Men day out

Got a good offer on 4 balls,?the sunny day and the course was in very good conditions. The greens were running very true, made some long putts. A very enjoyable day, everyone were impressed, we have played before a few years back but certainly will come back again

Very enjoyable

I'd only played Whickham once before today and that was over 25 years ago so I couldn't remember much of the course especially as we started the round at the 10th due to an event thay day. Really impressive and challenging course. Fairways and greens were in great condition with just a bit of give due to rain through the week. Good positioning is essential if you want to hit a decent score. Some lovely holes. Very impressed overall and I'll make I won't let another 25 years pass before I make a return !!

Lovely parkland course

Needed to play a course two thirds of the way to Rothbury weekend away that we could book online around 1 to 2pm and found Wickham on GolfNow. Three of us thoroughly enjoyed our round although unfairly lost a great drive that was blind! At £13 it was a bargain and we recommenced the deal to friends who played a month later. Just off the motorway and nice bar area.

Great course

Booked this course for location mainly as travelling North and wanted a round near A1 2/3rds to Thropton. Great price and perfect tee time. Pace of play excellent and course in great condition. Shot one over my handicap so was happy. Will return if passing.

Course in good condition and fair challenge for most golfers

I have only played this course a few times but it has always been in good condition there is good bounce on the fairways so you get a good carry green are emasculate even pace a cross all 18 holes. A fair challenge for the majority of golfers

Loved it. Tranquil and some stunning views

I played this course on a lovely frosty morning so until the course started to dry out the ball did not run as far but what a fantastic course to play. On arrival there was nobody around(all closed) so I started my round in total tranquillity. An uphill start leads to some quality first holes although it can be a little confusing as to where to go next once the greens had dried out I found they were very true and challenging. The rough was very generous with barely a blade of grass above 4 inches the course was generally in very good condition. Very hilly but well worth the visit although I wouldn't want to play on a windy North East day ! Would highly recommend

Will Be Back, But!

Very nice course , Tree lined with some Great views. Course in very good condition for time of year, Greens true considering been holatined. Lot of Doglegs and few Blind shots where Tee shot vital. The reason I look forward to going back.'BUT' Only downside was we Tee'd off at 10am on a Tuesday and we followed a Seniors comp around so play very slow as you can imagine.

Great course

Had a great morning at the course and thoroughly enjoyed every moment, course is in good condition, only one downside is that the course is not properly synced with gps watches.

Many thanks and I will surely play again in the near future.
