The 18-hole Lee Westwood filly Course is situated in the grounds of the Close House Estate, providing stunning views of the River Tyne Valley. The Parkland Layout was re-designed and re-opened in 2007. It now has 18 USGA specification greens, is 6000 yards in length and a par 70 from the medal tees. The tricky greens provide a real test for your putting skills, but accuracy off the tee is paramount for good scoring. Having already held PGA professional events the course has proved challenging to golfers of all abilities.
Opened by Lee Westwood in May 2011, the design of The Lee Weswood Colt tips its hat to the great English golf architect Harry Colt. While nothing is copied directly, the rectangular tees, the bunker forms, and the variety in Par threes are all features conceived from the distilled themes of this most brilliant architect.

Played the Colt Course. I traveled to Newcastle a few years back and had the opportunity to play on this stunning course. I was surprised by the amazing landscape that Close House offers. The Colt Course is a links style and is very challenging. My favorite hole was the 14th, a small par 3 all in the trees with the smallest green of the course but the entire course is also magnificent. the clubhouse is charming and you can enjoy a beautiful terrace when the sun is shining. I strongly recommend to play Close House if you are travelling to Newcastle.
