Challenging heathland course near city centre

Built mostly within the bounds of Newcastle Race Course, "The Park" as it is known locally is a challenging heathland course with firm, fast and difficult greens, rolling rigg and furrow fairways and almost always windy conditions, almost playing like an inland links course. Course furniture is sparse by design so get a course map. There is a full practice range reserved for visitors and members. Pace of play is very fast as the course is not excessively booked. The clubhouse and staff are welcoming and does good quality and value food and there is a spike bar, a slightly more formal lounge and formal dining room to chose from. It has been an Open Qualifier venue in recent years and is a good test of golf, playing close or to your handicap is a great result if you dont know the course.

Strange experience because I joined the club around that time partly on the basis that the greens were firm, fast and true. The green is a marker for wetting agent if Im not mistaken. Not paint LOL. Sorry you didnt like the layout, but it's an Open qualifying venue so the R&A seem to think its a good test of golf.
