Close House Northum­ber­land

Golf World (UK) - - COURSES -

The Euro­pean Tour re­turns to the north of Eng­land in Septem­ber when Lee West­wood hosts the Bri­tish Masters at Close House.

West­wood – who now lives in New­cas­tle – of­ten plays, prac­tises and lunches here, and it’s not dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand why.

The Ry­der Cup stal­wart has also had in­put into one of Close House’s two cour­ses, the Colt, which is backed up by an­other 18-holer in the Filly, one of the best prac­tice fa­cil­i­ties in the coun­try and a swish club­house that serves high­cal­i­bre food.

There is also limited but world-class ac­com­mo­da­tion on site in the form of lux­ury apart­ments.

Any­one com­pil­ing a rank­ing of the finest golf re­sorts in Bri­tain would have to have Close House prom­i­nent in their think­ing.
