Burgham Park is a championship parkland course located in the lovely Northumberland countryside, 20 minutes from Newcastle and just a few miles north of Morpeth, just off the A1. It has panoramic views of Simonside hills to the West and the coast to the East. The course in beautiful rolling countryside provides a challenging round for all abilities, playing off the championship tees measuring 7065 yards, the medal tees at 6804 yards and the leisure tees at 6403 yards. The maturing parklands with water hazards, is both beautiful and tranquil and includes some of the finest greens in the region. Former Ryder Cup captain Mark James was part of the design team that developed the course in 1994, which has been constantly improved over the years. Since 2001 the course has been under the ownership of Irish businessman William Kiely. His long term commitment to the course has been evidenced by the ongoing ten year improvement plan. The numerous improvements to the course, include several fairway ditches, a lake on the 13th, many reshaped bunkers and several new tees. The improvements in drainage and extensive pathway work ensure that the course is invariably open all year round playing on summer greens and tees. The course has a grass bay driving range and an excellent practice area.
