Majestic course but very Challenging

Turned up early and the very pleasant lad at the counter says I could go straight off which was nice of him.

Course is a real challenge with long par 4's and plenty of undulation. With the recent deluge the course had held up remarkably well with just the odd damp spot on the fairway and the occasionally bunker flooded. Despite this the course is in beautiful condition with perfectly cut fairways and the greens run true and are very fast!

The signature hole has to be the 16th which plays just shy of 500 yards and climbs about 1000 yards!
A majestic hole which I very doubt has ever been reached in two before!

I highly recommend this course, easily one of the best in Northumberland, but at least use a trolley and don't carry your bag like one idiot did!!

Moffat Golf Club away day's.

It's been a few year's since we played the Priestman course at Slaley Hall. To cut a long story short it was fantastic, tee's, fairway's and green's were to be praised.The whole experience around the golf course's is that of a very good golf resort where we as a group of very keen golfer's will surely return.

FANTASTIC

Having not played this course for several years I found the course to be in fabulous condition. Tees, fairways and greens were immaculate and the green keepers should feel proud of their achievement. The layout is challenging and the rough is severe to make finding an errant ball impossible, just as you should expect at a top class course. The only downside was the pace of play (4 hours 20 minutes) on a midweek afternoon. Visit for the fabulous course just make sure you leave plenty of time and enjoy the scenic beauty of Northumberland at its best.

Fantastic Round of Golf

Slaley Hall have it nailed. The friendliness and courtesy extended to our group today was second to none. The course recovered well after all the rain it had seen in recent days and played remarkably well. Great Golf Great Hospitality and most importantly Great Staff, We’ll be back

Great course with stunning views

The course was in excellent condition even though there had been torrential rain on Saturday. Probably the best it has been at this time of year for several years. You do need to stay on the fairway to stand a chance of a good score as the grass in the rough is thick and impossible to get out of. Greens in excellent condition.

lovely course and day out

Course was immaculate and great value for money however it is very long and the rough brutal. I would recommend a buggy but be aware the cost is £35 - twice the price of our golf. I think the course knows they have a "captured" audience and price according. Lovely day out though and highly recommend.

Priestman Course

Course still in good condition for time of year with greens especially pleasing. Fantastic value at only £12 and perfect option for a round of winter golf.

Great course

Nice course with nice views of Northumberland. Unfortunately the greens have been micro tighted,so some greens were a bit bobberly.Dont not soil the round .The greens played ok.The best hole on the course is the par 5 4th,second shot over water if you hit a good tee shot,which I did & got a 2 putt birdie.Will come back.

Disappointing greens

The greens are in a state of repair which is acceptable but the amount of sand made it very difficult to putt consistently.
