GOLFING

Golfing in Northumberland is a sheer delight, and the BEST WESTERN Beaumont is just the place to stay.

We are only a couple of minutes drive from Hexham, a very pleasant Parklands Course. Superb greens, tightish fairways and lovely scenery. It also has a wonderful clubhouse, well more a stately home.

A 15 minute drive away is Matfen Hall, a course created in the ground's of a stately home. Pretty long but buggies are available.

Also 15 minutes away is Slaley Hall, my home Club. Two superb courses. The older course, the Hunting, is a true Championship challenge. Water, rough, tight fairways, tricky greens. I have still to tame it! The Priestman, however, is a different kettle of fish. It is a Championship Course, the home of the Northern Seniors, but it is wider and more forgiving. Wonderful scenery, massive greens, lots of lovely water and nice big fairways. On this course it is possible to say that you have tied with Slaley.

If you are staying at the BEST WESTERN Beaumont we can get very good rates at all the local courses. Slaley Hall, Matfen, Hexham, Bellingham, Prudhoe & Stocksfield.

GOLFING - SLALEY'S HUNTING

Slaley in the summer is the best place on earth!

The weather may be somewhat different, but winter is a wonderful time to play golf in Northumberland. Millionaires golf, you have the course to yourselves.

GOLFING - SLALEY'S PRIESTMAN

It was the home of the north's Senior Open. Not as well-known as the Hunting but a super challenge of golf. A very picturesque course with large undulating fairways and water.

It will not destroy your game, it will give you a chance.

GOLFING - EASY GAME

Boldly go where no one should go.

This page is an example of how you can make the game of golf rather difficult. I keep telling the children to join me on the fairway, but no one listens!

GOLFING - HEXHAM

Probably one of the most picturesque courses you will ever play, and only 2 minutes from the hotel.
