Slaley Hall - Priestman Course

  • The Priestman course is a slightly newer course than its sister, the Hunting course. Although many golfers that come to Slaley Hall want to take on the Hunting course, the Priestman layout is superb and beautifully compliments a round on the Hunting course. 

    The Priestman course was opened for play in 1999 and isn’t considered to be the most difficult of golf courses but you still will need to play a good fame in order to finish the round with a good scorecard. The course is made difficult by the fact that there are many, strategically placed, gaping bunkers positioned along the course and these sand traps are the course’s biggest defence. The course presents an array of golfing challenges along the way with the gaping bunkers and several water hazards along the way. However, the course boasts beautifully wide fairways which should inspire you with confidence right from the tee shot. From many of the holes you can enjoy panoramic views over the lovely, Northumberland countryside. The Priestman course at Slaley Hall is the perfect companion for its sister course, the Hunting course, and is the perfect holiday course with stunning views, an interesting layout and firm but fair hazards for you to navigate your way around.

    Full details

    The Priestman course stretches away from the resort itself and boasts stunning views of the Northumberland countryside from each of the impressive 18 holes here. Due to the fact that the course is more open than the Hunting course, it is much more exposed to the wind which can make your round here a little difficult. 
    Before you round, take a few practice shots at the club’s driving range and after you have finished your 18th putt, enjoy a few drinks and a meal in the clubhouse where you can discuss your successes of your round whilst enjoying the atmosphere of the clubhouse.
    You are gently eased into the round on the Priestman course with two gentle opening par-4s but then you must face a few difficult but cracking short holes! The par-5 4th hole boasts an elevated tee from which you can enjoy breathtaking views of the rolling countryside before you wind your way down the fairway before reaching the green which is lurking behind two small ponds.  
    The 11th hole is a short hole with a ‘drop’ green but you must carry your ball over the burn in order to reach the green successfully. The course boasts an expansive and interesting layout which will suit both big-hitters and those who play more strategically.
    The Priestman course is the perfect accompaniment to a great few nights’ stay at Slaley Hall Hotel.
