Perfect weather

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.

Good variety of holes

I like this course as even tho it's not overly long ,there are a few holes where driver is not an option and you have to plan your shots. Course in very good condition , good layout

Beatiful well kept, scenic course

Brilliantly week kept fairways, greens and bunkers. The greenkeeping star do an excellent job here. Great course with some lovely scenery overlooking Newcastle and Gibside.

Excellent variation

First time I've played the course since the rearrangement of the course, it troubled my GPS from the third to 6th holes, but that was a trivial inconvenience.

The course was in fantastic condition for late April after a wet winter.

Excellent use of the natural lay of the land and a good variation of hole

types.

Our winner on the day had 33 Stapleford points playing off 10, many of

the holes leave you with a short iron if you hit a definite enter drive, poor drives aren't always punished badly, for example, I hooked my tee shot from the first and sat in the rough on the wrong side of the 2nd fairway, although I had a 3 ft high wall to negotiate, I was still able to reach the green with my second shot.

A definite contender for next year.

This downside isn't connection Ted to Golf Now or Tees Off Times, but for years the club wouldn't have us as a golf society on a Sunday, but a group of 6 of us were welcomed with open arms.

Great value for money and as I say, a definite contender for next year

Lovely layout

I played this course on bank holiday Monday and couldn't believe how quiet it was, the course itself has a really good layout plenty of doglegs but not a very long course (I very rarely used my driver) we didn't use any of the facilities at the club so can't comment but was really impressed with everything else and for £14 you really can't grumble

Whickham

We enjoyed the golf but almost every tee was still a winter tee and still some winter greens.

This should be made clear when you are handing over the money

Best Regards

Nice course, great views

Stopped off to play on the way to Scotland. What a treat. Less able may be better off in a buggy as it is quite hilly. However well worth the effort with a good variety of challenging holes. The course played quite long and there are a couple of blind holes with hidden ditches but if you check the course markers they are shown. Would definitely play again given the chance.
