses and 9-hole Yearling course are something worth admiring.  The club provides one of the most varied golfing challenges, appealing to players of all skill levels and golfing abilities.

We have corporate membership at Close House and welcome guests of The Old Rectory to play. For more information and prices please email  We recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
