Risk and reward

Great course with a variety of risk and reward holes! Played with my son today and would love to be a member here just the 40 min drive that is stopping me! Great friendly staff and the course was in great condition apart from a couple of greens. Would love to bring my son back again.

Good test, take plenty balls!

Two great courses here at Longhurst both a good test. It is quite easy to lose your ball, so it's all about where not to put your shot!

I started with a canny sausage sandwich with proppa broon sauce (HP) then teed off at 10am. The course was in great nick apart from the 17th where the green was covered in geese sh1t and geese who wouldn't budge! That's nature for you I guess! Pace of play was good until 15th where I caught up with a 3 ball who typically would not wave me through and were very slow. Don't be put off though both of Longhursts courses are well worth the visit.

Very well kept but major lack of info during play

Really impressed this with course, being high handicappers we lost a lot of balls throughout the day due to all the water hazards but I still found the challenging aspect excellent.

The real down fall is the total lack of information provided, the markers at the tea boxes are faded so you can’t tell if they are yellow or white, and it’s not very clear where the total yardage is specifically taken from at each hole. This doubled with very few 100/150 yard markers and no colour coding of flags to show where the pin position is causes both frustration and extra minutes and strokes added to the round. Simple additions could make this lovely looking course so much more functional.

Unfriendly pro shop

Booked a four ball and when I rang to book a buggy as two of my friends can't play without one was told they were on a first come first served basis. As there was no indication of this when I booked the tee times I explained that if I turned up and no buggy was available my friends couldn't play and we has already paid for the fourball the pro shop said they couldn't help me. I think this should be made apparent when booking. When we arrived we asked for a buggy and were told that we couldn't book it even though we were there until 30 mins before our tee time, even though we offered to pay for it. The pro shop welcome was extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. The only friendly person at the course was the lady in the bar who gave us our food. I have played golf at many courses but wouldn't recommend this course there if definitely not a welcome for visitors, perhaps it's because they are not getting any money.

First time playing

First time playing Longhirst Lakes. Played with my grandson who is 15 and I am 65 and we both enjoyed it very much.

The tees require attention and the greens need time to repair them selfs as they are well used.

We would definitely play Longhirst again as it’s a testing course and very long with loads of water.

Longhirst - THE LAKES

Thoroughly enjoyed the game on Sunday afternoon. I found the layout, the course condition and especially the greens outstanding. Without doubt I would recommend this to any golfer of any standard.

Even makes me think of joining the club I was that impressed!

Extremely scenic

I had friends visiting from the south and my club was unable to accommodate us until the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday due to a medal comp.

We chose to play at Longhirst due to friends recommendations. Tee off Times had some good offers which we took advantage of on a Saturday.

There are two courses - we played 'The Lakes'. There are excellent views of Northumberland as you make you way around a well set out course with some really interesting and challenging holes, with plenty of water, as you would expect.

The fairways were in excellent condition and our only small recommendation would be to speed up the greens. In this respect we are used to quite quick greeens at our home clubs.

The clubhouse is confortable and gas a good range of reasonably priced food and drinks.

I would definitely recommend this course and would like to play it again.
